My name is Daniel Roy, and I’m a digital storyteller.

I’m a senior AAA game writer and narrative designer, and my published game credits include Ubisoft’s Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Creative Assembly’s A Total War Saga: Troy, and EA Ghost’s Need for Speed Payback. I was a producer and project manager for Ubisoft and EA BioWare, and my production credits include Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent and an unpublished BioWare original IP.

I’m currently lead narrative designer at Ubisoft for Assassin’s Creed Shadows.

I know game development inside and out.


As both a narrative game designer and former producer, I know that developers play a balancing act with art, design, programming and storytelling. I excel within the constraints of game production: I know what it is to manage a game development cycle, and I’m here to help. I can work with your team to create a narrative that will not only support, but elevate the ambitions of your team.


I’m location-independent.

As a location-independent professional, I enjoy the freedom to work from anywhere in the world. I have the tools and skill set to work remotely, but I am open to periods of on-site collaboration as dictated by project needs. Originally from Montreal, Canada, I’ve visited fifty countries and lived in seven, and I’m currently based in Chengdu, China.

I’m a professional writer.

Writing is my career and my calling. In addition to writing game narratives, I’m also versed in the following:

  • Screenwriting
  • Fiction Writing
  • Film Editing
  • Copywriting & Copy Editing
  • Marketing & Ad Copy
  • Web Copywriting & SEO
  • French-English Translation


Let’s Talk!

Whether you’re creating your own mobile game alone in the proverbial garage, or you’re leading a AAA, multi-million-dollar production, I can help make your story shine and add that “wow” missing from your narrative design.

My rates are competitive and come with a guaranteed bang for your buck. Hit me up! Let’s create something your players will remember!
