Yep, Double Fine is back with a new Kickstarter project! This time is about turn-based tactics and feudal fantasy, in the brand new RPG called Massive Chalice.

The guys at Double Fine stated that the game, if backed, will be 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 they promise to create an epic, replayable turn-based tactics game where you train generations of heroes to repel a demonic invasion.

Any more detail? 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 so-called 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.

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.

The Kickstarter campaign has started today, it will last for 28 more days, and the final goal is $725k (as we’re writing this, they’ve raised more than $30k so far). As usual, if you feel positive about the project, here’s the Kickstarter page to throw your money at!
