Myrkur Receives Fræ, a Seed Grant from Rannsóknamiðstöð Íslands

Myrkur is very proud to be the recipient of Fræ, a seed grant from the Technological Development Fund managed by Rannsóknarmiðstöð Íslands. Myrkur applied for Fræ early 2017, to help fund the development of a prototype for Myrkur’s upcoming fantasy title.

Developing a prototype is an essential of game development, as it serves to help make better design decisions early that resonate throughout the development of the game.

The team at Myrkur is incredibly humbled by the support that Rannsóknarmiðstöð Íslands, or Rannís, is providing us with.
