They have some decent properties, but much more work than money (like the nice adventure game Keepsake).
Theoretically speaking it´s a good idea to get access to TAC´s line-up because Germany is the world´s most important adventure market. These games are sold in decent numbers for full price. But practically you need a lot of creativity and know-how to market adventures. Only DTP / Anaconda has proven time and again that they can market adventures successfully. JoWooD is traditionally weak when it comes to smaller games. Furthermore - and that´s an important point - TAC often only has the North American rights. The lucrative German rights are with DTP, CDV, Flashpoint or Deep Silver.
