Nordic Games today announced the acquisition of the DreamCatcher portfolio. Nordic Games previously acquired JoWood and The Adventure Company labels and plans on re-launching and expanding on the IP.

"Basic business operations will be handled from Vienna, Austria, whereas Nordic Games is currently in negotiations with North American companies regarding the distribution and marketing of products.

Since their first launch back in 1996, DreamCatcher Interactive quietly turned into a very successful small-sized publishers in the industry. Based in Ontario, Canada, the company started as a publisher with a portfolio exclusively for PC adventure games. Over the next 10 years, DreamCatcher experienced rapid growth and became a major publisher as well as distributor. The company diversified into new platforms and genres and, in 2002, established the publishing label The Adventure Company to handle their adventure titles and strengthen its core competence. In March 2007, both DreamCatcher and The Adventure Company became part of the JoWooD Group as publishing labels. Following JoWooD’s insolvency in early 2011, DreamCatcher experienced a similar development and filed for bankruptcy shortly after its former parent company."
