Description

Autumn is coming. Leaves fall, and spirits rise from the fallen leaves to begin their journey home. Guide them by changing how the wind blows or by rebuilding the ground. Each spirit can be sacrificed to perform one of four actions – build a bridge of leaves, create a blowing cloud, dig tunnels, or block wind currents in an area. Use your actions wisely or you will run out of spirits. In each level it's up to you to find your own creative solution on how to get the spirits to the goal.

New versions for PC, Linux and Android

Spirits has been faithfully ported to PC and Linux by Tim Ambrogi of Final Form Games, developer of neo-classical top-down shooter Jamestown. The computer versions of Spirits offer beautifully redrawn hi-res graphics up to 2560x1440 pixels.

The Android version has been developed by Apportable, the team who brought Osmos from iOS to Android. The viewport of the game automatically adapts to the dimensions of the device, supporting both phones and tablets.
