Trivia Edit

  • In 2012 before Playtonic Games was formed, Ex-Rare members tried to get back together once already. However, everyone was working on other projects, and ultimately failed in the end.[3]
  • Playtonic is a play on the words Platonic, meaning "intimate and affectionate but not sexual," and Play, referring to the fact they are video game producers.
