I wouldn’t blame you for having missed Spiritfarer’s trailer at E3 this week, which came right after Keanu Reeves’ surprise appearance at the Microsoft press conference. But still, now that it’s the weekend and things are calming down a bit, it’s the perfect time to take a look at its pleasant management-y-ness and beautiful skybox. According to its trailer, which you can see below, its key verbs are “build, care, explore,” which are all lovely. And you can hug a deer, a long term ambition of mine. Look at it all! It’s gorgeous, and you can build up your boat village, make friends with all kinds of talking animals, bake cakes, pull weeds, find strange monuments, get caught up in some kind of lightning storm, and— Excuse me? “Learn how to say goodbye?” Yes, death is an ever-present spectre in Spiritfarer.

The first time I met James Mielke, there was a whale involved. A space whale, more precisely, a galaxy in length from head to tail, swimming through the glittering firmament and basking in the rays from a billion distant suns. Sure, this whale had seen better days: it was covered with bright, glossy shards of cosmic infection, and as I scoured the infection away the whale began to sing to me. Each of those shards on its flesh triggered a single individual sound file - the whole thing was a sequencer of sorts.

Once I had cleaned its back, it even rolled over so I could get to its noble belly.This was in Tokyo, somewhere around 2010, and Mielke was a producer at Q Entertainment and working on Child of Eden, the studio's glorious and strangely timeless Kinect game. Eight years later, I met Mielke again - in Camden this time. And this time there were dolphins involved.
