The following is a writing sample for a fictional video game, FTL RACING, written by Andrew Ivimey. The setting is a racing game with spaceships. Different styles of ships race through dangerous galaxies and asteroid belts, avoiding obstacles while fighting each other. Racers have different gangs and guilds they have aligned themselves with. A playfully aggressive tone that's Borderlands meets Burnout. These barks are for two announcers who are broadcasting the race.
The following is a barks writing sample for a fictional video game, ALIEN OCCUPATION, a shooter that takes place in the near future where aliens have invaded and occupied most of the Earth. Despite the dire circumstances, groups of human resistance hold out and organize a resistance to fight back. Last Of Us's depiction of humanity vs Gears of Wars depiction of unknown enemies. Aliens are 7ft tall spider like creatures, who can crawl on all legs but most often walk upright on two (think General Grievous or Goro) and have a spider face with multiple eyes. Despite the insectoid appearance the aliens have ships, weapons, armor, communication, and vastly outmatch the humans. The human resistance is composed of whoever is left and willing to fight; ex-military, survivalists, desperate fools seeking revenge, and the generally lucky.
The follow is a sample script for a quest. It takes place in an RPG fantasy game where factions of humans, werewolves, and vampires all fight for control in the early years of war. The PLAYER character is on the human side but is a tri-breed, one with the ability to switch between human, werewolf, and vampire form on command. This is a Main Quest cutscene and subsequent barks relating to the quest.
