BREAKING: Double Fine Reveals First Massive Chalice Screenshot

News breaks on Twitter directly from turn-based strategy game's director.

SAN FRANCISCO--After completing a heady and ultimately successful Kickstarter for its new turn-based strategy game Massive Chalice, Double Fine has now revealed the game's first screenshot via director Brad Muir's Twitter account. Given that the crowd-funding campaign wrapped a full six weeks ago, this screen likely represents a game nearing the end of its production cycle.

Take a look at the first shot after the jump.

At press time, no word was available on Massive Chalice's support of advanced features such as enemies, or texture maps.

Hehe, nice!

I saw the word BREAKING and only 2 comments, so I clicked right away (without even reading the rest of the title) thinking I might for once be one of the first to know, well, anything.

I was not disappointed.
