Poznámka: Tato hra dosud není dokončená a během vývoje se může výrazně změnit. Pokud Vás hra nyní nezaujala, zkuste počkat, až bude v další fázi vývoje. Více informací zde.

Zpráva od vývojářů:

Proč předběžný přístup?

“Hi! Thanks for checking out our early access release of Maia. Alpha access gives us the unique opportunity to work with the community and craft the game together. Maia is a game with unprecedented complexity, and developing features directly with our players allows us to refine these intricate game systems to create a world that really feels alive.”

Přibližně jak dlouho bude tato hra v předběžném přístupu?

“We want to keep development hurtling forwards at a steady rate and plan to release update builds once a month as the game progresses. (You'll often see smaller updates go out sooner as we push out important fixes as soon as we have tested them.)

We plan to reach version 0.50 (the full sandbox experience) during July 2015. After that we will be releasing the campaign, extra single player maps and full modding tools over the coming months, whilst refining the game and adding greater depth to the content.”

Jak se bude plná verze lišit od předběžného přístupu?

“We plan for the full version of the game will have a complete single player campaign as well as the current sandbox mode. The campaign will last between 10-18 hours, depending on the player, but we expect the sandbox mode and additional single player maps (and of course mods) to give the player potentially endless replayability.”

V jaké fázi vývoje se hra nachází?

“The game is still very deep in development, so many things might be broken. Sometimes in a rather amusing manner, sometimes... less so. The current sandbox build (0.48) has the core game play of colony building, colonist interaction and base simulation, the best is still to come.”

Změní se cena hry po skončení předběžného přístupu?

“We have priced the game at a reasonable price to avoid people impulse buying the game in it's early state. Once the campaign is in, and the community feels that we have hit the right level of quality, we will be raising the price by around 10% to reflect it.”

Jak plánujete zapojit komunitu do vývoje této hry?

“We try to read every forum post and email sent to us and work hard to consider and incorporate peoples feedback into the game.

You can follow updates and give us feedback on the game via Twitter on @Maia and on forums.maiagame.com. IRC users can join us on #maiagame on Quakenet. If you want to talk directly to me, the developer, I am @Simoroth on Twitter!”

Maia 0.48 Has Ignition!

Maia 0.48 is out! The ignition update bring us a new hazard. Fire!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4kgsfrDkKk&feature=youtu.be

The brand new fire system really adds a challenge to base gameplay. Poorly maintained items will short circuit and catch alight. The fire is simulated realistically using oxygen from the atmosphere, the energy stored in objects and heat transfer between them. Even in an unpressurised room, objects can retain now heat and reignite when oxygen is reintroduced. Lock doors and bulkheads to choke off the air supply or risk letting your colonists try and fight the flames unaided.



Tutorial 2.0

The tutorial has been drastically reworked to provide a softer landing into the game for new players. Get a simple base up and running in five minutes by following the easy steps.



Hydroponics.

The hydroponic plants are now more deeply simulated. Responding realistically to changes in lighting colour and intensity around them. Through simulated photosythesis they produce more breathable air and can now be used in lieu of mechanical atmosphere generation.



Full list of changes:
  • MSAAx4 and MSAAx8 support in the menu. If your GPU is hefty enough to run antialiasing you can now benefit from the extra clarity and detail in the graphics. 
  • Text effects are now also tweakable in the menu. If you had problems reading the text before due to the scan lines or glitching, you will be able to adjust them to your needs.
  • Long planned optimisations to the renderer. For some people they may see as much as a 30% increase in performance and also less lighting tile errors.
  • Balancing for colourblindness. Several colours have been tweaked and information adjusted to make the game more playable.
  • Fire and fire damage added.
  • Space suits can become charred and damaged over time.
  • More placement information, you will get a visual and text warning if interaction points of an object are blocked when in placement mode. If all interaction points are blocked, the object will not be buildable.
  • Interaction point holograms are brighter and more obvious, change colour when blocked.
  • Several unbuildable objects now fixed.
  • Colonists will no longer get stuck placing a flag.
  • Colonists will no longer eat chickens to extinction.
  • Colonists wearing suits will no longer spin on the spot in the airlock.
  • Game config.xml reworked, holds more settings data. Less likely to get corrupted, can rebuild properly if a corruption is detected.
  • Picking game res at startup will pick the desktop res instead of the highest capable res of your monitor.
  • Heat haze glitchyness fixed.
  • Game rendering/lighting optimised, many shader bugs fixed.
  • Reflections optimised.
  • A new email tab. See all your emails, queue them up, right click to dismiss them.
  • Email system's first email is now a quick intro to using it.
  • Emails for deaths, research notifications and other major events.
  • More email variation. New important information may be mentioned by colonists.
  • Sleep is more effective at reducing fatigue.
  • Flywheel system's model changed for easier reading of the lights.
  • Several tweaked models and textures on items like the worklight.
  • Critical AI bugs fixed. AI will now never ignore blueprints.
  • IMPs will prioritize minerals better.
  • The protobirds are now a bit more likely to kill chickens.
  • Colonist lander capsules now work better. No more map glitching and multiple colonists can come down.
  • Colonist lander UI is now never hidden, but is greyed out and a timer provided.
  • New UI fixes and improvements.
  • Loads of new music. Really really awesome synth ambient tracks that will make your spine tingle.
  • Brand new comprehensive tutorial to get new users up and running with the game much faster.
  • Toilets are no longer death traps.
  • Flags have stopped exploding.
  • Level generation is now deterministic so the tutorial will always be on a good world.
  • 30+ major critical or crash bugs fixed.
  • Glitching on older Nvidia hardware fixed.

