Press kit for Windows Desktop game Avoyd, enkisoftware's current project
Game developed & published
Avoyd is an abstract six degrees of freedom First Person Shooter voxel game. The editable terrain is made of constrained morphing voxels. It is a long-term project which we continuously develop and evolve over time.
We release new versions of Avoyd regularly, increasing the price as we add functionality. The prototype is currently available to download freely and purchase from our home page. Development is in progress.
The original Avoyd was a shareware-style game we created and self-published back in 1999-2003. To our knowledge, it was the first game in which the players could build and destroy the entire environment. Since September 2012, after many years thinking about Avoyd, we started working on it again. The new Avoyd game is powered by the in-house engine Doug is writing.
On the 1st Feb 2017 we stealth released the first Avoyd Editor prototype. The voxel editor enables players to create and edit environments. They can import Minecraft and MagicaVoxel .vox files both as levels and as brushes. We've also included basic procedurally generated shapes.
In March 2018 we released the Movement prototype, shifting our priority to gameplay.

"... I’m in love with Avoyd’s structures, because they’re just so evocative, large, powerful, and alive with geometric details."
