Massive Chalice Kickstarter Campaign Nets More Than 1.5x Funding Goal

Posted on June 27, 2013 AT 03:23pm

Double Fine’s newest project, Massive Chalice, has ended its Kickstarter campaign with more than 1.5x its funding goal raised.

The studio launched Massive Chalice‘s Kickstarter campaign in May with a goal of $725,000, which was surpassed within a week’s time. The campaign officially concluded with $1,229,015 raised in funding.

“I’m ecstatic! I can’t believe that we’ve cleared our goal by such a large amount,” project lead Brad Muir told Polygon. “It’s humbling and inspiring to see our backers show up in large amounts to support a brand new game, especially with all the risks. and now that I’ve gotten over the sheer terror, I’m really  motivated and excited to make good on our promises and deliver the best game possible.”

Muir describes Massive Chalice as a tactical-strategy game inspired by the likes of XCOM, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Fire Emblem. The project is still in the early design phase, but the major gameplay hook will be the continued fight against an invading demon army that spans several generations of warriors. Players will have to decided whether to retire warriors to sire the next generation of heroes or keep them on the front lines.

Earlier this month, Muir announced that same-sex relationships would be incorporated into Massive Chalice based on overwhelming demand from fans. The lead designer stated it wasn’t something he was remotely opposed to, it was just something that hadn’t occurred to him due to what Muir described as “hetero privilege.”

Double Fine hopes to release Massive Chalice on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux September 2014.
