New Game - Project Enigma (WIP)
Project Enigma follows a group of high school students that solve clues to uncover mystic artifacts. It is a balanced mix of upbeat slice-of-life comedy with mystery solving of the supernatural.

As a guideline, these are the three most important elements we'll be looking for in your writing application sample as it is the hallmark of our style:
Anime/Manga Humor (absolutely crucial)
Visual Novel Format (dialogue heavy // first person narration // VN script)
Choices/Branches (for player options)

You're asking people to submit writing samples without even providing a hint of what kind of pay you're offering or the amount of work required. That's a big red flag.

Yeah, what Winterslice said - I was wondering about that. There are folks (myself included) who have professional backgrounds that can be verified, so "test" writing isn't necessary.

I'm surprised a resume, portfolio, and a list of references isn't enough for a post this vague.
