How to play
In Thrive the game. your objective is to evolve and out compete all other species near you. every round 10 EP (Evolution points) are given out to each individual player to use to evolve their cell. these EP’s can be saved (keep in mind only half of the saved EP’s are transferred) and eventually used to buy organelles for your species.
In this game there are 5 major ‘bars’ you need to watch out for. Size, Defence, Attack, Speed, And population.
Size determines two things. who you can eat, and who cant eat you. a size 2 cell would be able to predate on a size 1 cell for example. and in order to level up in size you must place 5 cytoplasm.
Defense is similar to size, as it determines who can eat you. it acts as a sort of barrier that must be crossed before a cell can predate on your species. for example a size 2 cell will not be able to eat a size 1 cell with 1 defense. its quite simple subtraction really.
Attack is also fairly similar to size as it determines who/what your species can predate. it can be used to subtract defense and size. for example a size 1 cell with 3 attack would be able to take down a size 2 cell with 1 defense.
Speed determines your species priority when being given food. Autotrophic organisms that feast of chemical stew will undoubtedly need to evolve higher speed when there is more competition as creatures with higher speed will therefor be given more food and will be more likely to prosper.
predatory cells will also require speed levels that are equal or higher than their prey.
Finally, population determines how good your species is doing. every population point requires 1 piece of food. if this point is not gotten, the amount of unfed population in your species will die off.
predators also require food. and this can be achieved by killing a population. unlike autotrophs that automatically get food. the player of a predator must pick a species population they want to attack. when determining how much food a predator gets when killing a population you have to look at the species size. a cell with 2 size will give 2 points of food for 2 population
in order to increase population. all your population must be fed
Currently the game is taking place in Thermal vents of the planet Droria
Here is a graph of the food in the thermal vents
10 Glucose (+2 glucose every round)
8 Iron (+8 Iron every round)
10 Hydrogen Sulfide (+20 every round)
Now you wanna see what organelles you have to work with? well boy are you in luck. after some planning we now have a whopping 24 organelles to work with. You can read all about these organelles down here:
Billions of years ago:
the big bang, a giant burst of energy which resulted in the birth of the star Kio-3o9. this star just so happened to be inhabited by an earth like planet. Its name is Droria. placed in a location where liquid water is able to exist. Droria began to sprout life. simple unicellular blobs containing something akin to DNA began to float around nearby hydro thermal vents. until a particular creature came into being. wiping out all previous life on said planet. it was called luca.
Little did this small creature know. that it was just the beginning.
If anyone wants to evolve luca, here is a template you need to follow.
new branch?: (specify if this is a new species which has branched off from luca or if this is lucas next evolution)
