Thunder Lotus are the creators of unique hand drawn indie games. And as a result, they have released Spiritfarer. Which is also an acclimed cozy management game about dying. The game is available now and to my surprise, without a release week discount. The game does have 96% Very Positive reviews on Steam.
In Spiritfarer you play Stella, a ferrymaster to the deceased. Then you build a boat to explore the world. While going on to befriend and care for spirits before finally releasing them into the afterlife. Farm, mine, fish, harvest, cook, and craft your way across mystical seas. Join the adventure as Daffodil the cat. All in two-player cooperative play. So you can spend relaxing quality time with your spirit passengers. Maybe even create some lasting memories. Then, ultimately, learn how to say goodbye to your cherished friends in Spiritfarer.
Since having to wait for Spiritfarer’s release. The interest has certainly grown steadily. Right from first reveal at E3 2019, though recent positive write ups. Thunder Lotus did not announce a more precise launch window for “2020”. So the decision to stealthily reveal its immediate release. Likewise the eye- atching animated trailer will no doubt come as a pleasant surprise to many.

“I will say that it’s been pretty tough keeping this launch under the radar!” admits Spiritfarer Creative Director Nicolas Guérin. “We took what is by far our biggest, most ambitious production yet. And decided to up the ante by releasing Spiritfarer simultaneously on almost every system under the sun. Our fans have been so patient. Waiting for us just to say ‘when’. Well, I’m happy to tell them: the time is now! Spiritfarer is a game that’s near and dear to our hearts. So we hope you’ll set sail with us.”
