Good evening everyone!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I've just launched a full Greenlight campaign for Maia along with a new atmospheric trailer for the upcoming 0.29 alpha.

I'd like you to vote for it.

Please share it with everyone you can!

      you can build a pretty good barebones ATI machine for like £400, ATI are running a thing at the moment where you get something like £150 worth of games if you buy certain ATI Graphics Cards, it's probably worth it just to build one. Besides, you're a developer, you need things like that for development reasons.

      @Simon - you could probably a find a volunteer with ATI hardware to let you remote in and test things on their machine...? Probably more of a PITA than just setting one up yourself, I suppose, but it might save a few pennies.

      One more vote from me.
      My steam account is full of junk that I bought during sales.
      This would make one more awesome game in there to balance things out.

      Done, Done & Done, Best of luck Simon.

      Looks like we are doing well!

      I've posted some stats on the forum:…

      Yeah. There was a 0.28 for Mac and Linux, but they were just too crashy due to some of the bugs from all the new content that I rushed in for Rezzed. I didn't want to release anything that might screw up someones computer. 0.29 will hopefully overcome most of those bugs. I may have to buy an ATI desktop to get to the root of the black screen bugs, they are strange and irritatingly elusive.

      Really excited by the progress on Maia! Will definitely vote on Greenlight.

      To echo the sentiment of Danny below- any chance of a Mac release for 0.29?

    12. Chris Brind on July 3, 2013

      Done - hope this means we're getting steam keys. :D

      Nice looking trailer, and I cant wait for the added UI stuff for the next alpha release!

    16. DP on July 3, 2013

      Paul, no way- I would be personally offended if this was on Steam Early Access. I mean as a backer I would think you feel the same way. This is our game and only our game, how dare Simon try and sell it to people outside of this DEDICATED group.

      I am being entirely sarcastic of course (this Double Fine Early Access nonsense is just that- nonsense). I also vote for Early Access. This kind of game is actually quite perfect for it!

      Here's hoping we get Mac alphas soon :).

    17. Paul on July 3, 2013

      Ah, didn't know that. Good news :)

    18. Steve S on July 3, 2013

      Voted - I'll get to work harassing friends to do the same!

    19. Simon Roth Creator on July 3, 2013

      Paul: Steam early access requires Greenlight. If we get Greenlit we will work to get into Steams alpha program. :)

    20. Paul on July 3, 2013

      Voted. Would it not be easier to go through Steam Early Access though? The games I've seen hesitant to do this so far have been because of the alpha/beta access, that had only been granted to certain higher level backers.

      But since Maia had alpha access at even the cheapest tier, I doubt this would be a problem. You could just give keys to Kickstarter backers, then let anyone else interested buy it for whatever price you set through Steam Early Access.

    21. Simon Roth Creator on July 3, 2013

      Anders - Perhaps, but the fact of the matter is, we are selling the game to people who do already know about it. Drive-by traffic on Greenlight is minimal, and our Kickstarter backers alone can probably get us enough votes... So this trailer is just a bit of fun to show off some of the new stuff in the game.

    22. Anders Mellon Skov Hermansen on July 3, 2013

      I'll be honest - The trailer does the game a disservice. Those first thirty seconds or so make it seems like it is a space horror/suspense game. If I hadn't already known about the game I would probably have turned it off before the gameplay appeared (mostly because I completely avoid horror games, but the point still stands imo)

      You finally bit that token $100 bullet.
