Enkisoftware is an independent game development company co-founded by Doug Binks, Juliette Foucaut and Andy Binks. We make the game Avoyd.
In 1999 Doug and Juliette started working on a shareware-style game called Avoyd. A six degrees of freedom first-person shooter set in zero gravity, gamers could play deathmatches against bots or other people on a LAN. To our knowledge, it was the first game in which the players could build and destroy the entire environment.
In 2000 we founded enkisoftware and started selling digital copies of the game over the internet for a few pounds, steadily increasing the price as we added more features. After Doug joined a games development company, we slowly stopped development and released the last version, Avoyd 1.7.1, in 2003. At that stage, many features and designs we had in mind had yet to be implemented in the game.
For more information, see the Avoyd 1999 press kit.
In September 2012, we started rewriting Avoyd from scratch. As before, we design the game together. Doug writes the engine and does all the programming whilst Juliette does the testing and the website.
On the 1st Feb 2017 we stealth released the Avoyd Editor prototype. From now on we'll be releasing new versions of Avoyd periodically, increasing the price as we add functionality. The prototype is currently available to download freely. Development is in progress.
