DigiPen students have submitted seven games to the 2010 IGF Main Competition, some of which we've already featured like Kabloom and Igneous. Here's another project from the college to watch: Solar Flare, an RTS in which players battle rival planets around an unstable sun.

Developed by a team of four (Scorched Muffin Entertainment) as a junior year project over the past 13 months, Solar Flare has you building cannons, shields, and power plants on your world as you trade shots with other orbiting planets in the solar system. It looks like you can also create black holes to pull shots away from you.

You can see more media and download the final version of Solar Flare for free from the DigiPen group's official site.
