The cutely named Blue Manchu is the new company founded by Jonathan Chey, who also co-founded Irrational Games back in 1997 with Ken Levine and Robert Fermier. Chey only just came forward with his studio’s existence, despite having officially created the company back in August of last year. From then up until now, the company has been working on Card Hunter, a collectible card game for browsers (with an iOS version expected further down the line). No surprise there, since “Magic: The Gathering” creator Richard Garfield is counted among the staff.

“Our goal is to create innovative titles that are a bit off the beaten path.” Chey detailed, “Card Hunter is a good example of that, mixing board gaming with MMO like features such as item collection and trading.”
