Spiritfarer

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Spiritfarer is a phenomenal 2D-platformer and management game about helping spirits move on. It is best enjoyed in small bites, but those who will patiently put in the time building their ferries will be rewarded.

Game Info

Spiritfarer is a cozy management game about dying. You play Stella, ferrymaster to the deceased, a Spiritfarer. Build a boat to explore the world, then 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, in two-player cooperative play. Spend relaxing quality time with your spirit passengers, create lasting memories, and, ultimately, learn how to say goodbye to your cherished friends. What will you leave behind?
