    A creative team within Double Fine (not the team that is currently working on Broken Age, so no Tim Schafer or that other guy or those other guys and girls), but a different team within Double fine, lead by Brad Muir, if that means anything to you, wants to work on a new title, called "MASSIVE CHALICE" (yes, apparently it's in all caps), a turn-based strategy/tactics game in the vein of Fire Emblem and the like. And they've started a Kickstarter campaign to fund it. Their goal is $750,000.





    $20 will get you the game, so go over there and start throwing money at them. [/p]

    Can't they just finish the last game they did a Kickstarter for? They're coming off as greedy now.

    Double Fine seems to think they're a lot cooler than they really are. Never played Psychonauts so I can't comment there, but no game of theirs that I've played has been all that good. Sure Brutal Legend had Jack Black and a good soundtrack, but the gameplay was pretty weaksauce.

    Like I said, the last game is being worked on by another team. And throwing more people at a project can only get you so far, so you have a bunch of people who are not working on Broken Age sitting around twiddling their thumbs, and an interesting idea for a game, so why not put them to use?

    Sounds very interesting, but man, Broken Age isn't even out yet. Seems kinda sudden, to do another Kickstarter that quickly. Even it it's a separate team.

    I love Double Fine but even the prodigal son of crowdfunding can't just prance around asking for a crap-ton of cash after already having one of the most successful Kickstarters of all time. :teach:

    I wonder if fans will punish the developers - could we see Double Fine receive a trouble fine?

    Little update, the campaign has reached its funding goal. The game is on.
