Thinking outside the box and pushing boundaries is in our team’s DNA

Our team

Patrice Désilets

Cofounder and Creative Director

Patrice now cumulates 23 years in the games industry and has been recognized over the years for his audacity and thinking outside the box. With a background in theater, improvisation and cinema, he gets his creative inspiration in all sorts of art forms as well as in history. Most known for his work on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and as the original creative director behind the global success franchise Assassin’s Creed, Patrice decided to found his own studio in 2014 in order to have complete creative freedom and create new and original IPs such as Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

Jean-François Boivin

Cofounder and Executive Producer

With a background in Project Management, JF has been in the gaming world for over 15 years managing teams ranging in sizes of 30 to over 300, across multiple studios and on different continents. As cofounder of Panache, he is in charge of game production as well as studio operations, making him a center piece of the studio's success along side Patrice. Other than his role as co-head of Panache, JF's years of experience have led him to become in 2016 a member of the Board of Directors of La Guilde, a non profit organization whose main mandate is to promote the Québec video game industry locally and internationally and to support its development as a global hub.
