The Stanley Parable Co-Developer Is Hiring For A New Game

It's probably very meta.

There's something on the horizon for Davey Wreden's development studio Everything Unlimited Ltd., and you can apply to be a part of it. The Stanley Parable co-designer and The Beginner's Guide director put up two new applications for whatever his next project might be, and they're predictably vague.

This project, which Wreden asserts is not the new Stanley Parable, is looking for a gameplay programmer and systems engineer. Wreden writes that he's looking to produce games that are "beautiful, meditative, thoughtful, and sad."

Looking at the job descriptions, it sounds like the new game will be 3D and in third-person, "ala zelda [sic] or mario." Proficiency in Unreal Engine 4 is a plus as well. Wreden makes note of looking for a designer who can create, implement, and polish mundane gameplay tasks, "such as watering a garden or pouring tea" with a sense of charm.

Under the systems engineer listing, Wreden notes storage for a vast amount of data, including character dialogue. "The game will pull from this data pool at random times to create a generative series of events," he writes. Interesting; I wonder if this game will use some sort of procedural or random generation for its dialogue strings.

Of course, take it all with a grain of salt, as Wreden's games often end up bucking preconceived notions of what you think they are. The Stanley Parable got rave reception for its meta-gaming and writing, even burying secrets like an extremely rare trophy for not playing the game for five years. And while The Beginner's Guide had more mixed reactions, I was personally a fan of what that game did and how it went about it. It'll be interesting to see whatever Wreden and company are up to next as we learn more about what this game could be.
