Moonbyte had started development of Crashday in 1997 as a hobby, with the actual development taking off in 1998/99. The concept and game design was created by Robert Clemens and Jan Bodenstein, while the project was mainly lead by the former. Later, the company started hiring people for the development of Crashday on a larger scale, eventually co-operating with Replay Studios and finally completing development and releasing Crashday in 2006.
