I can't say that I have been after Sundered. I was a big fan of Jotun. The visuals, soundtrack, and boss fights really compelled me to see that all the way through (twice mind you, once on PC and again on Xbox One). Sundered on the other hand was disappointing to me, so Spiritfarer coming along, I hadn't really kept up with it. That said, I do know it's on Game Pass and its story is about coping with the loss of family and friends. I don't know much about how it plays, but since it is on Game Pass now, I am going to check it out. How about all of you? Review-wise, I've only seen that GameSpot gave it a 9.0. I am listening to the soundtrack on YouTube, and the composer, Max LL's message below the video says:
Spiritfarer is a project that’s very close to the heart for me and the talented team at Thunder Lotus Games. It’s a positive, colourful and serene adventure about life, grief and compassion, where you guide spirit friends to the afterlife after caring for them in their last moments. It's not only about saying goodbye to characters but reflecting on what they leave after they've gone. It hopes to help us better address and openly discuss the subject of death, a common reality we’re all faced with. The times we are living through have made the experience of writing music for this project all the more meaningful and I feel like Spiritfarer couldn’t have come at a better moment. The connections and relationships we develop with our friends and families stay with us, we have to treasure them, be more compassionate as individuals and a society, and better learn to say goodbye when the time comes.
