Chalice of Massive Expectations
With their previous Kickstart, Broken Age, in advanced stages of development, guys at Double Fine address the players once more. And the players answer, funding over half of the project in 3 days, as the concept is absolutely brilliant! Not that we would accept anything less from the creators of Psychonauts and Brütal Legend!
Massive Chalice is supposed to be a tactical RPG game influenced by the classics X-COM and Final Fantasy Tactics, with political elements resembling the reality of Game of Thrones. The main idea is that you, the mighty immortal sovereign (or sovereigness), are defending the land against an invasion of demons. You will lead small squads of warriors into tactical, grid-based warfare, but that is just the tip of the iceberg! There is no escaping time for your subject and eventually they will perish. However, given your permission, some of them may retire at a point and create the new generation of kingdom's defenders. Each new generation will get to wield Relics, powerful equipment embodying the strength of their ancestors. Also the game will be randomized in terms of events and the starting units, making every playthrough a new experience!
So it is up to you to decide the future of the kingdom! Do great politics, arrange marriages, fight epic battles and most importantly, watch the above trailer, as it is awesome. If it gets you, head to the Kickstarter campaign page and back the game up!
