Rainbow Arts was a German video game developer founded in 1984 in Gütersloh by Marc Ulrich which was later bought by Funsoft, and eventually absorbed by THQ in 1999. In the early 1990s most of the company's creative developers left to start their own development studios, such as Thomas Hertzler, who is now Managing Director of Blue-Byte, and Armin Gessert, who founded Spellbound Entertainment. Rainbow Arts arose from a split of a former software company, micro-partner, founded by Marc Ullrich, Thomas Meiertoberens and Rolf Lakaemper. Parallel to Ullrich creating RainbowArts, Meiertoberens/Lakaemper founded Magic Bytes, a game software company, also located in Gütersloh, NRW, Germany. Rainbow Arts and Magic Bytes can be seen as the first commercial German game software companies.

  • La Rainbow Arts era una società tedesca di sviluppo di videogiochi. Fu fondata nel 1984 da Marc Urlich nella città di Gütersloh. In seguito fu acquistata dalla compagnia Funsoft ed a sua volta, nel 1999, assorbita dalla THQ. Fu leader nello sviluppo di giochi per Commodore 64 e Amiga. I maggiori successi furono la saga di Turrican, M.U.D.S. e R-Type.Fra i suoi sviluppatori si ricorda soprattutto: Manfred Trenz, Chris Hülsbeck, Andreas Escher, Thomas Hertzler e Armin Gessert. La Rainbow Arts è tristemente famosa per le causa di plagio perse, la prima contro Nintendo per Super Mario Bros contro il loro The Great Giana Sisters e poi contro la Irem per R-Type contro Katakis.
