Double Fine Productions’ Massive Chalice is officially happening as more than 20,000 backers have pushed it over its $725,000 funding goal.

Earlier this morning, five days after launching the crowdfunding campaign, Double Fine crossed its initial goal for the turn-based feudal-fantasy game. With 23 days left to accept pledges, the developer can now begin focusing on stretch goals. That could mean additional platforms and multiplayer, according to the studio.

“From the moment we launched the Massive Chalice Kickstarter, it has been crazy around here,” Double Fine designer Brad Muir wrote in an update. “We are blown away by your support. The Massive Chalice team and all of Double Fine can’t thank you enough. You are all so very beautiful!”

Massive Chalice is a tactical dynasty title that has players controlling their royal lineage over the course of decades. It’s a single-player game that has players facing off against a demon army determined to destroy everything.

“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,” reads its Kickstarter page. “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.”

Double Fine is currently planning to release Massive Chalice on PC, Mac, and Linux. The studio plans to release a video this week where it will describe the current state of development.
