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!
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.
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.
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.
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. We also provide a hands-on educational demonstration of virtual reality devices for students and other interested parties, where we share our expertise and experience developing for and working with VR.
Myrkur was recently interviewed for the yearly release of Reykjavík University magazine. Missing from the interview are the fantastic new additions to the team: Katrín, Eydís and Eiríkur – who had not been publicly announced at the time. Myrkur’s origins trace right back to Reykjavík University, where the founders first met when studying game design and development. Myrkur has an active collaboration with both CADIA and Reykjavík University. Myrkur will, in addition, be hosting student final projects in the spring semester of 2018.
Myrkur recently participated and won Top 10 in Gulleggið, a renowned business plan and innovation competition. This is the 11th time Gulleggið was held and this year over 82 ideas applied to the competition. The goal of Gulleggið is for entrepreneurs to get their business ideas noticed. The competition is held by Icelandic Startups and is endorsed and actively supported by some of the biggest companies in Iceland today.
Myrkur is currently coming out of the pre-production phase and things are looking bright as we have some fantastic new additions to the team. We are now transitioning into full-blown production, and as we do so, we’ll be starting a weekly YouTube vlog (video log)! In the the vlog we are going to share each and every step of the journey we are about to embark on. We hope to offer a unique new view of game development as we share our thoughts, ideas, happy moments and stressful all-nighters. We invite you, and everyone else, to follow along, engage in the conversation and be part of the creation from square one.
