This new agreement is part of a larger initiative by flaregames to build an impressive publishing portfolio of high-quality mobile games. Recently the company announced similar agreements with Subatomic Studios for the co-development of a new Fieldrunners game, and Limbic, who are working with flaregames on Zombie Gunship, Inc. Last year, flaregames published Agents of Storm from renowned Finnish studio Remedy and in a few weeks Superweapon, an LA-based studio of industry veterans, is set to release their first game, the RTS Dawn of Steel, under the flaregames brand.
Alejandro Gonzalez, co-founder and CEO of Brainz, comments: “We like the no-nonsense approach of flaregames. They are very straightforward, very open and utterly professional. It is easy to understand why they collected so many great developers in so short a time: They love games as much as we do and they understand development as well as we do.”
Klaas Kersting, founder and CEO of flaregames, says: “Our move into publishing has rewarded us with a growing number of new friends in the business. Brainz is the latest pearl in our chain of brilliant partner studios from all over the world. We love their down-to-earth, hands-on attitude, their technical prowess and their glowing enthusiasm.”
