Progress Update 9/4/2021

This week we have been busy viciously hunting down any bug we find in our continuous efforts in keeping Thrive clean and healthy. But that’s not all we have been up to; We have recently been playing around with turning physics in hopes of providing more engaging gameplay overall.

We would also like to remind everyone that this upcoming week is the last week of our donation campaign, where donators who contribute at least 20€ (23.60$) will have their name included in our game credits in the future, if they so wish. The campaign will end on the 11th (Eastern European Time).
