The Final Farewell is a narrative adventure game developed by Studio Witchstar, a Northern Irish indie studio, that deals with the themes of grief, loss, and memories. In the game, players control a lost ghost in the Whispering Woods, befriending mortals and helping them find closure. The game's creative lead, Catherine McFall, emphasized the importance of tackling complex emotional narratives and providing a cathartic experience for players.

The game was made possible through the support of Northern Ireland Screen's Minigame program, which allowed the team to work on the concept, prototype, and release of their debut game on Steam. Studio Witchstar consists of early career individuals who aim to build their skills and portfolios through in-house projects, with The Final Farewell being their first release. The game's emotional depth and high-quality storytelling are a testament to the team's talent and potential.
