HAMBURG, GERMANY, 5th of June 2007– FISHLABS, a leading developer of premium 3D mobile games, has signed a distribution agreement with the WirelessDeveloper Agency, the leading wireless content brokering agency in North America, for a number of existing as well as upcoming 3D mobile games for Java™ and BREW™ handsets, all to be made available through Cingular, T-Mobile, Sprint PCS, Verizon, Bell Mobility and other carriers within the region.
Among others the deal includes FISHLABS’ first-person-shooter Robot Alliance™, the racing game Motoraver™, inspired on the spirit of the 70ies classic cars, as well as the latest multiple top award-winning title DEEP™ and IMGA-shortlisted fantasy RPG Blades&Magic™, finalist at International Mobile Games Award and Mobile Gaming Hunt at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco (CA) this year.
Konny Zsigo, President of WDA says:“Fishlabs’ premium 3d games are simply outstanding. The graphics are superb, they wouldn’t look out of place on a dedicated gaming device, the gameplay is straight-forward but always challenging and the longevity of titles like DEEP and Blades&Magic can compete with PC or console games. Even on BREW we haven’t come across many premium games that are up to Fishlabs titles. These games will definitively raise the bar for 3D mobile gaming.”
FISHLABS’ CEO and Co-Founder Michael Schade adds:„We are excited about working with WDA as they have literally shaped the mobile content business in the US from the very beginning. Konny and his team know just everyone in the industry and we can’t wait to see them bringing our high-end 3D games to all major carriers in the US and Canada with a potential subscriber base of 260 million in total, and an active current wireless gaming community of 13 million users. Furthermore, since they have distributed more games than anyone else in the region they really know best what’s hot and what’s not and so they can tell us how to tweak our games to make them most attractive to the mobile gamers in North America.“
The news follows FISHLABS’ recent distribution deals with Player X and Sony Ericsson and adds up to global footprint of 120 operators with a potential subscriber base of 2.8 million subscribers.
