Double Fine doubles down on Kickstarter with Massive Chalice
May 30, 2013 | By Kris Ligman




Double Fine Productions broke Kickstarter records in March of last year raising $3.3 million for Double Fine Adventure, which is currently in development under the title Broken Age. Now, Double Fine intends to follow up on past successes with another crowdfunded title, Massive Chalice.

Designed as a 3D tactical fantasy game "with a multi-generational twist," the project will be headed up by studio veteran Brad Muir, previously project lead on Iron Brigade.

"We love tactical strategy games, roguelikes, and the idea of powerful Game of Thrones-style royal dynasties," Muir said in a statement from the developer. "Massive Chalice brings all of that together."

The game is being developed with Double Fine's Buddha Engine for release on Windows, Mac and Linux. At time of writing, not even an hour from launch, Massive Chalice's Kickstarter has already topped $85,000 in funding, more than a tenth of its $725,000 target.
