Progress Update 4/24/2021

This week we worked on a new in-game concept art gallery that would appear during loading screens. It will be available in the extras menu too and images will have descriptions telling the lore behind them.

We fixed some issues like a bug where cells still existed long after dying and increased the thickness of scrolling bars to make them easier to click on. We also started working on a new GDD for the multicellular stage and we reached $500 on patreon! We are now closer than ever before to have a part time programmer working on Thrive, thanks to everyone who contributed to our game!
