About

Linkedin ProfileHello!

I am Thomas Clement and I am a freelance video game narrative writer.

I attended the University of Portsmouth, studying Creative Writing and Film Studies. I graduated in July 2017, with a 2:1 of 68.4%.

At university, I began to write video games, each tackling a different tone, style and genre and I now work as a freelance writer, as well as writing theory on games.

Check out my games portfolio here and my articles and essays here.

In terms of games, I have experience in;

  • Writing as an individual as well as in a team in a writing room environment.
  •  Continuing work from a previous writer’s script or developing my own.
  • Writing linear and non-linear scripts (dialogue and description), chapter breakdowns character/location bibles and branching narrative maps, alongside editing and re-writing to a deadline.
  • Collaborating with other departments such as game design to realise the creative vision.

As well as writing narrative, I also have experience in writing critically on video games and films.

  • I ran The Student Film Review, a film review website, which was awarded one of the “Best Student Blogs Of 2016” by Bellvue Students.
  • On tomclement1.wordpress.com, I have written on several topics such as game narrative, dialogue, level design, LGBT characters, violence and gender representation.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my site, I hope you enjoy my work!
