Fishlabs looks to hire 25 as it staffs up another production team

It's been an interesting nine months for German mobile developer Fishlabs.

In December 2013, it was bought by Koch Media and rebranded as part of its Deep Silver games division.

Since then Deep Silver Fishlabs has ported the PC point-and-click adventure Secret Files: Tunguska to iOS.

News about other projects, including its core Galaxy on Fire  franchise, hasn't been forthcoming though.

More galaxies to explore

Technically, that's still the case, but the company's relocation to a new office provides hope that it will be more active in 2015.

The 65-strong team says the move will enable it to expand to 90 people by the end of 2014, and this will enable it to staff up a new development team.

Deep Silver Fishlabs currently has two unnamed titles in development, and will soon to releasing Galaxy on Fire - Alliances  to Android.

"Our new office in Ludwig-Erhard-Strasse provides us with a spacious, well-equipped environment that is perfectly suited for the team-based development of a selected range of next-gen mobile games in differing production states," commented head of studio, Michael Krach.
