Metal Max was primarily developed by Crea-Tech and published by Data East, but due to Data East's bankruptcy issues in the early 2000s, they ended up releasing two games (PS2 and DS) under the Metal Saga name. Once all of the financial issues were sorted out, they got the Metal Max name back for the third game on the DS.
Zanac became Aleste because Pony Canyon owned the Zanac name and Compile wanted to make a sequel.

Fallout > Arcanum: of Steamworks and Magic Obscura Maniac Mansion > Thimbleweed Park Spirit of Adventure > Realms of Arkania Bloodwych > Hexx: Heresy of the Wizard (elaboration: the latter is a remake of the former under a different publisher)

I work two blocks away from Starbreeze HQ in Stockholm and I regularly see people wearing Starbreeze hoodies (and also Overkill hoodies). So I think they’re alive and reasonably well.
But as far as I know they haven't made a game in years and all the "real" talent went on to form Machinegames, right?
A name is a name, the actual people that make up a development team is more important, see also: Bioware.
I think Starbreeze is nowadays co-developing Payday 3 and that Walking Dead videogame. They have also entered the publishing field. They are co-funding and will eventually distribute Psychonauts 2 and System Shock 3.
