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.
