Sólfar Studios is founded by three industry veterans that have been working on the cutting edge of online worlds, games and virtual reality for over 20 years. Before founding Sólfar, the co-founders held leadership positions at Icelandic MMO developer and publisher CCP Games. Reynir Hardarson co-founded CCP in 1997 and was their Global Creative Director; Kjartan Pierre Emilsson built CCP´s Shanghai studio and was the Lead Game Designer on the original team behind EVE Online; and Thor Gunnarsson was most recently VP Business Development at CCP and previously a VP and General Manager at BAFTA award-winning mobile games studio Ideaworks3D.
