For those who love their space colony building games, Maia [Official Site] just got another update that's really quite interesting.
One change that I'm particularly happy with, is the fact that your colonists will now hold items that are related to what they're doing. One of my long-standing gripes with Maia is just not knowing what people are doing. Now, they might hold something like a wrench if they're off to repair something. It's a reasonably small thing, but it ticks a box to make the game feel a little more complete.
The aliens roaming around in Maia also now have a new food source in the form of flying bugs. These bugs use bioluminescence for mating, so they end up finding your lights rather attractive. I really love this addition, it certainly makes the planet feel more alive! It also looks rather awesome in-game.
There's plenty more to it, like optimizations and plenty of bug fixes, so the developer also released an update video to go along with it:
