Freelance & Client Work

Outer Veil – Lead Storyline & Content Writer

From beginning, I was part of the design team for the Indie MMORPG “Outer Veil”. Made from a community left over from a favorite video game going under, the players of one game made their own.

I started out as a storyline writer for the game and moved up to Lead Writer for Content and Storyline; designing the background, timeline and descriptions for all factions and items. If it had text, it came through me!


Remnants of the Precursors

A Java-based modernization of the original Master of Orion game from 1993.

I was commissioned by the games developers to create a timeline for the game as well as little snippits of the lore that players would be given during loading screens.

Derelict

I was approached by the designer of a pen and paper tabletop game called “Derelict” to create a story based through the course of the game.

The story involved the player waking up on a deterorated ship and trying to discover what caused it. A series of monsters chasing the player from room to room. This was an interesting project where players could re-enter rooms and be given new information based on what they had found


“Litty” Story based App – “The Day Everything Changed”

I was approached to create a full short story for a story based app called “Litty” (Linked)

This was a 10 chapter science fiction piece based around first contact with refugees of a human-like species fleeing the destruction of their homeworld; this led them to bring what is left of their civilisation to Earth. The story was one of politics, romances and hard decisions

Bohemia Interactive Simulations

For several months I worked as a Junior Designer for the company “Bohemia Interactive Simulations” in the Czech Republic’s capital of Prague. I worked on the VBS product sold to the Militaries of the world. I also spent a week in the QA department.

BISim aims to disrupt military simulation market again with ...

Forcewave

I was commissioned to create a short 1500 character story for the bio of a Spotify Album. A very interesting order to say the least with the word count being around 300 words maximum.

The story was of a Sci-Fi theme and had to include the name of the project in someway. The client was left extremely happy by the piece I sent him!

Author: Larkin

Hello there everyone! My name is Lewis Stockton and I am one of many things; I am a Writer, a Game Designer and Gamer. I am the creator of series' such as the "Fera World" Universe, "The Way the Stars Fall", "The Fall", "Worlds Apart", "Void Apostasy", "Unexpected Hero", "The Faithless" and numerous other short stories. My dream is to become a full time writer, to no longer have to work a 'conventional' job at my current work place and work from home. Writing is what I love and it is a shame I sometimes do not have time or the mindset to put in as much devotion as I wish due to working a full time job and the stress put on my mental health.
