Massive Chalice Runneth Over Out Of Early Access

After generations of updates and patches and fixes and tweaks, Double Fine’s Massive Chalice [] has left Steam Early Access to become a properly-released game. As Marsh explained when he played the Early Access version last November, it’s a turn-based strategy game where you’ll need to to build up strong warrior bloodlines across a war lasting hundreds of years.

Between grid-based battles (Alec dubbed the game “SEXCOM” when he played), you’ll need to balance the strength of your current army with plans for the future. A strong warrior is handy in the feed, but at a certain point might be more useful married off and producing strong future fighters. What a bloody dating game! As I always say, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.

Massive Chalice was in Early Access for six and a bit months. Depending on whether you follow the meteorological or solar reckoning, it either made its planned spring 2015 release with weeks to spare or narrowly missed it (though was a few months behind their Kickstarter schedule). Me, I’m a sucker for equinoxes and solstices so I’ll say yes, congratulations Double Fine! After what happened to Spacebase DF9, I’m glad to see this went well.

The game’s £12.09 DRM-free on GOG with £1.60 returned in store credit, £11.99 on Steam, and comes both DRM-free and with a Steam key on the Humble Store for £11.99.
