I see Maia has elvolved a lot since 0.25, I cannot wait for April 5! I see you completed the main menu and a lot of sound work, this is cool.

I see you're working on walking with weapons animations, are firearms already implemented in the game?

Sound work isn't on the list yet. I'm still looking at what we will need.

No, but getting the animations in will be the first start to getting there.

Is 5th of April the release date of either trailer or playable alpha? I am a bit frustrated.

Hoping to get a playable alpha out sharpish. However, we will have a Windows engine test build on the forums soon, if you want to mess about with it sooner. :)

Will you be doing something similar to Minecraft or Dwarf Fortress where you release the game in Alpha and then add stuff as you go along?

If the Windows part of the game will be out sooner... when will it be out?

Had a public release yesterday. Went OK but we had some major issues with ATI, but releases will be regular and mixed.

Re: Maia Alpha Milestone Progress 0.26

I only recently came across Maia and what you've done so far looks brilliant, well done!

I see the kickstarter has already closed so I've missed out on the early Alpha release :(

Is there going to be a similar Beta release that I can get in on?

Again, well done to date - it already looks more polished than some boxed games I've paid good money for!
