ROCKFISH Games is a brand new independent gaming studio based in Hamburg, Germany and specialized in high-quality 3D video games for digital distribution platforms. It was founded by mobile games veterans Michael Schade and Christian Lohr, who have been joint entrepreneurs in the space of 3D graphics for over 20 years. As founders and managers of Fishlabs Entertainment, they had spearheaded 3D mobile gaming for almost a decade before they took on a new adventure with ROCKFISH Games. The first title under development is a next-gen console game and will be announced later this year.
