Publisher No More Robots and developer Cheesemaster Games have announced that Spirittea will launch in early 2023 on PC via Steam and Xbox Game Pass. Take a look at the new trailer that was shown during the Wholesome Snack: The Game Awards 2022 Edition:
Overview of Spirittea
Spirittea focuses on a writer as the main character, who has run away to the country to unwind and gather ideas for writing their next book. Unintentionally drinking tea from a mysterious teapot, they start to perceive a connection between the spirit realm and their reality through a newfound ability to see spirits.
Hey human, we’ve got problems! This town is crawling with troublesome spirits, and you’re the only one who can see them. You’d better get that old bathhouse up and running, maybe that’ll help them chill out!
The bathhouse is an ancient spirit building hidden up in the mountain, and it’s up to you to clean it up and fill it full of customers! Once the spirits are in the bathhouse, you’ll need to clean towels, chop wood to heat the baths and seat the spirits with their friends for the ultimate bathing experience. Each spirit has their own preferences so you’ll need to get to know them all and upgrade the bathhouse to become the best bathhouse keeper around.
To keep your bathhouse running, you’ll need to:
- Keep the bathhouse and towels clean – Grab your trusty broom to sweep away the cobwebs and collect up all your towels, you’ll need to keep everything clean, dry and organised.
- Deliver a five-star service with food and scrubbing – Get ready to pamper your spirits with food straight from your kitchen and a give them a good scrub while they’re relaxing!
- Make the water perfect for each spirit – Chop wood for the boilers to heat up the water to the perfect temperature and mix up various elixirs to make the water perfect for each spirit – they’ll all have their preferences and favourite recipes!
- Sit friends together and enemies apart – Every spirit has others they like best, as well as some they don’t enjoy spending time with at all! You’ll have to plan carefully when you lead spirits to their baths – don’t seat just anyone together! Unless, of course, you don’t care about making money. Which I do. Very much so in-fact.
This wholesome game first raised funds from the public in 2020 through a Kickstarter campaign by Dan Beckerton, the solo developer behind Cheesemaster Games. The project reached the target amount by the end of the month and is now being published by No More Robots.
Although no specific release dates have been disclosed, Spirittea is expected to be released in 2023. If you want to get a glimpse of the game, there’s a free demo up on its official Steam page.
