Patrice Désilets is the Cofounder & Creative Director at Panache Digital Games, an independent Montreal-based studio he co-founded in 2014. With a background in film and theater and now counting 22 years of game design under the belt, he is mostly known for his work on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and as the creative director behind the global success franchise Assassin’s Creed from his years at Ubisoft Montreal. His first independent title Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, a historical action-adventure survival game, is throwing players in the African jungle 10 million years ago and asking one simple question: “You Homo Sapiens, can you survive like your ancestors did?”
