Forge of Empires developer Innogames announced today that the Funatics Software GmbH team has been added to the company ranks. The team — including the managing members — will be incorporated into three office locations, with the Funatics founders taking up key positions in the company.

Funatics’ founder Thomas Friedmann will become part of the management team as the Studio Director in Dusseldorf and head up several mobile titles. Thomas Hauser will take on the roll of Game Head and Thorsten Kneisel will become Team Lead Art.

The rest of the company will be integrated over a period of time.

QuintLyn is a long-time lover of all things video game related will happily talk about them to anyone that will listen. She began writing about games for various hobby sites a little over ten years ago and has taken on various roles in the games community. For the past five years she's been a writer at Gamebreaker TV.


  1. Innogames may create some fun games but their customer service is absolutely terrible. For starters, they let their players also be moderators, allowing for a serious conflict of interest. Keep in mind that they also support all decisions made by these moderators, which include decisions to ban other players, from not only the forums, but the game as well. They say you can escalate any issues beyond the moderators but its not clearly defined at all. In fact, the most obvious link to try to do this only sends you to the “Community Manager”, which is just the highest level moderator. In my own case, when dealing with them they even decided to promote the moderator who mistreated me and even broke their own rules, he is now a “Co-Community Manager”.

    I would suggest that if you play any of their games be sure to remain a free-player and don’t bother trying to report any issues to them. At least, if you do, don’t get any hopes up of getting any kind of good customer service!
