I’ve been a long time lurker since I’d say 2016 when I first got into Spore. I managed to find Thrive through watching Spore modding youtube videos. I then went through Oliver Lugg’s OST for Thrive which really hooked me on the idea of the game.
I will always remember those old renders. (Disturbance is my favourite piece of concept art!)
I think at one point I made an account on the old forums, but never posted! I recently came back to see the progress on the game, as I always do every year or so, and was quite surprised on the progress.
Thought I should start getting into the community more rather than being a lurker.
