Description

SFB Games is a British independent game studio, founded by brothers Tom and Adam Vian, who have been making games together since 2003.

History

Early history

While SFB Games was only founded in the summer of 2012, brothers Tom and Adam have been making games together under the name of 'The Super Flash Bros' since 2003, when they were just 17 and 14 respectively. Initially concentrating mostly on Flash animations, they quickly moved on to making Flash games too, posting all of their work to Newgrounds.com and recieving a largely positive response. After a break from making games while Tom attended univerity, a partnership with Armor Games was formed, with Armor providing sponsorship for all of the brothers' subsequent Flash games, eventually totalling 34 Flah games in all.

Recent

To prepare for the release of their then-iOS/Andoid-only game Detective Grimoire, and in order to better work with other companies, the brothers decided to form an official company, instead of opperating as sole traders as they had up until that point. Following the founding of SFB Games, the brothers have worked with Sony to bring a game to their PlayStation Mobile platform, worked with Adult Swim to build a game together, launched a successful Kickstarter campaign, put two games through Valve's Steam Greenlight system and launched one of those two games on Steam itself, with the other to launch soon.
