Spiritfarer, the “cozy management game about dying,” has surpassed 500,000 copies sold worldwide, developer Thunder Lotus Games announced.
Additionally, The “Lily” update—the first of three free updates planned for release in 2021—is now available across all platforms. It adds new character of Lily the Butterfly Spirit to guide the player through several scenes, which add depth and detail to main character Stella’s story, as well as improvements to local cooperative play and various bug fixes.
“As ever, the updates we’re bringing to Spiritfarer this year are all about the fans—those who helped make this our studio’s most popular game ever,” said creative director Nicolas Guerin in a press release. “We wanted to keep the Lily update small, to address 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; 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 milestone 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!”
