Hey look, even more news for you tonight from E3! Thunder Lotus Games (Jotun, Sundered) just announced Spiritfarer, what they're saying is a cozy management game about dying. Okay then, that sounds—odd. I like odd though!

It already has SteamOS + Linux system requirements up on Steam, but that's not always enough. In the description of their brand new trailer on YouTube, is this:

**Available in 2020 with Xbox Game Pass for PC and Console, Xbox One, Windows PC, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, Mac and Linux!**

 There's also their reply to us on Twitter. Hooray! Nice to see it so clearly mentioned. Speaking about the trailer, take a look:

Slightly more about it so you know what the heck is going on:

Spiritfarer is a cozy management game about dying. You play Stella, ferrymaster to the deceased, a Spiritfarer. Build a boat to explore the world, then befriend and care for spirits before finally releasing them into the afterlife. Farm, mine, fish, harvest, cook, and craft your way across mystical seas. Join the adventure as Daffodil the cat, in two-player cooperative play. Spend relaxing quality time with your spirit passengers, create lasting memories, and, ultimately, learn how to say goodbye to your cherished friends. What will you leave behind?

It has a Steam page here you can wishlist/follow it on for release sometime next year.

The animations look like a real treat. Going to definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

It's like Western style Miyazaki stuff. I kept getting these "Spirited away" flashes watching the trailer.
(Uh, and just so we're clear, that's a good thing)

Looks interesting.

However, it would have been mildly amusing if a game about dying was only released on Windows.

Definitely getting the Spirited Away vibes from this. The visuals are gorgeous and it looks absolutely adorable. Definitely going to keep an eye on it.
