Colony management simulator Maia will launch on Steam on December 3 via Early Access. The game earned £140,481 ($225,219) on Kickstarter in late November 2012.
The god game has players building an underground colony to avoid hostile creatures on the surface of a planet. Maia's world is procedurally-generated and features both top-down and first-person game modes. Simon Roth, the game's developer, noted that direct pre-orders have already totaled a tidy £12,000 ($19,238).
