HistoryEdit

File:RobertStaintonTestinganArcademachine.png

In 1992, Greenytoons founder, Robert Stainton was testing out some arcade games he bought from "a Chuck E. Cheese's knockoff's liquidation sale", until one day, he found a Dragon's Lair cabinet with a Laserdisc drive in the back. He decided to go to work. He then told the entire staff that he wanted to plan out an arcade system, codenamed at first, "Arcadia".

Development of the console started in May 1992. The Greeny Arcade was suppose to look like a real arcade system, but it may take the developers a lot of time on the project. This would later be used to it's successor, Greeny Arcade 256, except the color of it was green. In Late 1992, Codename Arcadia was given a name. A name that feels like it's GreenyWorld Studios-related. The name was chosen, as Greeny Arcade.

The bent arcade screen took the longest development, which took 4 months to complete it. It took 1 year and 2 months to complete the prototype.

In 1993, The prototype was revealed at the 1993 Summer CES near the Greenytoons Studios of GreenyWorld Studios. The prototype of the cabinet had a few glitches with very early builds of the games that it could play. The prototype looked a lot like the final version of the Greeny Arcade. The cabinet was fixed in August 1993 and the console was finished in September 1993 using Windows 95 OS.

The only thing the crew forgot to add was launch titles. The first game to start production for the Greeny Arcade was Guns n' Blossom, which started production after the prototype was finished. sold 8 million units during its first few weeks.
