About Us

Black Hat Writing is a small game writing outfit, creating text based roleplaying games on our own, and contracting out with video game developers to provide story and writing.

At the moment, the flagship project  is Theatre Noir. This is a tabletop role-playing game in a dark, modern setting, with the primary focus on vanilla mortals. Optional modules can add rules for supernatural elements, but any given game may or may not be totally mundane. The system is an innovative system built around using the dice size to reflect difficulty, rather than using the target number to reflect difficulty.

We are also currently writing for one android game that is in production, but has not been announced yet, and have a few other projects in the pipeline.

Black Hat Writing is currently hiring for game writers! If you think you have what it takes, go over to the "Become a Writer!" page and fill out the application form.
