Update #17

Thank You

Wow what a day!

I want to thank everyone for their support over the last few weeks. Without you all, this could have never happened.

The live stream was really great. My apologies for not getting the link out via email, we had a few last minute technical problems. I'll look in to making the streams a regular event, as it's an interesting interactive way to keep you all up to speed with Maia's development.

We didn't quite make it to the robot editor goal, but as I said before, we'll count the Indiegogo donations towards them too. Looking at the current rate, we could have it as soon as next week. I'll put some time aside to spruce up the page and see if we can catch a little more interest.

We probably won't hit the "Telluric Variation" goal of three new planets. I'm going to keep them in mind for a free expansion once we get version 1.0 out the door.

A few people have had problems with their US based banks. If you can't get it sorted, you can use PayPal. If you were a higher tier, drop me an email too, so I can make a note of it.

So what next?

We are going to regroup, sort out the backlog created during the Kickstarter, and ease back into development next week.

We are already working on a revamp for the site that will give everyone an account, allowing them to redeem their keys and downloads for the Indie Hug Bundle. Due to the bundle coming out of the blue it may take us a week or so to get that all in place.

I'll be sorting out the poster printing soon. We'll try to get some more big concept illustrations done so you can have a wider choice of pretty pictures!

Again, thank you to everyone who backed us. You are all fantastic, awesome people with excellent taste!

-Simon

      The market for single player only games has been shrinking quickly over the years, but there are a great many single player only games that i have played in the past which i have enjoyed immensely. Games such as Keeper 2. I was saddened to learn that it was never going to have a proper successor. Dungeons, its supposed spiritual successor was a flop in my opinion, and then i saw this and I HAD TO SUPPORT IT! I am also thankful for TotalBiscuit for bringing my attention to this kick-starter ;b

      I closed my eyes and it was Brian Cox and Douglas Adams selling me a game, how could I say no?

      Its always a pleasure to support a dev who is willing to take the risks the large developers won't and who will carry forward the spirit of some of my favorite kinds of games which are sadly being sidelined these days.

      Good luck with your work!

      Sorry I couldn't contribute more, StarCitizen had left me such a dent in the wallet, but good luck

      I threw money at the screen and it worked. Huzzah!

      Congratulations on getting funded! Good thing TotalBiscuit told me (and, it seems, a few others) about this project. Really excited to see how this'll turn out! =)

      I was wondering, though. Will the robot editor be a purely cosmetic thing, or will the design of a robot have an effect on what it does in the game? Either way, I'm really hoping the Indiegogo donations make the robot editor possible.

      Looking forward to this so much. It was definitely shaky there but I am so glad it eventually surpassed the goal. Can't wait until release!
