Thrive is an open source evolution simulation game. Play as a microbe on an alien world trying to survive and adapt to your surroundings in order to thrive.

We are now trying Patreon as a way for people without game development skills to help in developing Thrive, by paying money for the exclusive perks offered on this page. With the money we are planning to hire people to develop Thrive, as well as few other things like paying for our web presence. Hiring developers will guarantee progress on Thrive, which has been uncertain in the past.

If you want to support the development of Thrive, but can't use Patreon, you can directly contribute work to the project, see this page:
The game code is licensed under the GPL license and available on Github:

This Patreon page is primarily owned by Henri Hyyryläinen (hhyyrylainen), our lead programmer and overall team manager. In order to combat issues with distributing the money we will be forming a non-profit organization in the future, but we have not done that so we are an unregistered association currently, and our members are personally responsible for legal obligations they take on for the project.
$72 of $500 per month
One part-time developer
This is it, guaranteed progress on Thrive! The development hours made possible by this level will mostly be dedicated to working on new features.
