I like these kind of games. With the added generational element makes it interesting. Love to see a follow up with larger investment.

keep coming back to it

Turn based combat over generations spanning 300 years. breed your houses bloodlines, pass on relics, and lead your heros into battle.

Bloody wonderful game

Mechanics are fluid. Similar to Fire Emblem Games. The unique genetic generational component is genious and desirable for future turn based strat rpgs. Well worth the time.

Great Strategy Game

You make the decisions down to the details of the names and flags. A deep game, challenging, but entertaining.

Great game

Before playing this game I never really played turn based strategy games. I usually played shooters and RPGs. I didn't expect to even get halfway through the story. But I ended up finishing the game and enjoying it. It is kinda hard to get into at first but I understood all of the mechanics after an hour. This game is not for everyone. I would recommend it to people with patience.

Deep and Rewarding

This game starts slow, but it picks up after about 50 years have passed. While there isn't much of a story, the game offers some excellent tactical gameplay and long-term strategic planning for those who stick with it long enough to understand the systems and how they work. Managing bloodlines and balancing research and training bonuses with your heroes' battlefield skills is a lot of fun and very satisfying. If you like strategy and tactics, Massive Chalice is the game for you. The only fault is the lack of any real, gripping storyline. The narrative doesn't get much more involved than "bad guys are invading, you should build a kingdom, raise an army, and kill the bad guys." The lineage system is very cool, but time passes so quickly it's tough to get to know any of the families or become attached to favorite heroes. None of that dimishes the amazing strategic and tactical gameplay though. This game is a hidden gem. Check it out.

Great Idea, lacking in final detail.

Good game, but it lacks in the minor details that make it enjoyable. Just seems repitive and rushed. There isn't a whole lot going on to make a player really get focused and in tune with the story and characters.

Unnecessarily Difficult

Silly combat: Enemies without heir atk ranges visible, and they have no ability limits. You'll find yourself in nonstrategic combat with enemies abusing their best 'abilities' (and the game fails to even tell you that enemies have alt atks. Overall, it got really dull and stopped being fun and fair around 12 hrs in (way too long for 1 campaign). This is a lot like Banner Saga: unforgiving, regressive in terms of the genre, and just plain moronic gimmickry like random decisions with unforeseeable consequences and a geneology system that is rigged to prevent specific over powered traits from showing up together. Save your time, better TBS games exist.
