Spiritfarer sales hit a million ahead of Farewell Edition

Last updated:

Spiritfarer has hit a landmark one million sales across all platforms. That’s exciting news for what is the third game for developer Thunder Lotus, after Jotun and Sundered, and it coincides with the announcement of Spiritfarer: Farewell Edition. 

This complete version of the game will include all the previously introduced DLC characters such as Lily and Beverly, as well as a new duo, Jackie and Daria. Matthew wrote about the last update just a week ago and I honestly can’t believe this game has gone under my radar for so long.

While new physical editions will be available for Playstation 4 and the Nintendo Switch for those looking to have a copy of Spiritfarer to keep as their own in real space, none are being produced for Xbox. That’s too bad as the standard version of the Farewell Edition includes the base game, a collectible postcard and sticker set and digital download codes for the soundtrack and artbook.

However, if you count yourselves among the superfans of the game, a collector’s edition will also be available. You’ll get all those mentioned above along with a full functional Everlight replica, a Constellation Lantern display box and exclusive, reversible cover art by renowned illustrator Aidan Yetman-Michaelson.

If you want to take it a step further, a Vinyl Soundtrack is also available for pre-order that includes 2xLP Vinyl Soundtrack composed by Max LL, featuring album art by Erin Vest and a digital download of the Spiritfarer soundtrack.

The Farewell Edition of Spiritfarer caps off a wonderful sales milestone and with that creative director Nicolas Guérin gave a statement regarding the end of the game’s continued support: 

“I’m extremely proud of what the team has accomplished in crafting the suite of updates, culminating in today’s launch,” writes Guerin. “I don’t have the words to express how grateful I am to the team, the public, and everyone involved in making Spiritfarer what it is today. But it is time now to bid farewell to this world, to let it rest and remember it as the bittersweet beacon of love we had hoped it would be, and how much more it became.”

Quite the send off for such a lovely game. If you missed it, Spiritfarer had a “making of” documentary that went through the thought process of the game’s design and focus. It’s a nice way to look back into what the crew at Thunder Lotus wanted to show, the impact of grief and acceptance within their own lives and have it incorporated in this mellow management game.
