New additions to the Fishlabs team:

- for immediate publication –

Hamburg, Germany, 01.09.2011 - Merely two months after having moved into their new office space in the inner city of Hamburg, the world’s leading developer and publisher of high-end 3D games for smartphones and tablets, Fishlabs Entertainment, goes into the next round of its expansion with the engagement of three new employees. With Christian Leibe (Lead Web Designer), Tobias Piwek (Online Editor) and Sebastian Grun (Community Manager), CEO Michael Schade and his team have just hired a skilled trio for the marketing department.

Christian Leibe (31), who has already gained extensive experience in regard to the design and maintenance of gaming websites due to his prior position as Junior Art Director Online at dtp entertainment AG, has last worked as a Flash Specialist for the communication agency elephantseven. At Fishlabs, the qualified Communications Designer will not only be responsible for the company’s online presence, but furthermore will he lend his talents to the marketing team and aid them in the creation of effective means of promotion and communication and the upcoming relaunch of www.galaxyonfire.com.

As an experienced Editor and Freelance-Writer, who has already worked for numerous lifestyle magazines and webzines, Tobias Piwek (29) will henceforth fill Fishlabs’ various online portals with content. Besides writing blog entries, website texts and developer’s diaries, he will also post online news concerning the company’s extensive portfolio of award-winning games, as well as moderate their highly frequented YouTube channel, popular Facebook and Twitter accounts or www.galaxyonfire.com.

Sebastian Grun (28) has worked as a Customer Service Representative at Blizzard Entertainment’s branch office in Cork, Ireland for the past three years. At Fishlabs, he will take care of the forums and support systems and prepare them for the rush of customer inquiries, which is to be expected once the company’s up-and-coming new project has been released.

“Christian, Tobias and Sebastian make excellent additions to our team. They will spearhead a new online offensive, which will not only help us to interact with our community in a more personal and professional way, but also enable us to reach a way higher number of fans. With their help, Fishlabs will be able to expand its present forum and support capacities many times over. And that’s something we’ll definitely need after the upcoming launch of a path-breaking new title within the Galaxy on Fire universe,” says Fishlabs-CEO Michael Schade.
