Update 0.18.4 for Spirit of the Island is now available. This update brings a lot of new features, including Pirate Chests that may sometimes contain Ancient Stones. Some NPCs, such as the Witch, Mechanic, and Fisherman, all sell items now depending on the time of day.

Spirit of the Island is a fun third-person farming simulator that allows you to create your own farm from scratch to attract visitors. What’s amazing about this game is that you do not have to do it alone. You can bring a friend with you in an online multiplayer co-op game, where you can do quests and resource gathering together. It features resource sharing as well, allowing you to bring some resources from single-player to the multiplayer campaign.

Spirit of the Island introduces new Pirate chests in Update 0.18.4. These chests contain random items - one of which is the Ancient Stone. Other things that you can acquire include Treasure Map pieces and Exploration XP, among many others. These can be found scattered on the island, so be on the lookout for them. Speaking of treasure, word has it that you can find one inside the Buried Cave. Be sure to look in there after updating the game.
