Blast from the past!
Mats had an eventful birthday party in 2011 at Yum Yums. We won’t say anymore about that!
We traveled with Aegir Games to Spiel 2013 in Essen to show their upcoming board game Battle of France. The game was well received and we also play tested some other cool games from some fellow Norwegian game designers.
Time to introduce you to one of our affiliated companies, Bifrost Entertainment. The company was founded in October 2011 by Kalli Karlsson, Tommy Nguyen, Marius Stensland, Erlend Grefsrud, and Anna Karlsdottir. They started with one idea, and they stuck at it and it developed into a mixture between a children’s book, a game and an app. This winning combination of elements became Maja and the Magical Mirror.
'Maja og Det Magiske Speilet'
The story of Maja is told in animation, with narration and music. The objective is to joke and sneak through the gameplay/mini-games following all the fun of Maja and her pet cat. The book is recommended for kids between the ages of 4-8. They can read and play through the book by themselves or with the help of their parents or anyone else!
Maja was nominated to “Childrens App of the year” in Gulltasten 2012, the the app has achieved great success and the English version is also gathering speed! Maja is available for iPhone and iPad.
Bifrost and Hava
Bifrost became involved with Hava Media in 2012 through a mutual interest in innovative apps and gameplay. We are working together on developing further projects developing these themes.
Per Christian Fjeldvik - CFO
A city boy from Oslo, when he’s not balancing our accounts and grappling with the budget, theres nothing he loves more than jetting off around the world. If you are looking for the Hava Media party animal then you found him!
However, he works as hard as he parties, taking care of market surveillance, monitoring investments and keeping a sharp eye on the company finances.

We were all told to turn up at the airport with our passports and none of us had a clue where we were off to. Then it was revealed we were off on a weekend trip to Lithuania! We spent the weekend looking around the city, sampling the local cuisine and we visited the KGB museum. It was awesome.
Somehow Ina managed to cook a full thanksgiving dinner for the whole Hava Media team and some of our affiliates! What an absolute star!
Blast from the past!
A quick picture of some of the team on Påls boat. After starting work on the Mibo project together, Pål was kind enough to take us all out on the Oslo Fjord and we drank a lot of beer and went swimming and waterskiing.
Cathlin Sentz - Newsboiler Network & Community Manager
You can find Cat in the US department of Hava Media. She works very hard to manage the moderators and admins of the various Hava Media sites and organises contests and prizes for site members.
Cat’s a pretty awesome gamer and she’s also really into horseback riding and F1. She’s also a fantastic cook, but she lives too far away for the rest of the team to take advantage of that talent!

Vegard Aure - CEO
Vegard co founded Hava Media with his brother in 2005. He is the business minded one in the team, and manages advertisers and business partners for all Hava properties.
Vegard is very passionate about all of products we make and oversees the development of new projects. When he’s not hooked into the latest video game, he is well into kite surfing, skiing, and he’ll chat with you all day about cosmology!

Have you heard of the tv show 71° North? Well, its an extreme sports show that started right here in Norway. We are very excited that our very own Alexander Cardo (who helps with our Newsboiler football site 11x2) is a contestant in this series of the show!
We had a film crew from TV Norge come to the office and poke around at our daily activities a few weeks ago and that was quite fun!
Watch Alex on the show in the season premiere on Monday 2nd of September, TV Norge.
