Ren Alex-Rose

Narrative Designer | Game Writer | Author

Storytelling is what I do. I have established my career in Narrative Design and Game Writing because games have the ability to touch and transform individuals in a way other media cannot. Simply put, I believe interactivity is the future of storytelling, and I intend to be part of that future.

I am currently working as a Writer on an ambitious AAA horror-adventure title at Firesprite Games.

Previously, I worked with Soma Games on seven upcoming titles in The Lost Legends of Redwall series. I started at Soma in 2019 as a Narrative Designer and Game Writer, but was promoted to Lead ND/Game Writer in 2020.

I have also:

  • Published three short stories
  • Worked in development at Hivemind Entertainment
  • Edited and story consulted an award-winning short film
  • Tutored university students in narrative writing
  • Received a BFA in Cinematic Arts Production and a Minor in English Writing and Literature
  • Am writing my debut novel
  • Am working on multiple upcoming games and works of prose
  • + more!

As a kid, I wasn’t allowed to own video games, and so they became a sacred wonder in my life. I’d impatiently look forward to visiting my cousins just so we might play Super Smash Bros Melee or Ocarina of Time. The day I turned eighteen, I bought my own PS3. And so…I guess my parents’ plan sort-of backfired!

I pursued film first, thinking I wanted to be a director. But by the time I graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2019 with a film degree, I knew it wasn’t where I belonged. I started making video games with friends for fun, and I found my start in the industry at Soma Games following graduation, where I was immediately thrown into writing their multi-million-dollar Redwall series.

I haven’t turned back, nor do I plan to.

Note: I have previously been known or credited by the names “Amy Rose,” “A. R. Lowery,” and currently publish prose under the pen name “Alexander Ren”
