“Overview

If turn-based tactics and feudal fantasy had a lovechild, and that offspring founded a mighty century-spanning dynasty, it would be Massive Chalice.

With your help, Massive Chalice will become a reality—forged by Double Fine with our 3D in-house Buddha Engine and unleashed on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

We’re inspired by classic tactical strategy games like X-COM, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Fire Emblem, as well as Game of Thrones’ array of noble families. With these influences in mind we’re creating an epic, replayable turn-based tactics game where you train generations of heroes to repel a demonic invasion.

And with Kickstarter, we can do it. We have a great concept and team ready to go, and we want to work closely with our community to control the future of Massive Chalice free from outside interference.

The Game

Massive Chalice is a single player turn-based tactics game within a multi-generational strategy campaign built for replayability.

As an immortal King or Queen, you must unite your kingdom under a powerful dynasty, eliminate the demonic threat, and reforge the Massive Chalice!

The game is structured into two main layers: strategy and tactics. In the strategy layer, you oversee your kingdom, arrange royal marriages, conduct research, and make the far-reaching decisions that will determine the fate of your legacy.

In the tactics layer, you fight brutal turn-based battles to defend your kingdom using small squads of customizable heroes.

Permadeath is inevitable: your heroes will grow, age, and eventually die. You’ll have to choose between keeping your favorite heroes on the battlefield or retiring them from combat to foster a new generation of warriors.

Drawing from roguelikes we love, content is modular and randomized. Each playthrough begins with a random assortment of male and female heroes from various bloodlines, guaranteeing that each game is unique. Your knowledge and skill will increase over multiple playthroughs, but the details of every game will change based on your decisions and the whims of fate.

Features

• Your story emerges as you defend against attacks, complete quests, and respond to randomized events in your attempt to preserve the kingdom.

• Line of sight and fog of war mechanics come into play as your squad explores beautiful dynamic 3D battlefields where danger may lurk behind any corner.

• Distinct, customizable heroes learn new melee, ranged, and arcane abilities as they age and gain combat experience.

• Arrange marriage alliances to ensure your heroic bloodlines can handle any future combat situation.

• Battle alongside your ancestors by equipping your heroes with uniquely powerful Bloodline Relics.

• Invest your resources in forging new weapons and armor—and gamble on polluting a bloodline by researching dangerous demonic artifacts.”

gamesaga yesterdays recap logo Yesterdays Recap   June 3rd, 2013
Had another busy day at my day job today. I apologize once again for the lack of updates. I know this is really bad timing what with E3 coming up. I am going to try to live blog the Nintendo Direct and at least the major press conferences/events, but that may get interrupted if I have a lot of work to do at my full time job.

Anyways, yesterday as I mentioned I didn’t get to post a lot, just a trailer for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and the usual daily stuff.
