Write a Walk-Through; Get Paid to Play

23 February 2011
Writing a walk-through requires genuine interest in a game, keen observation and precise word choice. You will explore every inch of the game and uncover any secret or tip there is to find. In addition, you might need to replay the game to ensure that you're not giving away random guesses.

A number of gaming enthusiasts write walk-throughs for fun. A few lucky gamers get paid to do the work. This summer, you might be one of the few gamers out there who will qualify for the opportunity!

Longer than your typical cheat sheet, a walk-through is a detailed piece of writing that literally guides your readers in a game. The document contains tips, explanations and detailed help on how to complete a mission, solve a puzzle or defeat enemies. Players who feel stuck in a certain level often consult a walk-through. Well, you probably know more than I do about writing a walk-through if you're a hard-core gamer reading this blog right now. So, good luck on your application!
