Avesoft got its start in the fall of 1988 when Jyrki Kummola presented his idea about a game named Remember Archadica to Kimmo Kujansuu. Both had visions of a Finnish game company and together they established Avesoft Finlandia Ltd. They funded the upkeep of the company by selling PD disks so that they could eventually concentrate on publishing games. The most well known of Avesoft games is Coloris, which was developed by Signum Victoriae group. It got rated well by, for example, Jukka Tapanimäki in MikroBitti magazine. The final game published by Avesoft was Metallic Nations, which came out in 1995.
