Just a quick update...
A few weeks ago I went down to Bath to show the lovely chaps at PC Gamer magazine the game. We did an interview and received a whole two page spread in July's issue!
This week I'll be showing an alpha build of Maia at an alternative E3 event in London called Etoo. The event is ticketed, but there may be some cancellations so it's probably worth keeping an eye on. If anyone is coming you'll be able to have a hands-on go with the next alpha! If you can't make it, keep an eye out for the live stream where I will be making an appearance!
The 0.27 alpha will go up as soon as I am back on Thursday. Then on Friday I will release 0.28 as a bug fix patch for small problems found by the alpha testers.
A lot of people are asking if Maia will be at Rezzed, the PC games show run by Eurogamer and RockPaperShotgun. I didn't manage to get the game into the indie showcase, and decided that purchasing a whole booth would be a little too expensive and would distort my development efforts too much (putting together builds for demonstrations involves a lot of rushed code that adds bugs and work). I will however be there on the Saturday, roaming the expo floor, if you'd like to say hello. I may even have a few Maia trinkets to give away.
Pretty much everyone should now have their alpha keys. Drop a line on Support@Maiagame.com if you haven't received yours. People who hadn't responded to the surveys by the time the mail-outs went out will need to contact me to generate a key for them.
