Previous Game Releases

Celestial Games was one of the first companies in Africa to develop and publish computer games. Formed in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1994, we successfully produced two PC titles (Toxic Bunny and The Tainted) and then took a little break. We reopened with an HD re-release of Toxic Bunny and have been building our skills and momentum since then.

Rated as one of the top game companies in Africa, Celestial now focuses on the eSports industry, including our current main development project, BAD (Battle Arena Drones). We work with partners to drive the industry up into Africa, as well as with SA government to stimulate and grow the local gaming industry. Recently we also partnered with a top TV production company to produce content in the digital entertainment space.
