Critic Reviews for Spiritfarer
A thought-provoking and bittersweet adventure that understands that death is part of living.
Spiritfarer's gorgeous mix of an exciting action-platformer and a touching town manager is a journey worth savoring.
By marrying metroidvania, management sim and a good dose of kindness, Spiritfarer manages to feel simultaneously familiar and refreshing.
Spiritfarer taps into the fun of farming/lifestyle simulations, but adds a unique story layer that sets it apart
Spirifarer is an excellent 2D-platformer and management game, but moreover it's a beautiful and joyous journey about caring for others and coming to terms with death and saying goodbye.
Spiritfarer is a cozy game about helping spirits move on. Its wide scope of systems and resources can sometimes get in its own way, but when working in harmony it unveils a touching narrative, all the while adorned by gorgeous art. Best enjoyed in small pieces, Spiritfarer is a warm and inviting world to get lost in, with the occasional emotional gut punch for good measure.
Spiritfarer has a soft, caring, bittersweet tone that I've rarely encountered in video games. For a game all about death and dying, I only ever felt calm and relaxed when playing it. The management gameplay is varied and engaging, and even though the scope if it leads to the game getting a bit too long in the tooth, it helps connect the incredibly emotional story beats together so well. Mix that up with its beautiful art style and enchanting music, and you've got one of the most emotional management games I've ever played.
Those who will patiently (and happily) put in the time to building their ferries and cooking for their spirit friends will be rewarded with snippets of story that might stay with them longer than they expect.
