Design at Night School Studio
At Night School designers invent new ways to play with interactive stories. Our studio’s goal is to create world-class narrative games, and this all begins with the design. The building blocks of our games are the storytelling mechanics – designers define what they are, and how they all fit together.
About the Job
In our studio, designers have two main roles. The first is to imagine new games and mechanics to tell amazing stories. This involves working closely with narrative, writing, art, and engineering to bring these ideas to life. Then, when a script is written, and art assets created, it is the designer’s job to place them in a scene and make it fun to play. This requires a deep understanding of not only design principles but of cinematic techniques and storytelling.

Implementing story scenes into the engine using proprietary tools
