On the podcast this week is Gary MacCarten, the CEO of Dundee-based AR and VR specialists Pocket Sized Hands. This chat with Gary was another of the terrific conversations put together by Sebastian MacKay of The Scottish Business Podcast earlier this year. Seb’s kindly let us re-air all of his videogame interviews, including one-to-ones with Maxwell Scot-Slade of Glitchers (makers of Drive Buy) and Marc Williamson from Tag Games.
Gary gives Seb a younger games company’s perspective on the industry and Scotland as well as an insight into how an indie studio can use consistent client work as a launch pad for developing their own original titles. Originally from Ireland, Gary also explains how Abertay University attracted him to Dundee in the first place and the important role that the university and its links with local veterans has played in fostering a healthy industry.
