Lily Update is Live!
Hey there, Spiritfarers!
The Lily Update is ready to spread its wings, and Lily is finally making her debut to the Spiritfarer crew! This update is completely free! All you need to do is Update Spiritfarer! ːstella_happyː
Alongside Lily herself, you'll find some new features, a bunch of Quality of life changes and lots of Bug Fixes! You'll want to stick to the end, I have a handful of news that you won't want to miss!
Oh and, before I forget, here's the Lily Update trailer:
Before we dig into the meat and potatoes of this update, I wanted to let you know that we decided to make the Lily Update a bit smaller than the others in order to properly take the time and address the most common feedback we received since the game's release: Stella's Story and Spiritfarer's Ending.
We heard it loud and clear, and we agreed, so we really gave it our all to make Stella's story and its conclusion more satisfying. We're really happy with how it turned out, and we hope you'll enjoy it too!
Now, without further ado, here's Lily, the Butterfly Spirit!
Lily - The Butterfly Spirit
Meet Lily, Stella's younger sister.
She's here to be your guiding light by granting you the ability to navigate at night, and by offering a sweet and personal window into several scenes of Stella's life. 👀
Note that she'll only appear near the very end of the game, so it might a while before you'll get to actually meet her personally!
