Hello various species of the Thrive forums! I am dinoman9877! A new use-
Nope. Wait, that's not right. I've been on the forums before. Well, not THESE forums, I was on the forums WAAAAY back in the day, where everything was tinged green and there was a picture of a flying lizard at the top. I miss that flying lizard...
I did take an extremely extended hiatus from the community, because, well...it was one of those times where progress was all but at a standstill. The younger, brasher me decided to jump ship, thinking nothing may come of it. However, I've actually been keeping an eye on Thrive over the past couple years, and just recently got the newest version for the microbe stage.
And heck, as I type this, I have the Shallow Sea theme playing cuz it's freaking gorgeous.
However, I have come back, and some of you may have noticed my first post before I realized I needed to freaking (re)introduce myself. A friend and I are collaborating on a sort of alien life mockumentary journal entry type of deal, and I figured that the forums for a game about evolving alien life would be the perfect place for the story about discovering alien life. I work on the literary aspect, creating the journal entries, while she creates visuals with her, in my opinion, wonderful illustrations. So if you want to see the first part, it's in the Other Creativity section while I wait for her to send me scans of the first drawings.
I hope to be an active participant in the community (again), and, as always, see this game rise to be what Spore should have been!
Welcome to the forums! Its nice to see some old faces come back after some long hiatus's and its even better to hear they're working on stuff that is either inspired by/fits into thrive, anyhow, Welcome back!
Imagination is the essence of Scientific Discovery!
Welcome back !! Anyways as i've already set in the actual mockementary post, i really like your muckumentary, and i'm thinking about doing something similar for a Sci-Fi thingie of mine.... Also i hope i see you around on the forums
