Hey MASSIVE CHALICE Backers! 

The pre-production party continues! Sorry for the late notice, but due to PAX Prime we’re going to be doing Teamstream #5 TODAY, August 29th at 4PM Pacific (23:00 GMT)! Tune in to twitch.tv/doublefine where we’ll be talking about the current state of design, art, and programming of MASSIVE CHALICE. As always we’ll end with a Q&A session to let you guys tell us what’s on your mind!

PAX Prime Panel

Brad is going to be at PAX Prime this weekend! Double Fine is hosting a panel about Open Game Development on Sunday, September 1st at 3PM Pacific (22:00 GMT) in the Kraken theater featuring Greg Rice, Chris Remo, Brad, and none other than Tim Schafer himself! We’d love to have you join us as we share our thoughts about being more open with our community.

You can find more details about all of our PAX Prime activities here!

Changes to Updates

You might be wondering why we are sending this out through Kickstarter again. Well we had to do some upgrades and tweaks to our mailing list and so future updates will be coming from massivechalice@doublefine.net. Please update your spam filters, and thanks for hanging with us while we work out these kinks!

And just a reminder that if the MASSIVE CHALICE forums aren’t your thing then be sure to keep an eye on our blog here! We’ll also be posting our Teamstream on the Double Fine YouTube channel here.

We’re looking forward to hanging out with you guys today!

Sincerely,

Brad and the MASSIVE CHALICE team! :D!

Hey MASSIVE CHALICE Backers!

Pre-production continues! Brad and John have been hammering out some awesome designs. Andy, Derek and Geoff have been making a whole lot of awesome art.

Teamstream #4 This Friday! 

This Friday, August 16th at 4PM Pacific (23:00 GMT) we’ll be hosting our fourth Teamstream! Tune in to twitch.tv/doublefine where we’ll be talking about the current state of pre-production and discussing more of our early design ideas.

If you want to get more involved with the discussion be sure to check out the MASSIVE CHALICE forums and start a conversation!

Changes to Updates

We love keeping you guys updated. To make sure we can get those out as timely as possible we are streamlining how we get the word out! So, from now on you’ll be getting MASSIVE CHALICE update emails straight from us. Be sure to add updates@doublefine.com to your spam filter so you don’t miss out on our Teamstream announcements, Art updates and other MASSIVE NEWS!

Oh and don’t worry. We won’t miss any of your email addresses. Way back when the Kickstarter finished we sucked in all the backer emails into our Double Fine database and that’s the one we’ve been keeping up-to-date! We’ve got you covered!

For really important updates we’ll be sure to send out a Kickstarter update as well as the email update from updates@doublefine.com.

We’re looking forward to this Friday. We’ve got all kinds of goodies to show and we are stoked to hear your latest questions!

Sincerely,

Brad and the MASSIVE CHALICE team! :D!

Hey MASSIVE CHALICE Fans!

We’re firing on all cylinders and crushing it in pre-production! We’re hammering out priorities, estimating stuff and gaining focus. Along with Brad and John being back we’re happy to announce that Andy Wood is joining MASSIVE CHALICE as Art Director and Chad Dawson is joining us as Lead Programmer. Andy and Chad are both game industry veterans who worked together on The Cave. We’re stoked to have them both on the team!

Hey MASSIVE CHALICE Fans!

Things are moving smoothly here at Double Fine HQ. Our small pre-production team has been plagued by this weird, rare virus called “vacation” but we’re moving through it as best we can. The team is coming together and we’re starting to work on the game in earnest. Right now we’re working out pre-productions plans, project scoping, staffing charts, and shuffling desks around. Not exactly the sexiest part of the game development process, but it’s all part of the plan. :D!

Teamstream #2 Tomorrow!

Tomorrow Friday, July 19th, we’ll be hosting our second Teamstream! Tune in to twitch.tv/doublefine at 4PM Pacific (23:00 GMT) where we’ll be talking about our pre-production process and Brad’s recent vacation to the Pacific Northwest. We’ll also follow up with a short Q&A session to address any burning issues you guys have thought up over the last couple weeks!

We’re looking forward to hanging out with you on the Teamstream. See you Friday!

Sincerely,

Brad and the MASSIVE CHALICE team! :D!

Hey MASSIVE CHALICE Backers!

Well, we’ve rested up, Brad has come out of his “three-day coma” and we’re continuing to lay the groundwork for MASSIVE CHALICE! It’s still early days, of course, but we want to get a dialog going with you starting now!

Teamstream Today (2PM Pacific, 21:00 GMT) 

Today we’ll be hosting our first Teamstream! Tune into twitch.tv/doublefine at 2PM Pacific (21:00 GMT)! We’ll be talking about some of our initial plans and Brad will be showing off the Unity prototype that he made way back before the Kickstarter even started! It’s really not good looking... at all. Like, in any way. But it will help you guys understand Brad’s earliest MASSIVE CHALICE concepts—how it all begins before these things become full-fledged video games! 

Bonus Demon Sketches!

We thought you guys would like to see some of Derek’s latest sketches. Here ya go!

Hi-Res Version

We’re looking forward to seeing you guys on the Teamstream and answering a question or two! 

Sincerely, 

Brad and the MASSIVE CHALICE team! :D!
