About Revolutionary Games

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 using 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, association running fees etc.. 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:

Note that the Devbuilds are currently only for 64-bit Windows and 64-bit Linux. This decision was made as additional platforms that need to be built for take up time in processing new commits, and some amount of storage space. Additionally we may not be able to get the full game to fit within the constraints of 32-bit memory limits. However, if there is enough demand additional platforms could be added.

This Patreon is ran by Revolutionary Games Studio ry, an association founded in Finland. It's primary goal is to support the development and community around Thrive. The association is a non-profit entity and doesn't collect money to make a profit to its owners or members.
