India's FXLabs Opens New Outsourcing Division

India development studio FXLabs says it's moving into outsourcing services, adding a new division to support publishers and developers who want to use their development and art teams.

Hyderabad-based FXLabs will provide outsourcing services for PC and Flash games, and also offer 3D modeling, characters, props and environment models, rigging, texturing and animation.

The studio staffs over 100 artists and game programmers, and claims to be the only team in India to develop a complete game entirely within the country. FXLabs says it is experienced in using the Unreal and Torque engines, as well as other programming tools.

FXLabs' current development slate includes Inferno, a game based on Dante's Inferno, a game based on Dhoom 2, which it calls "the most valuable property in Bollywood," and a game based on Archie Comics.

"The outsourcing division was created to address and support the challenges faced by today's publishers and developers in their internal production capacity," says FXLabs founder and chairman Sashi Reddi. "Through this new service offering, we extend our expertise to achieving our partners' goals."
