Solar Flux – New From Firebrand Games

SF_BannerGlasgow’s Firebrand Games has been fairly quiet of late.  The Studio is the developer behind a whole range of driving games for large publishers, including TrackMania on Nintendo DS to Need for Speed: Undercover to Dirt 2 and Need for Speed: The Run on Wii and Nintendo 3DS.

Solar Flux is due out in August.
