About this game

Mobile version of the 2008 classic art game.

“a pretentious, ineffective waste of the interactive medium” -Destructoid

“a beautiful and moving aesthetic experience” -The Business Times

“striking and thought-provoking” -Eurogamer

“Interactivity is a powerful thing. The Graveyard could have been a short film on YouTube and lost none of its presentational qualities, or its message. But the very limited interaction you have with the character -you can walk her forward and backward, or turn- instantly makes the connection deeper and more powerful than it would have been if you were simply watching.” -Wired

Selected for the Independent Games Festival and Indiecade. Nominated for European Innovative Games Award.

The Graveyard is a very short computer game designed by Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn. You play an old lady who visits a graveyard. You walk around, sit on a bench and listen to a song. It’s more like an explorable painting than an actual game. An experiment with realtime poetry, with storytelling without words.

This full version of The Graveyard adds only one feature, the possibility of death. The full version of the game is exactly the same as the trial, except, every time you play she may die.

With music (sung in Flemish with English subtitles) by Gerry De Mol, animations by Laura Raines Smith and sound effects by Kris Force.
By Tale of Tales, the independent studio that created Vanitas for smartphones, Luxuria Superbia for tablets and The Endless Forest, The Path, Fatale, Bientôt l'été and Sunset for desktops.

I am old and I, too, walk slowly and require a cane. I am in the process of planning my Funeral so my Family will not be burdened with the process. Lately, I have been visiting the Cemetery in which I will be buried. Because of these factors, I find this game very relaxing and soothing to play. In fact, it is helping me come terms with my impending death. Thank you for creating this beautiful and unique game for myself and others like me

A great experience from the team if Tale of Tales. Poetic, sad, introspective, emotional... the meaning of waiting for something, the longing for something whom is not there anymore. Truly amazing.
