Myrkur Games with Aldin Dynamics at Game Makers Iceland
Thank you all who came out to see us and Aldin Dynamics at the Game Makers Iceland event on September 19th! We were blown away by the turn-out and we hope that we will see you all at our upcoming events. Massive thanks to Game Makers Iceland for hosting us!
The event summary from Game Makers Iceland:
Halldór S. Kristjánsson, CEO & Co-Founder of Myrkur Games will discuss the production of their upcoming video game series, The Darken, and the challenges of starting a game company.
Myrkur Games is an Icelandic based developer working on an original story-driven fantasy adventure game series. In order to compete with the industry leaders with this highly ambitious project, they’ve adapted the latest technological advances from fields such as photogrammetry and motion capture to suit a small team of under 20 people.
In the Darken, players take the role of Ryn, a Syrouvian warrior, as she is faced with betrayal, conflict and danger in her efforts to serve her queen. Players guide Ryn on her journey as she’s cast adrift from all she knows, and must make challenging decisions that shape the story of not just the first game, but the rest of the series as well.
