Progress Update 10/16/2021

We managed to see some excellent progress this week with a fresh burst of activity from our developers, allowing us to cook up quite the sizable sizable devbuild. We have also been putting our heads together to devise our steam and Itch.io releases and decide how we want to make them special.

On the topic of store releases, we are currently assessing Thrive’s required system specifications. If you are interested in helping us with this endeavor, please visit the related thread on our forums here. It is also important to mention that previous contributors to Thrive must sign our CLA in order for us to release Thrive on the steam store.

A special thanks to those who donated during our donation campaign! You may view the results here if you are interested.
