Vienna, Austria: 16
th
August 2011: Nordic Games GmbH, part of the Nordic Games Holding AB group announces the acquisition of the JoWooD and The Adventure Company brands, products and selected subsidiaries.

JoWooD and The Adventure Company will become publishing labels within Nordic Games GmbH,with the plan to re-launch the huge back catalogue of games and invest in developing the wholly owned IP’s and franchises, including SpellForce, Painkiller, ArcaniA, The Guild, Panzer Elite, Legend of Kay, The Nations, Safecracker, and Neighbours From Hell, amongst others.

Nordic Games GmbH has recently opened its new office in Vienna, Austria. The team members have been carefully selected for their enthusiasm and desire to make a successful publishing company, and their care and attention to the former JoWooD Entertainment AG brands and products.

Nordic Games GmbH CEO, Lars Wingefors said: “This new venture will be a fresh start, and we will be introducing new systems, procedures and business ethics to ensure the company goes from strength to strength.”

Wingefors continued: “This is the beginning of a new era and over the coming months product development will start on a variety of well loved and respected brands and products.”
Klemens Kreuzer, General Manager added: “We have a great range of back catalogue that will keep our team busy in these early days.”



The new label will launch soon a new Website.

bravo
