Kjartan has been part of the gaming industry in Iceland for as long as I can remember. He spoke in the first ever Startup Iceland in 2012 about CCP Games. Kjartan and six other co-founders, veteran developers from Iceland and Finland, came together to form Mainframe Games. They are creating a cloud-native Massive Multiplayer Online Game, a vibrant world with new ways to engage and connect with our friends. It’s the game of a lifetime. We talk about his PhD in Chaos Physics, his passion for art (he is a very good artist) and advice for founders.
