Writing for computer games?

I'm a fiction writing and I've always wanted to be involved in the storytelling aspect of a computer game. Can I make this happen without a career change or having to take on technical or design stuff? If so, how?
I love well-written adventure games like Primordia (or anything by Wadjet Eye) and all of the big morally complex, story-rich RPGs like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and the Witcher. I'm aware that I'd be unable to take on anything that big without making it a career, but I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions on how I could be involved with a smaller project as a writer. How do indie game writers find visual and technical people to work with? Or is it basically impossible to just be the writer for a small game?
