About Black Forest Games

Who we are

Founded in 2012 and located in Offenburg, Germany, we are a team of about 60 highly experienced international professionals who have a passion and drive for developing video games. Our studio was formed as a successor to the dissolved Spellbound Entertainment, and we worked primarily as an independent game developer until only recently. As a result, much of our team has been working together in game development for more than 20 years.

Over our years of experience, we have specialized in developing high-quality games across varying genres and platforms. Some of our older titles from the Spellbound era include Airline Tycoon, Desperados, and Arcania – Gothic 4. Our most popular recent titles include new and innovative platformers such as Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Rogue Stormers, and Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. We are also excited about our newest project, Fade To Silence, which is an original survival-horror game set in a stunning open-world setting.

Since our acquisition by THQ Nordic in August 2017, we plan to continue developing original games that emphasize high visual quality, engaging gameplay, and technical excellence. We further plan to foster prosperous relationships with THQ Nordic and with our game communities, while continuing to grow and fulfill our vision of becoming one of the top developers in the industry.
