Spiritfarer is one of those games that you can't help but call "wholesome". It's all about ferrying the dead to their final resting place, but only after completing various tasks and fetch quests that help them fulfil their last requests. Sometimes, it's something as simple as tasting a particular food again before they go; other times, it's a lot more complicated, and it will make you sob like a tiny baby.
The physical edition is quite lovely, representing the game's appealingly soft aesthetic with a 96-page art book, stickers, postcards, and the game's soundtrack, composed by Max LL.
Orders will be fulfilled by GAME and Amazon in the UK; Best Buy, GameStop, and Amazon in the US; and in Australia, you can choose between JB Hi Fi, The Gamesmen, EB Games, and Amazon. To find out whether the game is available in your country, head to iam8bit's website and select it from the top-left menu. You'll be able to see the prices once you select the retailer, but it looks like the game on Switch will be $34.99 US, €34.99, and £29.99.
Currently £27.99 on Amazon. Only £4 over the eShop price.
Edit: £24.85 on Base. Pays to shop around.
To clarify, pre-orders have been open a while, today is the release date.
I'm expecting my copy to arrive within an hour or two now.
iam8bit's site also suggests that a Collector's Edition is planned, but not yet finalized.
@ZestyFork there's a lot of waiting, yeah. I liked the art and music very much, a cool little game. double dipping is getting beyond ridiculous at this point
Mine comes in the mail tomorrow.
It was a nice idea at the start, but perhaps outstayed it's welcome with a bit to much back and forth searching the map.
This game is great. Super relaxing, chill, and also beautiful.
I’ve been wanting to give it a whirl
Think I'll go physical on this one.
I really wanted to like this game, but got bored really quickly. Looks like a nice edition for those who haven’t tried it yet and enjoy slow games.
@ZestyFork Different strokes. It was my game of the year last year and one of the most affecting games I've ever played.
