Obviously, it draws a lot of graphical inspiration from Spore's Cell Stage (googly-eyed aquatic creatures, whimsical special abilities, etc). However, it has some unique charm to it that sends me good vibes. Maybe it's how genuinely upbeat everything is.
The editor looks pretty cool (not particularly malleable, but VR is VR), and the 3D control looks pretty fluid.
Of course, it's nothing that Thrive can get any ideas from, but it's nice to know that the evolution genre's got some life to it.
