Game Story

Hi guys!

Problem:
I was listening to a TA podcast a few days ago and it was mentioned that game designers are struggling to put good stories into their games because they cannot afford writers. They have to come up with something themselves, despite not being very well equipped for that kind of thing.

Solution:
I like to think of myself as a writer. Certainly not the best, but people seem to enjoy reading my stories. I was thinking that I'd like to try my hand at writing a game story.

My problem:
I'm not expecting much, would just like to try something different - if it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out. But do I have a shot? How can I express my interest to some developers that might give me a chance? Perhaps a forum here on TA, or somewhere else on the interwebs?

Cheers!

Thanks a lot!

I was sure there was a forum like that, just couldn't find it for some reason. (turns out you can scroll on the list of forums... Oops!)

I'll keep you in mind, though I'm not going to be making that kind of decision! You seem to be quite accomplished too - I don't know how well that sits with me making my first foray into unknown territory.
