GamerKnights have reviewed Massive Chalice.
Here is a snippet:
"In my first game, I found that after about 100 years, I’d managed to fumble my way into only producing children who would grow up as drunks, of a single hybrid class that was utterly useless in most combat situations. Oops. You also need to manage your research and buildings, and assign heroes to your buildings effectively, but it’s never really overwhelming to manage. The main issue is managing the turn-based strategy battles which make up the remaining portion of the game. When the Cadence attack, you can only defend a single region at a time, meaning that you will lose regions over the 300 years before the Chalice is charged up."
