Fishlabs is a German video game developer based in Hamburg, Germany, who was responsible for the development of the mobile phone game Dead Island: Survivors.

Overview[]

Fishlabs is an internal development studio of Deep Silver, founded in 2004 under the name Fishlabs Entertainment GmbH. Fishlabs was, originally, an independent developer of mobile games, releasing their first game, Motoraver 3D, in 2008. However, they are best known for their series Galaxy on Fire, the first instalment of which released the following year in 2009. Despite the success of Galaxy on Fire and its sequel Galaxy on Fire 2 in 2010, by the middle of 2013 Fishlabs had run out of money and entered administration. Koch Media (now more commonly known as Plaion), acquired the company and reorganized it under Deep Silver, with Fishlabs becoming an internal studio. They continued to develop mobile games, eventually developing Dead Island: Survivors in 2018. Dead Island: Survivors proved to be the final mobile game the company developed as they began instead working on developing console games, most notably Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for the Nintendo Switch in 2019 and 2020 respectively. 2020 would also be the year that Dead Island: Survivors was shut down.