    Thanks for all the feedback and bug reports. We have a lot of new fixes and features coming. We'll be posting an updated road map here in a few days.

Maia 0.47 Touches down.

Maia 0.47 is here with some big gameplay changes. Here's a video demoing today's build:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oy-VOF7PZx0

New features

The PA system. A stern automated base announcer that warns of incursions into your base perimeter, low atmosphere levels and other hazards facing your poor neglected colonists.



Flywheel energy storage. Conserve your energy using um, the principle of the conservation of energy. Nothing says "safe" like a big hunk of metal spun up to thousands of RPM.

Detailed construction. Colonists will now build new rooms based on your blueprints.



Aggressive protobirds! Protect your chickens and shiny objects from this new spiny menace.



Other new things:
  • Animation system changes. Less teleporting and glitchyness. More fluid and efficient character motion through the world. Less "getting stuck".
  • Save files now hold more data, colonists personalities will be maintained. Lots of small save bugs fixed. Including the much loved "colonist sex flip" bug.
  • Creature AI expanded. See them search out places to sleep and mark their territory.
  • Hydroponics now produce a more accurate (and useful) amount of atmosphere.
  • Multiple airlocks now work much better. Colonists will pick reasonable routes to use them. Good for large bases.
  • Balancing of damage and repair needs for wind turbines and work lights.
  • Door placement based on raycasting. This system will allow arbitrary object placement on the walls. So soon we will have lights, readout screens and clocks to place around your base.
  • Rewritten wall intersection tests. This should fix many of the issues with the AI getting totally stuck and also improve framerate
  • Hunger and fatigue deaths for creatures are now balanced.
  • Colonist needs tweaked for better accuracy, it will also make the game a little easier.
  • Twenty or so crash bugs fixed.
  • IMP wandering off bug fixed. Many rough edges fixed in the IMP code.
  • Improved meshes for all rooms. Unified texture atlases to improve rendering speed.
  • Chicken AI re-added so they will now prefer brighter warmer places.
  • Chickens will also now breath atmosphere.
  • Chicken breeding rate limited a bit more to stop them asphyxiating your whole base when their population explodes.
  • Colonists will prefer eating chicken and hydroponic fruit over rations.
  • Read information about rooms when mousing over them in interaction mode.
  • Skinning is fixed on the main character bodies. No more weird distortions. (Some heads still need updating.)
  • Many other bugs and issues fix that the community reported. Thanks!
That's all for now. As always, some things didn't make it in time for the announcement, so look out for new features popping up over the next week or so!

Informace o hře

Maia is space colony building simulator from independent developer Simon Roth. Guide your colonists as they make planetfall on a hostile alien world and do your best to ensure their survival and safety.

Your Mission


Keep your colonists alive by constructing their off-world habitat from the planets crust and sheltering them from a dangerous and often deadly environment. Your task is to gain a foothold on this strange alien world, building facilities where your colonists can live and work, as well as researching the secrets the planet holds.

Build your Base


To keep your colonists alive, you will need to build rooms for specific tasks. Your colonists need a living area, livestock containment and research lab, among other kinds of rooms. To expand your base further, you can use your IMP Robots to clear out areas of the cave your colonists have chosen to inhabit. The detailed simulation of temperature and atmosphere within the base influence the colonists and their actions.

An Enormous Procedurally-Generated World


Twelve light years from earth, the planet 3452C[Maia] circles Tau Ceti. Its atmosphere is toxic, its surface is ravaged by solar flares and meteor blasts and its unstable crust is constantly shifted by earthquakes. Nevertheless, it is habitable and there is room for you to build your base. The world is currently up to 2km x 2km with multiple levels.

Research and Learn from the Planet to Survive


The hard science fiction featured in the game is based on real technology. Because a lot of the equipment is ocassionally reliable 1970s-style technology, the colonists must also spend their time fixing and upgrading items as they build the base. The creatures that inhabit Maia are also based on real world research.

Dangerous Atmosphere


Manage the atmosphere in your colony with carefully placed airlocks, doors and bulkheads. Keep the air flowing or face the horror of painful asphxiation.

Advanced Colonists AI


Your colonists are real people. Simulated right down to their wants and needs. You must try to keep them happy, and perhaps more importantly, sane.

IMP Robots


Let the IMP robots do all the digging for you. Use these robots to clear out areas so you can build more rooms.

Treacherous Weather Patterns


Maia isn't safe. The weather alone can be deadly. The meteor strikes, seismic activity and solar flares can become risks to your colonists and their equipment.

Genetically Engineered Super Chickens


To survive, your colonists will need to create and manage new sources of food. Introducing the genetically engineered super chicken, the Uberhuhn. With research you will be also able to harness the local fauna and flora to keep the rations stocked.

Custom Engine


Maia's game engine is custom-made by Simon Roth. Exclusively used in Maia, the custom engine has stunning graphics and visual effects.

Immersive Soundtrack

Maia's soundtrack is atmospheric and adaptive, it responds to in-game events and draws you into the Sci Fi aesthetic of the game.

The Inspiration

Taking inspiration from games as diverse as Dungeon Keeper, Theme Hospital and The Sims, Maia also draws from 1970s Sci Fi aesthetic and features a healthy dose of dry, dark humour. It's a mix of strategy, management, construction and terrible deaths on a distant world.

To Come

  • A single player campaign.
  • A first person exploration mode.
  • More indigenous life forms and a functioning food chain.
  • Somewhat sassy computers
  • realistic water and lava simulation.
  • Cats with bee suits.

Get Involved

One of the great things about early access is being able to have players follow along with the games creation. This immediate feedback is extremely valuable to the games development. You can see our updates and give us feedback on the game via Twitter or the forum.
