Simon Roth's sci-fi god game, Maia, will launch via Steam Early Access Dec. 3, the developer announced via Kickstarter.
Maia takes place in the year 2113; the human race is colonizing and exploring a planet known as Maia. Players are charged with the task of keeping colonists safe and managing their day-to-day duties. Roth wrote that though the launch is still a few months away, the team doesn't "want to rush into it."
"With the direct pre-orders having scored us £12,000 or so, we have a little more leeway and have no immediate need for a big cash injection," Roth wrote.
"There's a lot of work to go in before we release the alpha to the masses. Although getting everyone of you Steam keys is very important to me, having anywhere from ten to a hundred thousand new testers overnight would be a bit much to handle."
Maia reached its Kickstarter goal last November. The game is expected to launch for Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
