Massive Chalice is Double Fine Productions’ Second Kickstarter
Fantasy tactics game with a Game of Thrones like bent.
Double Fine Productions has announced the launch of its second Kickstarter campaign, this time a 3D fantasy strategy tactics title known as Massive Chalice. The game isn’t being handled by Tim Schafer, who is currently occupied with Broken Age (funded by the developer’s first Kickstarter campaign).
Schafer stated that, “Double Fine is committed to remaining independent, and that includes being responsible to our fans above all else. Kickstarter allows us to do exactly that.”
The campaign currently has a goal of $725,000, and will end on June 27th. Massive Chalice will release in late 2014 for PC, Mac and Linux. With 27 days to go, the project has currently garnered 12,689 backers who have already pledged $459,624 thus far.
Game lead Brad Muir stated that the idea for Massive Chalice came from the fact that, “We love tactical strategy games, rogue-likes, and the idea of powerful Game of Thrones-style royal dynasties. Massive Chalice brings all of that together in a unique Double Fine package.”
