In 2019, Lisa Kolfjord was planning to start her own games company with some friends from her university. Instead, she took a job with a tiny independent game studio in Sweden working on it’s very first game, hired to split her time between being a 3D artist and a community manager. The company was Iron Gate Studios, the game was Valheim, and as we all know by now, it immediately became a massive hit that drew over five million players within its first 30 days of Early Access.

As you can guess, Kolfjord’s focus at Iron Gate quickly had to shift away from 3D art and into managing those millions of Vikings full time at the five-person studio.
