Overview edit · view history

Rainbow Arts was a game publisher and developer founded in 1984 in Gütersloh, Germany.

Early in the 80's they gathered many people from all over Germany, like Armin Gessert (founder of the company Spellbound), Thomas Hertzler (of Blue Byte), Chris Huelsbeck, Manfred Trenz, and others.

All their games from that time were mainly made for the C64 and the Amiga and only very few were converted to the IBM-PC later on.

Early in the 90's most of Rainbow Arts people went on to work somewhere else or to form their own independent companies (Blue Byte, Factor 5). Rainbow Arts became part of Softgold/Funsoft and are now part of THQ, as Funsoft itself was bought by THQ in 1999.

Credited on 72 Games from 1985 to 1997
