JoWooD Entertainment AG (formerly JoWooD Productions Software AG; commonly referred to as JoWooD) was an Austrian video game publisher founded in 1995 and traded until 2011 when they filed for bankruptcy and later had its assets acquired by Nordic Games.
Many of their PC games are poorly made and most of the time refuse to run.
Their buyout of DreamCatcher Interactive, and then a very bad move to the North American market.
They treated their developers poorly, like Piranha Bytes (who parted ways with JoWooD after they forced them to rush Gothic 3) and Perception, in which JoWooD claimed they owned the game rights to the Stargate SG-1 franchise, and not Perception.
The company only really cared about making money instead of releasing quality products, which might have led to their bankruptcy.
