Description [fr]

Un jeu de stratégie tactique au tour par tour de type médiéval fantastique, par le studio Double Fine Productions.
Il utilise le moteur Buddha (moteur 3D du même studio).

Massive chalice est un jeu de stratégie tactique au tour par tour de type médiéval fantastique dans lequel le joueur entraîne des générations de héros afin de repousser une invasion démoniaque. Il est conçu pour offrir une jouabilité renouvelée via des campagnes de jeux de stratégie multi-générationnelles.
En tant que Roi ou Reine immortel, votre devoir est d'unir votre royaume en une puissante dynastie, d'éliminer la menace démoniaque, et de reforger le calice massif !

Le jeu est structuré en deux couches principales: la stratégie et la tactique. Dans la couche stratégie, vous supervisez votre royaume, arrangez des mariages royaux, menez des recherches et prenez des décisions de grande portée qui détermineront le destin de votre héritage. Dans la couche tactique, vous combattez brutalement au tour par tour pour défendre votre royaume en utilisant de petites escouades de héros personnalisables. La mort permanente est inévitable : vos héros vont croître, vieillir, et finissent par mourir. Vous aurez à choisir entre le maintien de vos héros préférés sur le champ de bataille ou les retirer du combat pour favoriser une nouvelle génération de guerriers.

Description [en]

A tactical strategy PC game on an epic fantasy timeline from the creators of Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, and Iron Brigade!

If Turn-Based tactics and feudal fantasy had a lovechild, and that offspring founded a mighty century-spanning dynasty, it would be MASSIVE CHALICE.

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.

Permadeath is inevitable: your heroes will grow, age, and eventually die. You'll have to choose between keeping your favorite heroes on the battlefield or retiring them from combat to foster a new generation of warriors.

Drawing from roguelikes we love, content is modular and randomized. Each playthrough begins with a random assortment of male and female heroes from various bloodlines, guaranteeing that each game is unique. Your knowledge and skill will increase over multiple playthroughs, but the details of every game will change based on your decisions and the whims of fate.

Features

☑ Your story emerges as you defend against attacks, complete quests, and respond to randomized events in your attempt to preserve the kingdom.
☑ Line of sight and fog of war mechanics come into play as your squad explores beautiful dynamic 3D battlefields where danger may lurk behind any corner.
☑ Distinct, customizable heroes learn new melee, ranged, and arcane abilities as they age and gain combat experience.
☑ Arrange marriage alliances to ensure your heroic bloodlines can handle any future combat situation.
☑ Battle alongside your ancestors by equipping your heroes with uniquely powerful Bloodline Relics.
☑ Invest your resources in forging new weapons and armor—and gamble on polluting a bloodline by researching dangerous demonic artifacts.

☑ Bloodline Genetics - MASSIVE CHALICE features an innovative Bloodline system that allows the player to marry heroes together to produce children. The Bloodline system uses a randomized genetic code for every hero. Their children can end up with the best (or worst!) gameplay-impacting traits of their parents.
☑ Permadeath - The heroes in MASSIVE CHALICE age over the course of the timeline and eventually pass away. This forces the player to engage in the beauty of permadeath and always juggle an imperfect party of heroes with which to do battle!
☑ Bloodline Relics - If a hero has fought valiantly enough when they inevitably pass away, their weapon has a chance to become a Bloodline Relic. This powerful Relic can be passed down to any character of the same house in order to carry on the legacy of the fallen hero!
☑ Long View Strategy - Because the war lasts 300 years, players need to take a long view of their strategy. Decisions have to be made dozens of years in advance and long-term planning is incredibly important. That 3-year-old toddler is going to grow up to be your most reliable melee fighter sooner than you think!
