Progress Update 10/17/2020

Time to discuss the future of Thrive again. As you know, we had the 0.5.2 release last week and as always we discussed what is going to be included in the next release.

Last time we talked about binding agents and we want to work on them again in this version. Other new features include improving saving, improving balance, more work on the spawn system and working on the procedural patch map, among other things.

We couldn’t have a trailer for the new version ready on time, so in case you didn’t see it already here it is:
