Mass Effect is a best-selling video game franchise by Microsoft and EA, with over 16 million copies sold by 2018.
Daniel was hired in 2014 by Montreal-based developer BioWare for the 4th installment of the franchise—Mass Effect Andromeda—to design the two hero vehicles: the Tempest ship and the Mako rover. The game was released in 2017, as the 3rd best-selling game of the year, with Daniel’s exact designs. Great creative freedom was given for both vehicles, while respecting the requirements for story and gaming, as well as the legacy of the franchise.
The Tempest was subsequently released as a collectable scale model, the Mako as a remote controlled toy.
