Spiritfarer Lily Update Trailer
“Once again, the updates we’re bringing to Spiritfarer this year is all about the fans. Those who helped make this our studio’s most popular game ever” says Spiritfarer Creative Director Nicolas Guérin. “We wanted to keep the Lily Update small. Addressing the single most common feedback we’ve received from players since launch. Fans want to know more about Stella and what, ultimately, her quest is about. It’s the emotional core of the game. So we wanted to get it right since Lily offers a sweet and personal window onto who Stella is. And we hope the players like what we’ve done with this update. The 500,000 units sold worldwide is huge for us, and felt like a fitting time to add Lily. Meanwhile, we’re putting the finishing touches on the more gameplay heavy updates to come. Stay tuned!”
