Card Hunter is a new free-to-play PC strategy from Irrational Co-Founder

Although most gamers know Ken Levine as the head of Irrational Games, the company was co-founded by also Jon Chey. Chey decided to go solo though and built his own company that is called Blue Manchu and its first game is a free-to-play PC strategy called Card Hunter.
During an interview with GamaSutra, Chey described his game as a board/card hybrid that features RPG elements.
“The best way to describe it is, imagine I take an MMO, and every time you
fight a monster, instead of playing a timer game with pull downs and buttons
that you click, you’re playing a turn-based strategy game.
You have little pieces on a board, and you play cards to move those pieces
around, and that’s the battle you fight. And at the end of the battle you win
some treasure, which you then use to trick your characters like you do in an
MMO, but those characters are actually pieces in the board game.”
At the time or writing, Chey is the only full-time staff member at Blue Manchu. There are however a number of Irrational veterans that are contributing to his project, like Dorian Hart, Ben Lee and Richard Garfield.
