[This is an archive post about the first version of Avoyd which we now call Avoyd 1999. The full game is now free to download.]
As some may have noticed, things on this site have been rather quiet for the last month. You'll be glad to know that I've been hard at work preparing the next release, which is going to contain a host of new features.
Some of these features, like loading, saving and generating new worlds, will only be available in the full version which we'll have available for purchase from this site when we come to release. Other features, like the explosions I'm working on at the moment, will be available in the demo as well as the full version.
Programming explosions is fun, as the effect of the new code can be seen immediately. I could happily spend all my time programming visual effects like these, but it's important to pay attention to other parts of the game - such as updating this column!
