Roth Explains His Maia Hypothesis


With Britstarter well under way, it's time for me to point to one of the most interesting projects to have appeared, which is Simon Roth's Maia. The project - we've mentioned a few times - proposes a planet-colonising God game which will see players "excavate an underground colony to escape the hostile surface of the world." Needless to say, there's plenty of base-building and colonist-caring staples going to go in there too. It's one of the more promising indie ideas to have brought its pitch to Kickstarter this year. Brit indie Roth cites both 70s sci-fi and Bullfrog-era God games as major influences, both things which make our glands release the Want enzyme. Roth explains himself - somewhat disconcertingly - to camera in the pitch video, which you can see below.
