As an alternative to joining the team you can support Thrive development by donating. Donations will support future Thrive development. Due to Finnish law regarding donations, we can only accept donations while we have an active donation collecting permit. See below on this page for details regarding donations. If donations aren’t currently accepted or as a monthly alternative, you can check out our Patreon. If you prefer a one-time monetary support option, you can now get Thrive on Steam or Itch, links are on our Downloads page.
There is currently no active donation campaign so we can’t currently accept donations. We will hold another one when there is enough interest from potential donators.
In order to be listed on our list of donators (which will be included in the game credits once credits are added to the game) please make a donation of at least about 20€ (it’s enough if it is close enough as currency conversions etc. might slightly alter the amount). And include the following text credit as: Your Name as a message. You will then, once your donation is noticed, be added to the list of donators with your preferred name. Your donation amount will not appear in the list of donators.
There was a donation campaign ending 11.9.2021. Donations in that campaign went towards the primary purpose of paying for server fees of the forums, collaboration tools, and other services of Revolutionary Games Studio. Additionally donation use purpose was to pay salaries for employees that work on Thrive that give ownership of their work to the association, which will redistribute this code under an open source license or an equivalent license (except for parts where this can’t be done due to the distribution channel of the game). Secondary backup purpose that the donations would be used for, if they can’t be used for the primary purpose, was using a service like Bountrysource to further the development of Thrive. A summary of the funds collected and their use is on our forums. Pienkeräysnumero (collecting permit number): RA/2021/877
