Progress Update 04/22/2023

Only one week remains before the release of Thrive 0.6.2, and that means it’s time for our latest pre-release build! If you are interested in helping us find any bugs or problems before the official release, you may join us in testing the release-candidate here.

Development has been largely centered around the progression of our later stage prototypes this week, but we still have some neat new additions regardless! Players will find that our compound balance information will be much more intuitive and understandable, and compound clouds are far more visible. This and more, can be found in the release candidate.

With only one week remaining before release, all further development will be focused on bugfixes and balance changes as needed.
