Progress Update 12/7/2019

There are some sad news this week, our lead Microbe stage designer and also Theory team lead TJWhale, has left the team. For those who didn’t know TJ made a lot of prototypes for the game, some of them have been featured in the PUs. Recently he also made the Planet and Star Generator and in general has been a huge part of Thrive while leading our team. He will be missed.

While these are bad news we have to move forward. We opened a thread for deciding who’s going to be the new Lead Designer and Theory team lead, positions that are still vacant, it’s an intimidating task after all so they might remain empty for a while. We are open to accept new team members for these possitions, if you’ve designed games in the past or have the necessary knowledge you can apply to the team here.

But don’t worry, bacause progress will keep on! And while some leave others come. This week we have a new artist on the team and you can even see his art on this post.
