Achievements!

ive recently been inspired by narotiza’s achievement artwork. so ive decided to start making little basic 100x100 pixel art images of certain achievements i personally believe would be viable.

There are 3 types of these achievements.

progression based achievements (easy for casual players. basically handed out to players)

Challenge based achievements (for completionists)

And joke based achievements (to be stumbled upon by chance. not going to have too many since they’ll be purely situational and having too many would be annoying.)

I will continue making these until i get bored of them.

feel free to suggest some. however i wont do all of them. only the ones i think are viable and easy to translate into art.

Ooh! I like this! Those look good. I want to suggest my achievements from the other achievement thread for artwork. These are:

Ferrovore - complete the microbe stage using only rusticyanin
Et tu, Brute? - be killed by a member of your species
Icarus - die from fall damage as a flying creature
How the tables have turned - as an herbivore, kill a carnivore which predates your species
How the turns have tabled - as a carnivore, kill an herbivore which killed a member of your species

Can I make some for this thread? I’ve got a few ideas.

of course, anyone is free to suggest any achievements. whether or not i actually do them depends on how easy they are for me to make and how much sense they actually make. for example if someone were to spam nothing but joke achievements i would probably only do one or two of them.

I meant like actually uploading a photo here instead of suggesting an achievement. But I tried it and it didn’t work so…
My idea for an achievement is “Never-Ending Disco Party” its a challenge based achievement where you have to complete a whole game of Thrive with disco mode on without dying.
Another idea is an achievement called “PhotoSYTHESIS” where you make an animal that has plants growing on it.

@Deathpacitoast I love your style! I think those would be a perfect fit for Thrive! Keep it up, I can’t wait for more amazing artwork!

I’ve got another idea, it’s called “Dev Team” where you meet all the species named after the developers. It’s a sort of joke achievement but it’s also a challenging one as well.

Eh. I don’t think having just a few icons in a pixel art style while the rest of the game is not pixel art, isn’t the best aesthetic fit.

Got a few ideas as well, one of them is called “Gluttonous” and it requires to have all organelles on your cell. Another one is called “wait that is not how you’re supposed to play the game” and it basically needs you to build an underwater structure using your tools in ascension stage, here is a bit of the concept art
