Sci-fi God Game Maia reaches Kickstarter funding goal

Sci-fi god game Maia has beat its Kickstarter funding goal of 100,042 British pounds over the weekend, gaining more 116,000 British pounds from over 6000 backers.

Developer Simon Roth, a U.K.-based indie game designer who worked alongside Terry Cavanagh on VVVVVV, first brought the god game to the popular crowdfunding website on Nov. 3. The game is set in the year 2113 when the human race has begun to explore and colonize a planet called Maia. In Maia, players must keep colonists safe and manage mining, home construction, as well as provide protection.

The game, which is currently in early alpha, is scheduled to ship in summer 2013. As of press time, the title is funded 116,730 British pounds, with 6,448 backs in total. There is still fifty hours to go until the project's Kickstarter campaign reaches its end. The game will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux without DRM. A playable version will be available in mid-January.
