Spiritfarer is a game with a lot of moving parts, but most of its elements are well handled. Progression comes at a good pace as you upgrade Stella's ship, her abilities, and build relationships with a colourful crew. The crafting minigames are a weak spot, and the writing doesn't always land, but there's a lot to like about this maritime management title.
What is particularly cute is that two people can play together on one system because Stella is not alone on her journey - her brave cat Daffodil is always by her side. Much of this game is very charming, but in the end, the studio's most convincing quality is once more the game's visual style. However, Spiritfarer definitely has the potential to make a big impression if you take the necessary time to explore the characters and their world.
Spiritfarer is a truly gorgeous game in every aspect. A stunning art style, gorgeously melodic music, and a lighter and less punishing take on the management sim genre make it one of the best indie games of the year and a title that will be remembered for years to come.
