Maia's creator, Simon Roth, describes Maia as "Dungeon Keeper meets Dwarf Fortress." It's a god game in which you must keep your colonists and their loyal helper robots alive on a hostile world. A poisonous atmosphere, intelligent but fearsome monsters, starvation and madness are a few of the problems you'll contend with as you fight to build a sustainable settlement. The intense depth of the simulation extends to the speed at which plants grow. Colonists' mood will be affected by the precise timbre of the lighting you employ, and all of your charges can develop fears, phobias and attachments that will cause surprise problems and create emergent stories.
