We're Talespinners!

Struggling with your story? Problems with your prose? Stuck on your setting? We can help!

Talespinners is an outsource writing studio for games and immersive experiences. We work with plot, text, dialogue, and design to make sure your narrative is as good as it can be. We’re happy to fix problems in an existing story, and we’re equally happy to work with clients to create whole new gameworlds, characters, and narrative experiences.

Game Writing

We write games, and we help you write games! We’ve worked on everything from big-budget console titles to micro-budget mobile games, and we can help you bring your concepts to life.


Interactive Story

It’s easy to get in a tangle when your story reacts to the player. We’ve been writing non-linear narratives for twenty years, and can guide you through the maze.


Narrative Design

We’re game designers as well as writers, and can help you decide how to deliver your story to make the most of your themes, whatever the medium.
