Maia on Kickstarter, a new god game from indie developer Simon Roth

Posted by , | Views: 3,236
Inspired heavily by the 70's Sci-fi aesthetic, Maia is a colony management simulator where you must keep your colonists safe, fed and happy. Liberally influenced by nineties god games, the game will have a dark sense of humour and more toys to play with than you can shake a Molyneux at.

Supporting Linux, Mac and Windows from the start as well!

Looks and sounds awesome, they want £100,042 to do it (yes it's a UK based game now Kickstarter is available in the UK).

Maia is currently in early alpha. A playable release will be available as soon as mid January. The game will run on Windows, Mac and Linux and have absolutely no DRM.

The game will ship in summer 2013. After that, development will continue indefinitely, with regular updates, and swathes of new content every month. Article taken from

looks like a cool game indeed. also noticed that kickstarter uk does not use amazon as payment service but instead you need to enter you cc info on kickstarter.

Pledged. I always wanted to make a game simulator of a space colony... in the universe of Aliens (the movie). This may not be exactly it, but at least it's inspired by the films. Hopefully, they will make it fully moddable.

QuoteThe assets will be easily decompilable and everything that can be will be editable for modders. I'll also release all my tools and scripts.
They will still be copyrighted though so not really public domain no. I wont rule that out for the future though.
