It seems to be a European publisher.

Edit: Of kids games.

Is "dwarf" a bad word in the EU?

I don't know, but it looks like several of the "Clever Boys" have beards. That's rather curious, I must say.

Looks Chinese to me. Lots of bull**** like this pervades the world, and shops with pirated stuff.

I've seen Midtown Madness 3 for PC, Office 2008 for Vista and Windows Vista Extreme Edition, to name a few.

Why they're the greatest games ever developed in human history...

Right, they're monstrosities that even the dumbest parents could probably avoid.

Phoenix Games Ahead of it's Time

With a small elite team of 6 people specializing in licensing, marketing and publishing of value priced games, development and manufacturing are bundled through outsourcing and collaboration. This approach suppresses our fixed costs and enables a revolutionary low price strategy.

We boast the shortest time required from development to product release in the industry. Ordinarily the average development period for a game is 18 months, whereas Phoenix need a mere 3-5 months. With integrated standards in production and packaging it is now possible to realize low costs through stabilization of variable costs and suppression of fixed costs. In the case of fixed costs we are suppressing development costs per product unit by maximizing the sales volume through a low cost strategy and also both diminishing advertising and promotional costs and maximizing operating profits by securing a dependable fan base through an identifying packaging of a series.

I'd hate to get through a long and painful education and learning process to become a game-developer, only to end up with these guys.

Disney movies are based on fairy tales so, therefore, these games could be based on those same fairy tales.

I get the feeling I know how they have such a short development cycle.

1) Throw dart at dart board with various names of fairy tales on it.
2) Trace artwork.
3) Copy new art files over old art files.
4) ?????
5) PROFIT!

I don't think they would even do the "trace artwork" part. Its more like "recolor the badly created stock character with different colors"

COnsider this, once upon a time some russian developer did the Zelda series... and we all remember the damage done, or the lulz it created along with the Epic Fail.

Seems like the same thing is still happening.

Slalom.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slalom_skiingBut even then, slalom and downhill are two different sports. Calling a game 'Downhill slalom' is like calling it 'American Football soccer'. Heh, maybe that's their next title.

Countryside bears:rofl:
...the ****?
And what the **** are Kangaroos doing in a game about countryside bears?

OMG, u, liek, have to check out the 1337 flash animation on there site, d00dz!1
I loved how it said 'Skip Intro' after the Flash animation had finished playing:D.

This one's the best by far, though:

Is the Lion King one supposed to look pornographic, or it just me?

All those games secretly have porn included. Now you know why Snow White and the 7 Clever Boys is called like that. :p
