Fishlabs is hiring: Character Artist/Animator (3D) 
By Fishlabs on Nov 02, 2011 05:05 PM
We here at Fishlabs are convinced: Only those fascinated by what they do will excel. How do we know that? We are fascinated by mobile games and our top titles such as Galaxy on Fire 2™, Rally Master Pro™, Blades & Magic™, DEEP™ and Snowboard Hero™ are among the best games in their respective genres worldwide.

The future of gaming is mobile anyway: Nowadays top iPhone and iPad titles reach more than 10 million gamers. The quality of many smartphone and tablet games already surpasses that of DS- and PSP-games. Moreover, as early as next year we will be seeing them reach the level of current consoles.

That’s because mobile as a platform is growing rapidly while innovations reach the market in 6 months-intervals. Technological developments and innovative game play are literally running hand in hand. There are already more iPhones and iPads in the market than Xbox 360 or PS3 consoles – not to mention all those Android-, Windows- and other devices.

The bottom line: Those who want to stay at the edge of current market developments have to join team mobile. And those who want to develop multi award-winning, innovative smartphone and tablet games as part of a passionate team – and conquer all other platforms from there – simply have to join Fishlabs.
