Spiritfarer post-launch updates roadmap

Thunder Lotus Games has announced plans to release three major updates for Spiritfarer, the “cozy management game about dying,” in the spring, summer, and fall.

“We’re tremendously happy with the praise Spiritfarer has received since launch,” said Spiritfarer creative director Nicolas Guerin in a press release. “It’s attracted a very passionate group of fans too, which is great because the team is excited to keep supporting the game with new content this year! I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank our fans for their crucial input as we explored various ideas for new Spiritfarer content. Your feedback definitely helped us zero in on the best path forward for the project!”

The full roadmap of updates is as follows:

■ Spring 2021 Update: Lily

  • New spirit
  • More Stella story content
  • Improve cooperative play
  • Quality of life improvements

As Stella is getting more familiar with the job of Spiritfaring, she starts to uncover some of her memories, which are starting to blossom as wondrous flowers over her cabin. These flowers house butterflies that roost to form our new spirit friend: Lily, Stella’s younger sister.

Lily is the only spirit that’s active during the night. Just as she had been a shining presence in her big sister’s life, here she illuminates the night and lets you navigate your boat even when it’s dark! Isn’t that convenient!

In addition to adding Lily, we’ll be enhancing the cooperative experience with a brand new user interface and the ability to do some coop fishing! All that and more!

■ Summer 2021 Update: Beverly

  • New spirit
  • New boat buildings, collectibles, and recipes
  • Quality of life improvements

While visiting Oxbury, Stella is accosted by a stranger who turns out to be her old neighbor Beverly! She’s been feeling rather lonely on this island and couldn’t be happier to have finally found someone to talk to about the past!

Speaking of the past, remember Overhead Projectors? To keep in line with our walk down memory lane, we’ll be introducing a new station called the Archive Room, where you’ll be able to inspect a brand new set of collectibles called Acetate Sheets. Who knows what kind of information these wonderful transparent sheets might hold!

We also have a plethora of quality of life tweaks in the works—full details to come at a later date!

■ Fall 2021 Update: Jackie and Daria

  • Two new spirits
  • New island
  • New boat buildings and resources
  • New event

Out of the blue, Stella receives coordinates for a new island that houses a run-down hospital. There, she’ll meet two spirits: Jackie, the caretaker, and Daria, his main patient. Seeing that Jackie is overworked, Stella decides to lend him a hand.

You’ll be able to explore a whole new island, interact with two new spirits and experience a brand new event! Additional details coming later this year!

Spiritfarer is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GOG, as well as Xbox Game Pass for PC and Console.
