When we formed Celestial Games in 1994 we decided to make two games. Toxic Bunny and Arni the mental Armadillo. We quickly realized that two games was far too ambitious and focused on the better idea. Toxic Bunny.
For the next year and a half we worked part time. Scrounging weekends and evenings where we could progress with the game.
We didn’t have a deadline just a goal. In fact at the time we were following the guidance of build it and they will come and in 1996 they did.
The ‘they’ in question were in fact Vision Software at the time.
A local games distributor. In fact the largest at the time. They bought into the idea of Toxic Bunny and funded the last 6 months of development. Moving from part time to full time made a great difference.
We drank most of their coffee, hid away in a dark room for 6 months and emerged thirsty, hungry and holding a CD triumphantly in our hands.
