FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
29 AUGUST 2007, BUDAPEST, HUNGARY
Located in the European Union– Hungary, 3D BRIGADE is Eastern-Europe’s leading art and asset outsourcing studio for the videogame industry. Its annual revenue approaches, and in most cases surpasses, the annual revenue from the largest outsourcing companies in Asia. Of the major outsourcers in China, only the Shanghai-based Radiance Digital Entertainment announced its 2006 revenue, USD 600,000. In the same year, 3D BRIGADE Inc. closed with a total revenue of USD 1 million. This was triple the amount in 2005 and the company targets a similar revenue rise for 2007.
Five years ago when Zsolt Vamosi (Chairman of the Board&COO), Gabor Kadi (CEO&CFO), and Peter Szucsy (Art Director) founded 3D BRIGADE, the outsourcing explosion in the interactive entertainment industry hadn’t occurred and was still a foggy prediction from top industry analysts and researchers. Established in 2002 with a half dozen in-house artists and 2-3 projects per year, the company evolved at a steady rate. Last year 3D BRIGADE contributed to 24 different game titles, worked with 21 different clients, delivered more than 35 minutes of pre-rendered and real-time cinematics on AAA titles, 100+ high polygonal characters, and supplied more than 1500 environmental objects (buildings, vehicles, plants, etc.) on various game platforms. An indicator of the company’s success is that it has become an official vendor for the largest video game publishers including Disney, Atari, Electronic Arts, and others.
90% of 3D BRIGADE’s clients are from Europe and North America, so the Business Development works in two shifts to accommodate different time zones. In addition, the Project Management speaks a total of six world languages. However, the key to the company’s success is not only first rate customer service or best value, quality services, but that its artists understand a seventh language: the visual language of videogames.
California-based Interactive Studio Management (ISM), a respected agency in the game development community, considers 3D BRIGADE to be one of the top art and asset outsourcing companies worldwide and recommends the Hungarian studio to its clients as a preferential, strategic partner. ISM art outsourcing specialist, Nick Jacob, said,“3D Brigade has a great and well-deserved reputation in the video game industry as a high-value art outsourcer.”
3D BRIGADE plans to open new offices in Eastern-European and Far Eastern countries this year.
