Maia - Space colony god game
« on: October 31, 2012, 08:29:00 am »

Latest update video: The release trailer!

Now on Steam Early access!

We've now left Steam Early Access! Woo!

//////origional post///////

So I'm starting a new thread since I wasn't OP in the old one and I have huge news!

Maia has just launched on Kickstarter!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1438429768/maia?ref=home_location


Now on Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=157399596



Maia is my space colony management god game. It's a tribute to the Bullfrog games of the 90's and also some game about dwarfs or something. ;)

Loads of questions about the game answered here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1438429768/maia/posts/342232

You look mighty nervous in that video mate!  :P

I pledged and wish best of luck, really hoping for the campaign stretch goal too.

Will need time to decide whether or not to steal a release party invite slot. After all, I don't live in the UK - who knows if I'll be able to attend?

But I really, really want to give more than 7 pounds, so I'll figure out sometime soon the best place to be...

Also, congrats hemingjay and being a big spender for a worthy cause. ^_^

Irritating it won't let me use amazon checkout for this kickstarter for some reason. Dislike giving sites my card details. (Backed it, obviously, but still dislike :P)

Would probably be a good idea to put "- KICKSTARTER!" in the title.
You can change it back any time you want, to mark updates etc.

Helps grab attention.

Ah, good. I will have to back this once I get a chance. Probably tomorrow, as today is slated to be super busy.
