If you watched the most recent Nintendo Direct-style Indie World show, you were introduced to Spiritfarer, which was easily one of the hits of the presentation. Developed by Thunderlotus Games, Spiritfarer is advertised as a “cozy management game about dying.”
In this game you play as Stella, the titular Spiritfarer. She’s in charge of helping ferry the deceased over to the afterlife. And while they’re on the way to their destination, Stella has to take care of her passengers. This includes crafting, building, and cooking, the latter of which requires ingredients of course.
Spiritfarer Recipe List
Spiritfarer is meant to be “cozy,” so this doesn’t have the same vibe as a survival game. Your resources and tools are all about taking care of your passengers and doing things at your own pace. But there are trophies and achievements, and that means if you’re a completionist, that can absolutely be a part of your adventure. Even without those, on the Switch for example, you may find yourself doing everything anyway.
It’s still early in Spiritfarer’s life cycle, but players are enjoying the game and its laid-back pace and emotional warmth. Turns out this kind of experience, much like Animal Crossing, lends itself oddly well to completionist-like play.
After all, if you’re having a good time, why not keep having that good time as long as you can? So with that being said, if you’re trying to cook all the different kinds of food in Spiritfarer, here’s a handy list of recipes from the trophy hunters, (edited for grammar/readability):
Stella really knows her way around the culinary arts, huh? Getting through all the recipes in Spiritfarer will net you an achievement/trophy if you’re playing on the Xbox One or PS4, called Master Chef. Those last three recipes in particular seem a little suspect, but we assure you there’s relevant context in the game. Play it to find out what’s going on there!
