Trouble in the Black Castle: Fritz, Chesster, and Bianca are back in an all-new Chess Adventure
New York, NY, October 25, 2004 - Viva Media is proud to announce the upcoming release of the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Learn To Play Chess with Fritz and Chesster CD-Rom game. Chess in the Black Castle rejoins the cast of LPC in another chess adventure for beginners and advanced players alike. LPC2 works with kids, demonstrating even the most advanced chess concepts through a simple, intelligible and engaging approach. Easy to use and fun to play LPC2 is packed with 21 arcade style mini games that reinforce important chess concepts introduced in the storyline. Viva Media's CEO Carlo Voelker comments, "Learn to Play Chess with Fritz and Chesster 2: Chess in the Black Castle" is much more than a sequel. It's an entirely unique chess adventure that welcomes new comers to the game and offers advanced chess training for those who already know how to play chess."
While Learn to Play Chess with Fritz and Chesster may look like 'child's play,' it is powered by Fritz, the world's #1 ranked chess software engine. Fritz is used by real life chess professionals worldwide and has been featured in the famous Man vs. Machine tournaments.
About the Game: Jump into chess action, move by move, to rescue Chesster from deep within King Black's Castle. Join Fritz and Bianca in a thrilling chess adventure where each challenge will help you sharpen your skills and prepare for the ultimate showdown. Have lots of fun while you learn about openings, pinning, delivering check, attacking, protecting - and much more.
