Myrkur announces a new title for 2020

We at Myrkur are incredibly excited and happy to announce that we have started development of a new fantasy RPG! During the next three years, we are all fully committed to creating the most amazing and epic gaming experience possible. Due to the ambitiousness of our new game, we’ll be expanding the team in the near future – so make sure you stay tuned!

The game will feature a female protagonist(more on the protagonist later, we promise she’s very interesting and fun!) who must face numerous challenges in the dangerous and exciting fantasy world. The game will feature semi-open environments, engaging combat and difficult choices that challenge the protagonist’s morality!

The upcoming game, a new prototype and Myrkur’s vision. All in the introductory video below!

Myrkur working on a new title

Myrkur’s new role-playing title focused on providing gripping narrative and engaging combat within an immersive fantasy world.

We at Myrkur are excited to announce our fantasy role-playing game (title not yet disclosed) to be released in 2020!  We are now in the beginning of a truly exciting journey and we invite you to follow along with development updates on our website and Youtube channel. The Myrkur team is completely committed to developing an inspiring and unforgettable gaming experience.



An intense and fun sidescroller with rogue-like elements, fun combat and engaging visuals.

Face off your enemies with an arsenal of creative spells or try your skill with magically imbued swords in the lower crypts of Zev’ru. Warden of Averon is a fun and challenging side-scroller created by Myrkur.


Immerse your entire body inside VR!

What if you could have your full body tracked inside virtual reality experiences?

That’s the question that inspired Myrkur to develop a technology which allows users to enter virtual environments with a full virtual body that is tracked in real time. All of this accomplished by our Full Body VR tech using consumer grade hardware and requiring minimal setup.


Games and Virtual Reality Education

We create educational content and bring VR to people all around!

We develop educational material for highs school students who want to study or work in video games and virtual reality. We are inspired to help strengthen the education available to young students who share our passion for games or are interested in working in the industry.
