Based out of Germany, Rainbow Arts was founded in 1984 by Marc Ullrich and Thomas Meiertoberens.

Most of the company's titles were launched on the Commodore 64 and the Commodore Amiga consoles.

"Rainbow Arts was a premiere and iconic European video game publisher of the '80s and '90s," said Ziggurat Interactive svp of business development Michael Devine.

"Each game released during that time frame - mainly made for the C64, Amiga, and PC - evokes memories of 16-bit wonders, colorful graphics, and playful challenges the moment you see the rainbow logo appear. We can't wait to revitalize these games and share them with today's classic gaming fans."
