A couple months after the release of 0.3.0, we are proud to announce the newest version of Thrive: 0.3.1. Although this update is not as major as the last one and does not have any new gameplay, it is full of features that make it a lot more fun to play.

  • Parallax Background
  • Colored NPC Microbes
  • Symmetry in the Editor
  • Flipped Player Cell (Forward is now up in editor)
  • New .exe Icon
  • Cytoplasm
  • A bunch of bug fixes (Audio, Broken Membrane, No Chloroplast, Flagellum, Species Name)


  • Point mouse to turn
  • WASD to move around
  • Mouse scroll wheel 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
