Maia - a Dungeon Keeper style god game


Recommended Posts

Folks, I'm not sure if many of you are avid Dungeon Keeper players, but those of you who are, and who waited for another game that follows DK's footsteps, will be delighted to know that there is a campaign on Kickstarter for a new god game called Maia. Instead of being a medieval dungeon, the game will take place on a far-away planet where resident flora/fauna is so aggressive that the colonists had to move underground. Here, they will dig rocks, create buildings and fight against intruders.

The technical previews look promising, so if you'd like to support the game, please back the campaign.

Well, if you watch the last video you'll notice that you can get your I.M.P. robots to dig out rooms just like in DK. You also have chickens that, as I understand it, as used for the same purpose as in DK: for food. And you control The Hand and can manipulate stuff with it, place lights etc. Please note that this is a pre-alpha demo, hardly more than a demonstration of the basic tech. Since the dev is an avid fan of god games and of DK in particular, I very much imagine he will make his game at least similar not only in the way it's played, but also in terms of humour.


But you are right, this is a science-fiction setting, maybe I should have emphasized this.

      Hello, Since this track is originally from TDM,i think it's better to ask here than TTLG. Do you guys have the full version of this ambient track?

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
