A new Lily Update for Spiritfarer has just gone live, Thunder Lotus Games has announced. Version 1.6 is the first of three free updates planned for the game this year.
Here’s a rundown of what it includes, along with a trailer:
Today’s Lily Update is a small yet important addition to Spiritfarer’s main game. It introduces the new character of Lily the Butterfly Spirit to guide the player through several scenes which add depth and detail to the main character Stella’s story. Additionally, the update brings improvements to the local co-op play and various bug fixes.
Also announced today is that Spiritfarer has surpassed 500,000 units sold worldwide across all systems.
Creative director Nicolas Guérin said of today’s news:
“As ever, the updates we’re bringing to Spiritfarer this year are all about the fans – those who helped make this our studio’s most popular game ever. We wanted to keep the Lily Update small, to address the single most common feedback we’ve received from players since launch: fans want to know more about Stella and what, ultimately, her quest is about. It’s the emotional core of the game, so we wanted to get it right; Lily offers a sweet and personal window onto who Stella is, and we hope the players like what we’ve done with this update. The 500,000 units milestone is huge for us, and felt like a fitting time to add Lily – meanwhile, we’re putting the finishing touches on the more gameplay-heavy updates to come. Stay tuned!”
