Lost Cities Kickstarter Launched!

Hey there, Simply Chess Fans!

We at BlueLine Game Studios are happy to announce that we have just launched a Kickstarter for our newest game: Lost Cities! It uses the same great engine that we used for Simply Chess and have been growing over the years for our other games. The game will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, as usual, and we hope to use the Kickstarter to fund a bunch of translations and a few other new bells and whistles. We hope you'll take a few minutes to check out the Kickstarter:

We also have already put out a demo for the game that you can check out on the Lost Cities Steam page:

Thanks for your continued support of BlueLine Games! Enjoy!
