[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.]
You get to keep one, and I'll try and keep the other.
Avoyd is now available for purchase, somewhat later than I outlined in the previous post. The game was ready to go 'online' at the start of June, but fate dealt me a a small blow by taking out my internet connection for about a week. That was long enough to take some time to reassess the schedule, and it was decided to postpone the launch to add two features. These were on the map to be included in the next version, but for a variety of reasons we moved them forward. Avoyd is much better for their inclusion.
With Avoyd available to buy, instead of sitting back and putting my feet up I'm busy going over the plans for Avoyd's future and getting ready to implement them. We'll be updating Avoyd with new features and content, which we'll be making available on the Avoyd member pages, which you have to buy Avoyd to get access to.
Of course, we'll also be updating the demo, though as a demo it will only include a subset of the features of the full version.
The promise? That this column is going to be updated regularly. Wish me luck!
