Independent game developers - making Avoyd

ECTS 2001

Doug Binks - 06 Sep 2001 - edited 30 Oct 2013


[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.]

Last night I got back from ECTS, travelling from a sunny London morning to a dark and rainy Manchester afternoon. It's good to be back :)

ECTS was exciting, though strangely quieter than previous years. The developers lounge turned out to be a great place to bump into people, and to relax for a few minutes whilst playing Avoyd. A big hello to all I saw there!

My work table is now full of information and contacts which should all help to take Avoyd further down the path to success. Wish us luck, and don't stop playing!
