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!

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 participated in the PopUp&Pitch event held by Startup Reykjavík at their headquarters in Borgartún. The event was managed by Nathan Gold, also known as The Demo Coach. Nathan is from the San Francisco Bay Area where he spends his days coaching and training people all around the world on how to prepare for high-stakes presentations.
Nathan held a fantastic presentation and the event was a great success.
Startup Reykjavik is an intensive 10-week program run every summer in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Myrkur team is incredibly excited to announce their participation in this prestigious accelerator which provides the team with a unique opportunity to work with talented mentors, entrepreneurs and advisors who can help with the growth and development of Myrkur and its upcoming game.
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.
