The donations are flying on so fast that any figure I type here is already inaccurate

Fresh from destroying Kickstarter the first time around with their pledge-drive for the adventure game that would eventually become Broken Age, Double Fine are back and asking for money to fund Massive Chalice.
The game is described as if “turn-based tactics and feudal fantasy had a lovechild, and that offspring founded a mighty century-spanning dynasty,” and “an epic, replayable turn-based tactics game where you train generations of heroes to repel a demonic invasion”. Inspiration for the title includes X-COM, Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem — as well as Game of Thrones “array of noble families”.
Double Fine are asking for $725,000, and at the time of this writing they are well on their way there at $363,360. In fact when I started writing this piece they were at $359,000, so that should give you an idea of how fast the money is already racking up. The final product is slated for PC, Mac and Linux on the Buddha engine — find out more at Kickstarter.
