Double Fine takes to Kickstarter yet again with strategy epic Massive Chalice


May 4, 2013

Last year Double Fine arguably ignited the Kickstarter revolution with its "Double Fine Adventure" - now called Broken Age - raising over $3.3 million. Now the fan-favourite developer is at it again with Massive Chalice, a turn-based tactics game for PC, Mac and Linux.
