Trivia

Cancelled Port

A SEGA 32X port was going to be released, but got cancelled due to the platform's declining popularity.

Sales

Rayman has the record for number of weeks on the UK all-formats top 40 chart with 261 weeks. That's more than five years.

Technology

  • Rayman has no joints, he just has a head, body, hands and feet. The reason for this is that it was much easier to animate him that way.
  • The DOS and Windows versions stored the opening and ending animations in a very unusual format: the video is completely separate from the audio. The audio for the animations is on the CD as CD Audio tracks. So in order to watch the intro and ending, a full install of the game is necessary, since a CD-ROM drive can not access data and audio tracks at the same time.
