After the development of Giana Sisters DS in 2009, Spellbound Entertainment went bankrupt. Soon after the disruption of the company, Black Forest Games was founded by the key-members and management from Spellbound. The newly established game developer decided to move on their own and took over all Spellbound assets, including the IPs. In total, 40 of the former Spellbound team of 65 members followed and became part of Black Forest Games. Black Forest Games was formed to develop a wide arrange of games, including action role playing and strategy games for Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
