While serving as the executive narrative director at Eidos-Montreal, DeMarle most recently received the 2022 Game Award for Best Narrative for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

Before working on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, DeMarle worked on Deus Ex: Human Revolution as a narrative director, lead writer, and designer.

Many gamers connected the plot beats of Mass Effect with the friendship and space adventure of the Guardians.

Others contrasted these fighting techniques with how fans control a single protagonist who can direct other squad members with unique talents.

Despite this, DeMarle’s work on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy may have helped her land the position of Senior Narrative Director due to her accomplishments and the game’s reception, particularly given how adaptable some of its beats may be to a group of NPC companions who dabble in interstellar travel.
