About me – Rainware indie development

Rainware – An one man indie Game Developer studio. Founded and driven by myself, Thorben Rackow, from Stade (Germany). I develop and publish PC – Games as well as games for smartphones and tablets. To achieve this I use programming languages such as C# and Java used in Unity3d and libGDX.


“Since I got my first PC I really enjoyed games. My absolute favorite game is Starcraft: Broodwar / Starcraft2.”

I am a professional software developer since 2007. My career started at the game publisher and creator Innogames GmbH as a trainee. I had the opportunity to get a good insight in very many different departments and was able to generate a good knowledge about the gaming industry. At the moment I try to manage all by myself this means I am the developer, game designer, level designer and marketing manager. For graphic and sound assets I have some external help.

Since 2017 I rent an office at the GiS-Stade. This is a building especially for startups. Here I spent my time and develop the next game ideas.

There is always enough food and drinks!
