Prior to entering the games industry Mat Hart was a professionally trained project manager working for the UK’s National Air Traffic Services Ltd. He has worked on projects such as radar tower installations, roll-out of new radio communications systems and re-engineering of business software systems. He gave it all up to wear shorts…
He spent a little over a year at LEGO Interactive working as the external Project Manager on games such as “Bionicle” and “LEGO Stars Wars” as well as two unreleased games: “LEGO Soccer Adventure” and “LEGO Racers: Create + Control”.
He then joined Kuju Entertainment Ltd as Project Manager on “Battalion Wars”, subsequently working on the early stages of “Battalion Wars 2”, plus an unannounced Wii game and the final stages of a PC game called “The Regiment”.
Mat joined Ninja Theory in early 2006, taking the role of Producer on Heavenly Sword, a PlayStation3 exclusive published by SCEE. He is responsible for the project overall and works hard with his team of Leads to deliver the best quality game possible in the timescales permitted.
Mat is now the Head of Production at Ninja Theory and has recently delivered Heavenly Sword across multiple SKUs.
When he’s not working Mat loves spending time with his family. He also plays a ton of pen and paper roleplaying games and coming from Essex, he isn’t afraid of being a called a geek.
