We first checked out Maia in our roundup of the five best-looking PC games on Kickstarter, and now we’re very pleased to report that the weekend has seen the space-colony-sim push over the line and reach their funding goal.

With 53 hours to go, Maia has now cleared £113,715 of its £100,042 goal and unlocked some additional features. Cats and dogs are now in the game (because why not), with a full single-player campaign (rather than just sandbox mode) up next if the drive clears £115,000. Check out the teaser trailer below or hit up the Kickstarter page for more info.

Oooh, looks interesting!

 

” Cats and dogs are now in the game (because why not)”

Because catsplosions. Many a fort has FPS death’d because of them.

 

This is the first Kickstarter I’ve signed up to back.

As an avid lover of sci-fi novels, YES OH YES. Seriously happy that one of these games is finally being made, let’s hope it’s a beautiful blend of base keeping + glorious sci-fi.

Dwarf Fortress is a harsh mistress.

Also Alice, I wouldn’t exactly say stormed through. It very nearly didn’t make it and it got a lot of funding in the last day (I suppose TB helped by putting it on his channel asking people to support for a game that’s like the old dungeon keepers).
