MYRKUR SOFTWARE PARTICIPATION
Myrkur Software was invited as part of a relationship with Reykjavík University that was developed when the founders of the company started development of their first game in a Reykjavík University course directed by David James Thue and Marco Bancale. The game, Warden of Averon, is a 2D rogue-lite side scroller. We at Myrkur Software believe that networking, be it with enthusiasts or experienced experts, is one of the best ways to grow and improve as a gaming company.
The Myrkur team would like to thank everyone who we met at Slush Play for their participation and interesting conversations. We hope to see everyone (readers included) at Slush Play 2017.
