Update #20

938129048 km

Happy new year everyone!

You've probably backed it already, but the War For The Overworld team are in their final few hours. If you are looking to scratch your itch for some more Dungeon Keeper, I'd certainly check it out. It would be fantastic if they managed to get Richard Ridings for their campaign voice over.

Our own fund raising on Indiegogo has just four days left. So spread the word about that too!

On the Maia front I'm currently getting the first Mac build of the engine up and running, and also testing the first HiDPI settings. Rudi, James and Kris are ploughing on with the art side of things and Nick is doing something exciting/worrying with dictaphones.

We have the heads of six Marvin tier supporters in the pipeline, and are waiting on getting the other twenty or so. There will be an email going out to the Preston tier supporters shortly, with information about the reference we will require to get their pets in to the game. I am also currently getting fresh quotes for the poster printing. I've decided to get them in a slightly larger size because I want them to be extra awesome.

Maia is popping up in a few articles of sites looking forward to 2013. Here RPS and PCGamer's. We are also given a mention is this months Edge Magazine! 

More to come very soon!

Thanks

-Simon

      Already backing War for the Overworld btw. :) Can't wait for them to finish, although we won't get the original mentor most likely, it'll be close, but probably not over.

      Other than that this number is a rough estimate of the optical radius of the Star Betelgeuse, wolfram Alpha isn't telling me much. ;) Although Wolfram Alpha estimates the orbital length at 933900000 km. ^_^

      It's a rough calculation of how far we have traveled around the sun this year. :)

      That's roughly the distance from the sun to between Jupiter and Saturn

      Yeah, I backed it the moment it appeared as I was following their progress. Also cannot wait to get access to the alpha once its out of Maia either :P

      2013 looks to be a good year for games

      Will you be adding a paypal "shop" so we can buy some upgrades as the game develops (swag, game expansions etc.)
