SFB Games Limited (formerly The Super Flash Bros.) is a British video game developer based in London. The studio was founded in September 2002 by brothers Tom and Adam Vian, under the name The Super Flash Bros., to develop Adobe Flash movies and games. In May 2012, the studio incorporated as SFB Games. At SFB Games, Tom acts as technical director, while Adam occupies the role of creative director.[1]

History[edit]

On 2 September 2002, brothers Tom and Adam Vian, at the time aged 17 and 14, respectively,[2] established a Newgrounds account under the name The Super Flash Bros., and uploaded their first Adobe Flash movie, Metal Gear Mayhem, the same day.[3] The duo went on hiatus when Tom started attending university.[citation needed] After reforming, they entered into a partnership with Armor Games, whereby Armor Games would fund all future Flash games created by the two brothers.[citation needed] In total, they developed 34 games for the Armor Games.[citation needed] On 16 May 2012, the studio incorporated as SFB Games Limited under the United Kingdom company law,[4] the "SFB" being an abbreviation of the former name.[5]
