Double Fine's Massive Chalice Kickstarter successful in 5 days

Double Fine's Massive Chalice runneth over with Kickstarter pledges. The campaign took just five days to top its $725,000 goal.

The generation-spanning strategy game crowns players as immortal kings or queens, who must guide squads of specialized heroes through turn-based combat in the vein of XCOM or Fire Emblem: Awakening. Those kings or queens also must decide when to retire their finest soldiers so their offspring may grow into a new wave of demon slayers.

Massive Chalice is led by Brad Muir, creator of Iron Brigade, with a team separate from Double Fine's first Kickstarter project, Broken Age. Initial plans call for a September 2014 release.

You can pre-order Massive Chalice now for a $20 minimum pledge.
