Interview with ElectricSheepCompany
ESC is a superbly innovative virtual worlds company, mostly based out of NY (like Unity, they have a diaspora of cool employees all over the place). They’re most famous for their SecondLife work, but now that everyone is tiring of SL (no?) they’re of course looking at the next possibilities. And if you want to build a virtual world today, Unity’s the obvious #1 (number-only?) choice.
During GDC this year I met up with John Swords III, business developer at ESC (and a really impressive guy). He did an impromptu interview with me there (we had to hide in a corner next to a garbage-can to get a sufficiently quiet spot to do the recording), which I think gives a good image of my thoughts about Unity this spring… with a sprinkling of history in between.
