Spiritfarer follows Stella and her cat Daffodil who are chosen to take on the mantle of ‘Spiritfarer’, as Charon (Death) goes into retirement. Self-described as a “cosy management game about dying,” the Spiritfarer is tasked with helping lost souls in the afterlife move on and come to terms with their past.
You manage a ship which you expand and build upon as as more souls decide to come on board. Each anthropomorphic soul comes with their own interests, unique traits and needs that you will need to manage for the duration of their stay. The connections you make are at the heart of Spiritfarer, as you learn more about each individual and the complex feelings they have toward their past and what comes next.
As you nurture your passengers by fulfilling their requests, giving them hugs, or feeding them their favourite meal – the player has a unique opportunity to work through the process of loss and grief in a way that is ultimately very comforting and rewarding.
