Sci-fi god game Maia launches on Steam Greenlight

New trailer released.

Sci-fi colony building game Maia has launched on Steam Greenlight, Valve's platform for working out which games to sell on Steam.

Maia is a god game heavily inspired by the Bullfrog games of the 1990s, such as Dungeon Keeper and Theme Hospital, along with newer entries in the genre such as Dwarf Fortress. It's also inspired by classic sci-fi authors Isaac Asimov and Douglas Adams, as well as 1970s horror Alien.

The gameplay sees you build and manage a colony on a moon-like rock. Expect a 2km x 2km x 2km procedurally-generated world, a sandbox mode and single-player campaign, and a first-person exploration mode.

Last year its creator Simon Roth launched a successful Kickstarter for Maia, raising £140,000.

Today Roth released a new trailer for the game, below, which shows the current alpha build. There's no release date as of yet.
