Sam Rowett is a professional Game & Narrative Designer.
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. He has since gone on to work on other professional and independent titles, some of which have have been showcased at major UK events such as EGX and the PC Gamer Weekender.
Sam was inspired by the writing styles of Japanese and American writers Takumi Miyajima (Tales of Symphonia) and Amy Hennig (The Legacy of Kain), and also has a strong interest in classic gothic horror. He is adept at penning succinct, punchy dialogue and 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, and has pretty much committed the script of Monty Python and the Holy Grail to memory.
