Mobile Entertainment: 3D Mobile Games – Console Experience in your Hand
Michael Schade, Managing Partner/CEO, Fishlabs Entertainment GmbH

Case study of bringing console gaming experience to mobile devices. Based on top brand “V-Rally 3D”, one of the most successful racing titles on Playstation 2, the audience gets an idea of the challenges in dealing with low performance devices, small displays, limited controls, small file sizes and heavy platform fragmentation.



Michael Schade studied engineering at the technical university of Hamburg-Harburg in the late eighties. In parallel he worked for Adobe Systems as promotor and trainer for Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere. In 1993 he founded a company for 3D animation together with his fellow student Christian Lohr. With over 13 years experience in 3D animation the two entrepreneurs founded FISHLABS when with Sony Ericsson’s line up of 3D enabled mass market phones the transition phase from 2D to 3D in mobile gaming began.
