Myrkur Games

Daníel Arnar

An endless source of creative energy

     As one of the three founders of Myrkur Games, Daníel has been an integral part of shaping the company from the very start. Daníel remains a key vision holder for the company and brings the team a fantastic talent in software design and system architecture, while serving a secondary role as technical artist and rigger.

     Daníel brings to the team a friendly attitude, and will surprise most with his unique creativity. With a genuine spirit and good humor, he’s quick to make friends and his smile is usually only one joke away. Daníel was also the one to start the convention of recording Myrkur’s celebrated “noteworthy” quotes (loosely translates to hilarious and/or less intelligent things we say during development) on post-it notes and sticking them on the wall. This convention still stands strong, and very much reflects Daníel’s light-hearted personality.

     As with his work, Daníel excels at almost anything he sets his mind to. It may come as no surprise then, that as someone who loves solving the most complex problems, Daníel immediately excels at almost any game he sets his mind to. Like the rest of Myrkur, he is also an also an avid D&D player and board-game lover!

     Daníel’s favorite games include World of Warcraft, League of Legends, EVE Online and Mount&Blade.

“When we founded Myrkur, the startup life was quick to sweep me off my feet. I would never have guessed this would be the course of my life, but now I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

“I’ve been a favourite test subject for photogrammetry and facial capture for a while now. It was flattering at first, until I was told it was because of my ‘flat, featureless face’.”

“When life is work and work is life, it’s vital to find time for other things. And when that work involves sitting at a desk for upwards of eight hours a day, exercise and activity is a matter of life and death.”
