Creators of unique hand-drawn indie games Thunder Lotus have announced their third production: Spiritfarer. Revealing the game during today’s Xbox E3 Briefing, Thunder Lotus describes Spiritfarer as a "cozy management game about dying", underscoring the developer’s aim to deliver an experience that is both entertaining and emotionally moving. 

In Spiritfarer, you play Stella, ferrymaster to the deceased. 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.

Spitfarer is the third Thunder Lotus productions, after Jotun (2015) and Sundered (2017). In order to explore other game genres and tackle more mature themes and a richer narrative framework, the studio brought on AAA-veteran Creative Director Nicolas Guérin to helm Spiritfarer.

"As soon as I heard the initial idea, it became clear to me that Thunder Lotus was where I belonged" said Guérin in a prepared statement. "It was as if it finally made sense, as if games could really be what I always thought they had to be. And this one would be just that. A game that matters, an experience that means something and has a purpose."

Spiritfarer is scheduled for release in 2020 with Xbox Game Pass for PC and Console, Xbox One, Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
