Thrive is a game about the universe - we want to let you play however you want, make whatever you want, and live however you like. Thrive will be a free, open-source game created by an online community of dedicated volunteers. Our team seeks to accomplish two major goals: create engaging, compelling gameplay that respects our players' intelligence, and remain as accurate as possible in our depiction of known scientific theory.

Finally, the awaited end-of-summer release is here! It's a couple months after the beta that was released back in March, but we managed to squish in a bunch of new features since then and fix 12 game breaking bugs, some of which were here since pre-0.2.3. That means you should have very smooth gameplay with relatively few crashes compared to the old versions. But don't forget to save often (I spent over a week fixing that functionality)!

In this release:

  • Compound Clouds! Enjoy the fluid compounds as they drift through the currents instead of the ancient, discrete particle emitters
  • Continued Linux Support—Ubuntu, Arch, and Fedora should all work
  • Colored Organelles—organelle materials are now tinted to be the same color as the membranes
  • Damage Indicator—the membrane and all organelles now flash red when you take damage
  • Process System—no longer spend hours trying to get 5 reproductase to reproduce only to have your cell get rid of it once vacuole storage are full!
  • Engulfment Indicator—the membrane flashes blue when you engulf another cell (or another cell engulfs you)
  • New biomes—whenever you die, you will be randomly placed into one of 5 new biomes. Discover them all!
  • Endosymbiosis—engulf free-floating chloroplasts and toxin vacuoles repeatedly until you manage to assimilate them and use them for yourself
  • Gameplay Tuning—less MP in the editor, better steering, less ATP consumed, and others...
  • A bunch of bug fixes—most importantly, the save/load button actually works this time, and won't crash the game on you!

Controls:

  • Point mouse to turn
  • WASD to move around
  • Mouse scroll wheel (or +/- keys) to zoom
  • E to release toxins (if you have any)
  • G to engulf other cells (you must be bigger in size)
  • ESC to bring up menu.
  • F2 to switch between microbe stage and microbe editor
  • F4 to save your current gamestate
  • F10 to load your previous saved gamestate
  • F12 to save a name-change
  • Symmetry button between undo and redo in editor
