Spiritfarer is a relaxing game that invited me on a journey to meet myself.

Spiritfarer is a unique title within its style, if we could include it in a category that is not simply “indie”, since it covers so many fields, it should own its unique section. With a 30 to 40 hours long duration, it's a game you will really love as it's mechanics are far from being repetitive.

Spiritfarer is a beautiful and heart-warming 2D-platforming management game that will give you a different perspective on death. On top of that, it will deliver one of the best experiences of your life.

Spiritfarer is a game about collecting a ton of resources at a frantic pace and exploring a vast map solving quests, but likewise it is also a beautiful bittersweet tale about life and death. The games explore themes like love, affection, goodbyes, pains, insecurities and new beginnings in a way that we don't see much in the world of video games. Best of all, this beautiful story takes place within a legitimately innovative, fun and well-made game. Do not waste time, Spiritfarer is one of the best games of the year for Switch.

Spiritfarer is an amazing management indie game to relax to, all while helping players deal, cope, and reflect on death. The game’s colors are awe-inspiring and the soundtrack immediately puts you at ease. Despite the game’s heavy theme of dealing with death, Spiritfarer is a wonderful game.

The fact Spiritfarer made me think about the meaning of life and death, had me cry in mixed sadness and joy at remembering people I’ve lost, and, more importantly, the memories I’ll always keep of them, is probably the best recommendation I can imagine giving any piece of media.

Spiritfarer has the body of a seafaring exploration game, the mind of a management sim, and the soul of an emotional journey depicting love, loss, and grief. With gorgeous visuals and a soundtrack to match, Spiritfarer is pleasing to the senses while providing a core loop that’s easy to get lost in.

A beautiful story in a beautiful world. It's simple, but has lots of feeling and imagination to it, and it's full of memorable moments. On the other hand, it can feel a bit of a chore at times, and drags on for a bit too long.

Perhaps the best thing of all is how Spiritfarer builds, grows, and ends.
