Spiritfarer Lands Today on Consoles and PC
Thunder Lotus Games' anticipated indie title Spiritfarer is making its surprise debut on consoles and PC today with a new trailer.
With its focus on indie games over the past several years, the Nintendo Switch has proven itself to be quite the place for indie devs to release their games. Naturally, it’s also become custom nowadays for Nintendo to have a surprise launch up their sleeves, and that includes the anticipated next title from Thunder Lotus Games, Spiritfarer.
During Nintendo’s latest Indie World broadcast, developer Thunder Lotus Games announced that Spiritfarer is officially launching today across consoles and PC. Alongside the reveal of its release date, the broadcast also included the game’s official launch trailer to give a closer look at what is in store for players.
For those that don’t know about it, Spiritfarer is a “cozy management game” that has players taking on the role of Stella, a spiritfarer that helps transport various creatures and characters through their journey into the afterlife. While the game addresses some heavy themes and topics, the game itself aims to deliver an immersive and thought-provoking journey with stunning animation and visuals.
Thunder Lotus Games has a solid track record with their past titles such as Jotun and Sundered, and from what we’ve seen from Spiritfarer so far has made it a title to look out for this year. Thankfully, with the game out today, players everywhere will get to enjoy its emotional story and profound themes for themselves.
Our own staff writer Cameron Hawkins reviewed Spiritfarer and scored it at a 9.5/10. From his time with the game, Cameron came away impressed by its “beautifully crafted, memorable experience” that takes players on a compelling, profound journey.
Spiritfarer is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, PC, Mac, and Linux.
