My name is Alex (aka CosmicVole), and I'm excited to join the team. I have experience in a number of programming languages including Java, C/C++, C#, and Python. No Lua, but I expect I'll be picking it up. I don't have much experience working with games, but I'd like to change that while helping with Thrive. I'm interested in helping on any part of development where I'm needed.
I'll try to set up a dev build later, and start poking around. I'd also appreciate any guidance about what to start looking at.
