There’s nothing like unwinding with your favorite life sim game and a nice cup of tea. But what if the two were one and the same? Spirittea tells the story of a writer who drinks from a mystical teapot, suddenly granting a glimpse into the spirit world. Players can step into their shoes when Spirittea arrives on November 13th.
Developed by Cheesemaster Games and published by No More Robots, Spirittea tasks players with taking care of these spirits and their needs. Described as “Spirited Away–meets-Stardew Valley,” the game has a retro style and a story about helping spirits at a bathhouse.
Check out a preview of Spirittea in this eight minute showcase:
In a press release, No More Robots shares this description of the title:
Spirittea is a life sim, management game, and detective game all in one. Players live day to day, finding local NPCs and spirits to help, and taking part in tons of different hobbies, ranging from bug catching to karaoke.
Every spirit you help will then turn up at your bathhouse, where you can offer them towels, salts, snacks, and a lovely hot soak. Upgrading your bathhouse with new furniture, rooms and baths is key to attracting the most exciting spirits, including elusive Lord Spirits, who take up an entire room each.
Players will also have a friendly cat spirit, named Wonyan, showing them the ropes and helping to track spirits. The showcase features Wonyan and some of the various minigames in the title.
Spirittea will arrive on November 13th for Switch, Steam, and GamePass. It will retail for $19.99.
