577: Spiritfarer

Post by JaySevenZero »

Here's where you can contribute your thoughts and opinions for Spiritfarer for potential inclusion in the forthcoming podcast.

A friendly reminder that where the feedback for the podcast is concerned, we love it - but keeping it brief is appreciated. We do want to include a breadth of opinions where appropriate, but no-one wants a discussion podcast that’s mostly reading out essays. Better to save yourself time and cut to the chase if you can.

I watched my wife play Spiritfarer the year my grandmother died.

She had disowned me ten years ago after I came out -- and we hadn't spoken since. I had always hoped that one day she would see me -- but she never did.

Watching these flawed, imperfect spirits continually abandon my wife / Stella made me repeatedly confront my buried feelings about her death. Until I accepted the fact that reconciliation...closure is rare and never guaranteed.  And that's a choice we make every day we go without forgiving or loving.

So when I rock my newborn son late at night and whisper my love to him, I choose to not leave him wondering or wandering in this life or the next.

This game takes aim at an incredibly important topic and in my mind, surpassed or matched so much other art about death.
