Thunder Lotus Games has released Spiritfarer‘s development roadmap for 2021. It includes three free updates, including four new cute ghosts and a whole lot more.
As described on a Thunder Lotus blog, the first of the three updates is called Lily and will arrive in Spring 2021.
This update brings improvements in quality of life and an improved co-op system with a brand new user interface and the ability to fish together. Stella also gets some more story content.
As Stella is getting more familiar with the job of Spiritfaring, she starts to uncover some of her memories, which are starting to blossom as wondrous flowers over her cabin. These flowers house butterflies that roost to form our new spirit friend : Lily, Stella’s younger sister.
Lily, who is clearly the new ghost for this update, is the only ghost active at night. “Just as she had been a shining presence in her big sister’s life, here she illuminates the night and lets you navigate your boat even when it’s dark! Isn’t that convenient!”
Due to being released in the summer of 2021, the Beverly update will add new boat buildings, collectibles, recipes, and quality of life improvements. Beverly is the new ghost and is Stella’s old neighbor. She feels lonely and happy to have someone to talk to about the past finally.
The new station being introduced is called the Archive Room and will allow players to inspect the new type of collectible item known as Acetate Sheets.
The latest update for 2021 is called the Jackie & Daria Update and released in the fall. This update includes a new island to explore, new boat buildings and resources, and a new event.
The new island is home to a dilapidated hospital and two new ghosts. The ghosts belong to an overworked caregiver named Jackie and patient Daria. Stella likes to lend them both a hand.
