Maia is a colony building game set in the not-so-distant future. Your colonists make planetfall on a hostile world and you must ensure their survival and their safety, constructing their off-world habitat from almost nothing and sheltering them from a dangerous, often deadly environment.

Vad utvecklarna har att säga:

“Hi! Thanks for checking out our early access release of Maia.

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 (0.40) allows a basic level of colony building, colonist interaction and base simulation, but the best is still to come!

We want to keep development hurtling forwards at a steady rate and plan to release update builds every week (probably on Fridays) as the game progresses.

Alpha access gives us the unique opportunity work with the community to craft the game together. 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 to me, the developer, I am @Simoroth on Twitter!”

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!

Maia 0.46 Splashes Down!

Maia 0.46 is ready to play! Here's a video showing some of the new features.

http://youtu.be/d7WG3gdcCBQ

New features

Behold, Botany! Research the local flora with the new plant sample containers and added research technologies.



Nanoprinters! 3d print new IMP robots to expand your workforce and improve the efficiency of your base!



Bugs squished! Thanks to the help of the community we've killed over 50 bugs in the last month. The game is increasingly stable and glitch free.


Other new things to look out for.
  • Many IMP bugs fixed. No more random wandering off or freak outs.
  • IMPs can now use teamwork, digging is much more efficient.
  • Find your IMPs with the robots button. (bottom left)
  • Rest facilities are now their own need. Colonists will build beds at a much higher priority.
  • 4k resolution crashes and performance issues fixed.
  • Massive optimisations on the CPU. Threading is improved, as is cache coherancy. Running on an Intel i5 you will be able to keep CPU usage under 50% at 60fps.
  • Pathfinding is improved, so less performance spikes.
  • Decent GPU improvements, shader fixes.
  • Loading directly from the menu.
  • Loading speeds are greatly increased as is saving.
  • Ground water levels are now shown, watch puddles form and evaporate.
  • More music tracks.
  • More sounds for common base items to impart more game information via audio.
  • Bodybags! No more treading on rotten corpses.
  • Creature burrows on the surface.
  • Colonist energy usage tweaked. Food values recalculated.
  • Many colonist AI bugs squished. Including the one where half full barrels in the solar still drove the colonists insane.
  • Placeable airlocks.
  • Tutorial updates to point out UI changes.
  • AI delegation is now weighted towards being more needs based. A colonist with a greater need will go for the action first.
  • Lighting is redone for better effect. Less glitches.
  • A few save state bugs fixed.
  • Yosemite support added.
  • Intel GPU shaders optimised for below minimum spec machines.

A few features didn't make the deadline, but as always we will be adding them in the coming weeks. In 0.47 you can expect colonists to show their emotions, write useful base reports and even look forward to a new terrifying creature to sabotage your base!

We'll see you then!

Om detta spel

Maia is a colony building game set in the not-so-distant future. Your colonists make planetfall on a hostile world and you must ensure their survival and their safety, constructing their off-world habitat from almost nothing and sheltering them from a dangerous, often deadly environment.

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 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 that this planet holds.

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. Not everyone is up to the task of off-world colony command. Are you?

Key Features


  • A custom-made game engine with stunning graphics and visual effects.
  • Advanced colonist AI that models behaviour, needs and even mental health.
  • An enormous procedurally-generated world, up to 2km x 2km with multiple levels.
  • An atmospheric and adaptive soundtrack that responds to in-game events.
  • Detailed simulation of base temperature and atmosphere.
  • Meteor strikes, seismic activity and solar flares, among many, many other dangers.
  • Genetically engineered super chickens.
  • Hard science fiction research based on real future tech.
  • Occasionally reliable 1970s-style technology.

To Come


  • Both a sandbox mode and a single-player campaign.
  • A first-person exploration mode.
  • Indigenous life forms and a functioning food chain.
  • Somewhat sassy computers.
  • Realistic water and lava simulation.
  • Cats with bee suits.

Linux and Mac will be supported in the coming week.
