Thunder Lotus announced that their hand-drawn adventure game, Spiritfarer, is launching on Nintendo Switch later today.
Spiritfarer has players take on the role of a ferry master for those who have recently become deceased. The first set of actions is to build a boat to explore the world. During gameplay, players will be able to farm, mine, fish, harvest, cook, and craft in order to make their way across the seas as you tend to the needs of your spirit friends. This is all to see them to the afterlife and it’s a rather emotional journey as you make these memories together all the while knowing one day you’ll need to let them go.
Spiritfarer is being developed by Thunder Lotus, the team behind games like Joton and Sundered, which were both gorgeous looking games. The team now plans on grabbing the emotions of players with this more relaxing journey that focuses on a heavy subject.

Spiritfarer is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam in 2020, we aren’t sure if the release will match with the Switch version.
