Sam Rowett is a professional Game & Narrative Designer.  He has a wide range of experience covering multiplatform AAA titles, educational games, and independent projects.  His work has been showcased at major UK events, such as EGX and the PC Gamer Weekender.

With two Master's degrees, one in Creative Writing from the University of Essex and another in Game Design & Development from the National Film & Television School, Sam is uniquely equipped to design anything from a complex narrative game to a casual mobile title.

Beginning as a freelance games journalist, Sam entered the industry as Game & Narrative Designer for King's College London's groundbreaking Ludico initiative; creating digital learning experiences for postgraduate students.  In 2022, he moved to Guildford to work for Supermassive Games; the esteemed horror studio behind The Dark Pictures series.

Sam was inspired by the writing styles of Takumi Miyajima (Tales of Symphonia) and Amy Hennig (The Legacy of Kain), and also has a strong interest in classic gothic horror and the post-apocalyptic work of Kazuma Kaneko.  He is adept at penning succinct, punchy dialogue and is especially interested in role-playing games (RPGs) and other character-driven stories.

In addition to writing and designing games, Sam provides voice overs for other games and web projects: including PlotTwist Studios' Women of Xal and the First Aid Spray Podcast.  He has also branched out into 2D and 3D art and animation, with a particular interest in heroes, magic, and monsters.

Sam is also an avid baker, has pretty much committed the script of Monty Python and the Holy Grail to memory, and holds the correct opinion that Yorkshire Tea is the only acceptable brew.
