Getting Up Close and Personal with Spiritfarer’s Gwen the Deer Spirit

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.

In this new trailer, Gwen the Deer Spirit is the focus of our attention. In it, we are for the first time showing the full circle of a Spirit aboard, from their reveal on the ship up to their final release.


Gwen is a one-of-a-kind girl, who happened to have been Stella’s best friend. Her wits and one-liners are legendary, as well as her phlegmatic demeanor and impeccable taste.

In Spiritfarer, the concepts of transmission, legacy, and inheritance play a central role in understanding and accepting to let go. By taking good care of Gwen, she teaches you many new tricks and trades such as sewing and crafting fabric, and in turn, becomes your guide through some of the most perilous places in the world.


Don’t be intimidated by her impassible character, she needs you as much as you need her, and in the end, only you can make her truly accept who she is.

Spiritfarer is coming to Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One in 2020. Click here for more details.
