Founded in Reykjavík, Iceland in October 2014 by three game industry veterans, our mission is to create and publish pure VR games that thrill players, define the medium, and establish Sólfar as the category leader in virtual reality entertainment.
We are currently developing multiple projects across all major VR platforms, including PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

He eventually moved back to Iceland to take the role of Principal Game Designer and work on Dust 514 and EVE Universe.
