Bavisoft created two highly atmospheric, if somewhat repetitive games Grizzly Gulch and Chillingham, in the early 2000s.
Both of Bavisoft's titles were distributed commercially, and only via cd-rom. In the late 2000s, the company appeared to vanish completely. Contact requests were ignored, customers did not receive purchased products, and the company's website vanished from the internet. The last related news was in 2013, when, due to a compliance complaint filed with ICANN, their website was removed from the internet for failure to respond to contact requests.
As of December 2019, the bavisoft.com domain has reverted to a for-sale parking page. Interested parties may be able to gather more up-to-date information by performing a whois search.
Because of the unknown legal status of Bavisoft's titles, the archive does not offer them for download. If this status should change in the future, we will update this information.
A few reviews were made for the Bavisoft games. You can download them, as well as an update patch for Grizzly Gulch, below.
These reviews were made by Kelly Sapergia and Brian Hartgen. Kelly's reviews were featured on Main Menu, the American Council of the Blind's technology show, and Brian's review was created for the Infotech magazine. These are all the reviews that were previously hosted on bavisoft.com.
This is a patch for Grizzly Gulch that fixes an issue where the game would hang during action sequences on some systems. Note that this patch requires Grizzly Gulch to be installed, and will not apply if it isn't.
