Celestial is a South African game development studio. Formed in 1994. We successfully
published 2 PC titles and then took a little break. Recently re-
We struggled on for a year or so more looking for creative ways to fund ourselves and make games from South Africa.
Some time in 2001 we closed shop. We realised that the time was not right for us and we had to call it a day .. For now.
While we worked steadily on The Tainted some internal changes were happening within EA. Bullfrog was closed down and the Europe branch was no longer producing games all production was moved to the US. With this we had to leave working closely with EA locally and work alone.
Funds were short and we had taken on something too big, production of The Tainted was marred with obstacles. We managed to finish much later then we had originally planned.
We sold The Tainted only in South Africa. Doing a few thousand units, We never managed to get an international deal for the game.
