Coming to PC and consoles later this yr.
Thunder Lotus Games, the Montreal studio behind Jotun and Sundered, has launched the first correct gameplay trailer for Spiritfarer, its upcoming “cosy management game about dying”.
Spiritfarer casts gamers as Stellar, a ferrymaster to the deceased, charged with roaming the seas and fulfilling the ultimate requests of misplaced souls in order that they could cross on to the afterlife. “Spend relaxing quality time with your spirit passengers,” explains Thunder Lotus, “create lasting memories, and, ultimately, learn how to say goodbye to your cherished friends.”
That interprets to an expertise that takes its cue from a wide range of genres, bringing in conflict-free platforming, farming, fishing, cooking, mining, crafting, and extra. There’s even co-operative play for 2 gamers, with one particular person taking up the position of Daffodil the cat. Some of those parts are giving a mild airing in Spiritfarer’s stunning new trailer under.
Eurogamer’s Emma Kent went hands-on with Spiritfarer at Gamescom and was impressed by its “sincere and comforting approach to a heavy topic”. Martin Robinson dug just a little deeper later within the yr, chatting with Thunder Lotus about its previous and its ambitions for its latest game.
Those desirous to set sail with the souls of the departed can have their probability to take action when Spiritfarer involves Xbox One and PC (together with Game Pass), PS4, and Switch later this yr.
