Progress Update 9/17/2022

Only one week remains before the release of 0.5.10, and so we are now entering a period of feature freeze where no additional features will be developed for the update. Efforts are instead directed to solving any issues that may be discovered through player testing.

The 0.5.10 release candidate is now available to everyone, so if you are interested in providing feedback, please download the candidate and tell us what you think!

An important notice for players locally building Thrive code; When cloning Thrive, you will now need additional materials in order to properly build the game. Please read more here.
