Misc Games is a game developer based in Stavanger, Norway. We aims at developing unique games for various niche markets to drive the industry forward.



Our History So Far


Our mobilegame Oil Drill was released 30 November 2013 and this game received quite a lot of attention when it was published on and was ranked as one of the top 5 best games released in 2013 in the Arcade genre. During 2014 we release a few other small mobile games. Since then we have been evolving from 2D games to making 3D games using Unreal Engine 4 by Epic Games.

We have since June 2013 been developing our commercial fishing simulator called Fishing: Barents Sea, that was released February 7th, 2018 for PC/Steam. On December 13th 2019 we also launched Fishing: Barents Sea on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

16th October 2020 Fishing: North Atlantic was released, our sequel to Fishing: Barents Sea on PC/Steam/GoG. 30th of June 2021 we also released Fishing: North Atlantic on on XBox One and Playstation 4 and 24th of November 2021 our Enhanced Edition was released on Playstation 5 and XBox Seriex X/S.



Misc Games was founded by Goran Myrland in June 2013 and established as a stock company in 2015. In October 2019, we partnered up with Amplifier Game Invest AB and Embracer Group.

We are today part of a larger group of professional game developers in the nordics. We are working fulltime with 11 passionate and experienced team members, that can bring frutation to any game we put our efforts into.
