Spellfoce III was decent after the thirty patches. It even has a new expansion almost ready for release, but yeah they don't fund a lot of good games.

Lets see these are the various developers under their umbrella.

Black Forest Games
Bugbear Entertainment
Coffee Stain Holding
Experiment 101
Foxglove Studios
Grimlore Games
HandyGames
Koch Media
Mirage Game Studios
Pieces Interactive
Rainbow Studios
