Update #11

Indie Hug Bundle

The best thing about being an indie developer, is the amazing community full of really, really fantastic people. Today those indies have come forward to help Maia and donated copies of their games to help the cause.

Anyone pledging (or who has already pledged) £56 or more now gets a whole bundle of fantastic indie games and I'm also throwing in an extra copy of Maia!

The games:

Project Zomboid by The Indie Stone

These guys are awesome and Zomboid is going to be an instant classic.

VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh


I worked on the port of this! It's a truly excellent game.

Revenge of the Titans by Puppy Games

I've clocked twenty hours in this game. It's the best RTS/Tower defence mixup that exists.

Death Ray Manta by Rob Fearon

Wonderful retro madness! I could try and explain it, but just watch the video. Look at it!Look at it!

Battle Cave by Dull Dude

Battle Cave is an unreleased procedural dungeon platformer. I have a feeling it's going to be awesome.

I can't thank these guys enough for their generosity. This is just so amazing, I'm speechless.

      I wish you the best of luck! This game truly looks like a work of art, and I am very much looking forward to experience it.

      I hope you reach the goal!

      Best regards from Brasil!

      Well, TB just posted a video on this, so that's good publicity.

      @Simon - I just hope it's enough. 25% left to go, and only three days to do it, so the more attention, the better. I'm a bit worried it's not going to be enough, is all.

      This is awesome, but unfortunately, the people that read these news are usually already pledging. This might raise the average pledge a bit, but I'm not sure it would be enough.

      What would be more awesome? If all of these posted about Maia on their blogs/news, and got new people, who don't know about the project, to pay attention. That might just be the final push that is needed.

      I'd recommend talking to them about that. You could really do with some more recognition.
