Lost Admiral Returns is the creation
of Fogstone Games and Thurston Searfoss. The game is
inspired by the original Lost Admiral game created by
Thurston Searfoss, QQP, and Bruce Williams in 1991.
The Lost Admiral won several awards,
including "Strategy Game of the Year 1992"
from Computer Gaming World Magazine. There is still
a loyal following of people playing the original game
over 12 years later, which has been the impetus for
this new version to bring the world of Lost Admiral
into the modern era of the Internet.
