Spiritfarer received The Lily Update for free Tuesday as developer Thunder Lotus celebrates the game selling 500,000 copies. It is Thunder Lotus' first game to do so, and it reached the milestone roughly eight months after its August 2020 launch.
The Lily Update is the first of three free updates planned for Spiritfarer in 2021. It introduces Lily the Butterfly Spirit, who will guide the player through new quests that dig into the game's main character, Stella. It also brings local co-op improvements and bug fixes.

"As ever, the updates we’re bringing to Spiritfarer this year are all about the fans – those who helped make this our studio’s most popular game ever” said Spiritfarer creative director Nicolas Guérin.
“We wanted to keep the Lily Update small, to address the single most common feedback we’ve received from players since launch: fans want to know more about Stella and what, ultimately, her quest is about. It’s the emotional core of the game, so we wanted to get it right; Lily offers a sweet and personal window onto who Stella is, and we hope the players like what we’ve done with this update."
