Description

DeadToast Entertainment is the sole effort of Victor Agren and is used as a brand for him to release his video games through. DeadToast Entertainment is not bound to any particular genre or platform and put a high value on creative freedom.

History

Where it all started

DeadToast Entertainment began back in 2006, when Victor Agren needed a label to release his experimental Flash games under. As time went on DeadToast Entertainment released several quirky and unusual titles and managed to establish itself more and more. Victor quickly realized he could actually get paid to make video games, and there was nothing that could hold him back from pursuing his dreams. But it wasn't until after having worked for Media Molecule (on LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2 and Tearaway), between 2007 and 2013, DeadToast Entertainment would be intended as a full time business.

Going indie, lone-wolfing it

The transition from full time employee to being full time indie was scary but super exciting! And to make things even more exciting Victor decided to leave England (where he'd been living during his time with Media Molecule) and move to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A new place and a new lifestyle. During his time in Brazil he picked up his indie endeavors where he had left them and started working on 'Nunchuck Charlie: A Love Story', a free Flash-game sponsored by Adult Swim Games. The game was very well received by those who played it, but it turned out to have a slight niche appeal.

Things kicking off

After the release of 'Nunchuck Charlie: A Love Story' Victor decided to carry on the development of a promising game he had abandoned back in around 2007. This game ended up being "My Friend Pedro", a side-scrolling acrobatic platforming shooter lead by Pedro the banana, with heavy influences from games like Max Payne and films like The Matrix. Upon release it quickly became apparent that there was something people appreciated with the game. Now, with the game being hosted on over 1 300 websites with a combined total of over 10 000 000 plays, it makes sense to turn 'My Friend Pedro' in to a polished full title. So after having moved back to his home country, Sweden, Victor started working on 'My Friend Pedro: Blood Bullets Bananas'. The development is funded by savings, cheap living and the occasional freelancing work.
