As for games originating from Pegasus, the publisher does have a few such titles:

Mondo, from Michael Schacht – for more on this game, check out Schacht's Mondo designer diary here on BGG News. (Mar. 2011)
Duckomenta Memo – a basic memory game featuring artwork from the "Die Duckomenta" exhibit at Roemer- und Pelizaeus-Museum in Hildesheim, Germany. If you've ever wondered what Raphael's "Sistine Madonna" would look like with ducks for angels, now's your chance. (Mar. 2011)
Quest: Zeit der Helden – Der dunkle Kult, from Alexander Dotor. This is the first large expansion for Quest: Zeit der Helden – Angriff der Orks, a Descent-style game with the Questmaster facing off against heroes controlled by the other players, which debuted in 2010 and is forthcoming from Z-Man Games. Four new heroes are introduced in this expansion, along with (to be fair) four demonic arch-villains. (Mar. 2011)
Strasbourg, from Stefan Feld. In this "easy to learn" strategy game, players try to place family members in the powerful craft guilds of 15th century Strasbourg, using their influence to win them positions as apprentices, journeymen or even masters. All it takes is money, money and influence – money, influence and the ability to woo the nobility and fend off the church, all in a quest to end up with a better reputation than everyone else. (Apr. 2011)
