Amazing game. Really good art, nice way to tell a story, making you feel attached to characters in a way I hadn't seen before. It's really relaxing and has a lot of interesting mechanics to feel always entertained, keeping you hooked. There is a lot of stuff to collect, like fish or minerals to build houses or more, a lot of fish to fish, a limited but still nice wardrobe system and a lot more stuff. Only thing I'd say it's bad is probably the controls: it can be played with only the left hand, as you don't have to use the mouse, which I found weird, and the same butten has three funtionalities, so it gets annoying when one triggers and not the other. But it is a pretty minor thing. Recommended.

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 understands that death isn't only when someone isn't around anymore, but encapsulates the feelings and memories you have for a person when they are gone. Some aspects of the world are a little abstract, but the concept and emotions that the studio wanted to get across are crystal clear. Thunder Lotus have managed to create a cosy boat sim that deals with the topics of death and compassion with masterful balance. That's quite an achievement.

Spiritfarer forces you to confront death head-on throughout the entirety of the game's run. You won't find the corpses of your enemies littering the world, and you won't be able to pick up a gun or sword and go on a murder spree. Stella is not the one who dishes out death, but rather helps the dying come to terms with their life before passing on.
