Double Fine has just announced via press release details that their Kickstarter turn based strategy game Massive Chalice will be one of Xbox One’s free Games with Gold for the month of June 2015.
If you followed Double Fine’s Kickstarter page you will see that they raised over $1.2 million dollars saying that:
“We’re inspired by classic tactical strategy games like X-COM, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Fire Emblem, as well as Game of Thrones’ array of noble families. With these influences in mind we’re creating an epic, replayable turn-based tactics game where you train generations of heroes to repel a demonic invasion.
And with Kickstarter, we can do it. We have a great concept and team ready to go, and we want to work closely with our community to control the future of MASSIVE CHALICE free from outside interference.”
“MASSIVE CHALICE is a single player turn-based tactics game within a multi-generational strategy campaign built for replayability.
As an immortal King or Queen, you must unite your kingdom under a powerful dynasty, eliminate the demonic threat, and reforge the MASSIVE CHALICE!”
The game is structured into two main layers: strategy and tactics. In the strategy layer, you oversee your kingdom, arrange royal marriages, conduct research, and make the far-reaching decisions that will determine the fate of your legacy.
In the tactics layer, you fight brutal turn-based battles to defend your kingdom using small squads of customizable heroes.”

I wonder how much money Microsoft paid to have that as a free title, bet that helped the project?
Are you excited by Double Fine’s new release, where you a backer?
I’m sure to let you know my experience with the game when it releases early next month.
