Our History

Early Years

From a as young as eight years old, Kirt Goodfellow fell in love with videogames. Using this love and passion, Kirt would build paper prototypes and simple projects using Microsoft PowerPoint, with a dream to one day pursue a career in the industry. During his time at College studying Game Design, Kirt coined the name “Kenomica” as an online handle, using the ‘K’ of his name and experimenting with various phonetics. This name eventually became a banner for his hobby work, developing mods for various titles (such as the popular Skyrim mod, Resilient Dragons), making 3D art and prototypes in his spare time.

Kirt made a name for himself as a stand-out 3D artist through numerous group projects while studying Computer Game Production at university. After graduating, Kirt received requests for his art services, resulting in work on various art commissions and projects with his university colleagues. During his spare time, Kirt began to develop a videogame specifically for his son to play and enjoy.

The Formation of Kenomica Productions

With the growth of his hobby project, Kirt saw the potential in his work and wanted to make things official. He approached his partner, Kirsty Downes, with this idea, and they spent many long nights in serious conversation, considering the viability of turning a name into a business.

On the 25th of January 2017, with Kirt as Creative and Managing Director; Kenomica Productions Ltd was officially born.

Beyond...

July 2018 saw Kirsty join the team as Media and Marketing Manager, expanding the number of employees. In January 2020 she became Media & Management Director, working alongside Kirt and taking on more managerial roles, creating a true business partnership.
