I absolutely love the style of Maia and it's pleasing to see this gorgeous colony building sim progress. This new update is pretty decent too.

It adds:
- Stockpiling in storage rooms, instead of piles everywhere
- A food preparation station
- IMP pathing issues fixed
- An improved UI for object placement (A common complaint is that the UI is too limited)
- Lots of fixes and optimizations

The newer UI is certainly an improvement. You are now able to get a glance at the list of items each room is able to have when placing objects. Instead of randomly scrolling through to get what you want.

I will continue to watch this game progress in the hopes that it becomes something awesome, sadly right now it still feels quite shallow. It needs more of everything.

Sadly one really annoying bug right now is when you go fullscreen, your cursor seems to turn mostly invisible.

Find Maia on Steam.

For now I believe Rimworld and the modded version of Spacebase DF9 seem to be far ahead...

Which mod are you referring to? Do you mean the Unofficial patch?

...which is the reason I DON'T buy EA games AT ALL. Why should I pay for something that's maybe not being finished any day soon?

It's another thing with Kickstarter in my opion: You know you'll support something risky. In many cases it's kind of creative and won't happen without your support. Still I gave up on begging Kickstart Linux games for the reason the linux fanbase got kicked ass so many times in the past.
