    "It’s been only two months since we started the last engine change, and today we are proud to announce our newest release: Thrive 0.5.0! Yes, it only took us two months to rewrite the whole game in Godot. ... Even better, as long as we don’t need native code, this and future releases should be compatible with Mac!"

    "We threw out the outdated and difficult to maintain old engine and built a new one. Some said it couldn’t be done. They reckoned without the Finnish programming juggernaut that is hhyyrylainen. Based on Leviathan, his own creation, it still uses Ogre for graphics and similar overall architecture, but all scripts were converted from Lua to Angelscript, GUI changed from CEGUI to HTML/CSS (so if you have experience with these languages, we’d love for you to join and help design interfaces) and a ton of background processes like window management and input are different."
