Catching Up with Scott Hartsman at IMGDC 2.0

Life After SOE
Life After SOE

Ten Ton Hammer's Cameron Sorden had the opportunity to sit down with Scott Hartsman at the recent IMGDC 2.0 conference for an interview, and we now have some of the very first public details about what exactly it is that Scott might be working on, as well as getting his unique perspective on starting a company from the ground up after years of working at an established industry giant.

TTH: So, how have you been? What's it been like to leave SOE and start up your own thing?

Scott: It's been a lot of different adjectives. Everything from fun, to scary, to exciting—mostly exciting. There were three of us who left SOE together, and we only had kind of a vague idea of what it was we wanted to do, so we wanted to take some time to explore it and do our own development since we could all afford to do it. None of us live extravagant lifestyles and we've been saving up our money for the last few years. We thought, "Hey, this could be a great time to do this kind of thing. Lets take a chance and worst case, we're all on good terms—we could still go get jobs elsewhere."
