Launching the new Lost Admiral Returns in 2003, Fogstone Games brings quality strategy games to life for players through a mix of deep game play and Internet technologies that allow players to easily find other players and other activities found on the game's website.

Lost Admiral Returns lets players outmaneuver each other in battle for control of coastal cities using battleships, destroyers, submarines, and other ships.  A wide variety of challenges through randomized maps, campaigns, specialized flagships, and other fun options.  The game keeps a history of all games won or lost by players, and allows these accomplishments to be shared over the Internet.

The games featured by Fogstone Games are based on several classic computer games originally published with QQP in 1991 through 1995.  Summaries of these games can be found below.


This shot of the spiral galaxy M101 was taken at Blueberry Pond Observatory using the advanced digital astronomy equipment found there.  Visiting families and students do visual observing through a 12" telescope, and then take their own digital pictures showing tremendous deail in faint galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters.

Blueberry Pond Observatory:

Pownal, Maine.


Created in late 1999 to bring modern digital astronomy to life for families and students throughout Maine.  Visitors experience a mix of visual and digital observing that brings to life many deep sky objects such as galaxies, nebulas, asteroids, and comets in ways normally only seen in books and magazines.

Visitors take home their own freshly captured images of these objects, and students come back to the observatory over the span of several visits to conduct advanced astronomy projects.
