À propos de ce jeu

The Graveyard est un jeu vidéo très court. Vous incarnez une personne âgée qui visite un cimetière. Vous marchez, vous vous asseyez sur un banc et écoutez une chanson. Il s'agit plus d'un tableau que vous pouvez explorer qu'un véritable jeu. Une essai avec de la poésie et de la narration, mais sans qu'aucun mot ne soit prononcé.
L'achat de la version complète n'ajoute qu'une seule modification : la possibilité de mourir. La version complète du jeu est exactement la même que la version de démonstration, à ceci près qu'à chaque partie vous pouvez mourir.
Conçu par Auriea Harvey et Michael Samyn. Animations réalisées par Laura Raines Smith. Musique composée par Gerry De Mol. Effets sonores conçus par Kris Force.

Too short for empathy.
A simple glimpse into a moment that is possibly a final one. Actually, it will certainly be a final one. She could die any time she sits on that bench and sits on it as long as you want her to.
The avatar given has no characterization through dialogue, movement, flashback, or otherwise, and so the possible death of the character is totally irrelevant to the player as there is no consequence. A death such as this is only affecting to the most sympathetic of individuals.
The game attempts to present video games as art, but fails to exemplify anything that let video games stand out as their own medium.

If someone very close to you (especially an eldery person) has ever passed on from this life, than the art work, and poetry in this interactive art piece may resonate with you.

The description of this pay for version of The Graveyard, tells you exactly what you are paying for- the possibility of death.

If you are not interested in:
Interactive art
Very short games
Short stories, or poems
Walking simulators, or games with no action, and no gore
Than you likely will not enjoy The Graveyard.

If you aren't sure whether or not you should buy it, try the FREE demo version.
(It's up there, on the right, over the Share and Embed buttons.)

Yesterday I was taking a walk in the park, I sat down near a lake and pulled out a sandwich I had bought at a nearby deli. I was stricken by an overwhelming sense of serenity and appreciation. Over out at the lake there sat an island with a giant tree, who's branches had been made home to a number of birds nests. From the lake, I could catch sight of elderly men fishing, children playing with bread crumbs and ducks, a couple holding hands and taking a walk, a shirtless man on a jog, two women passing by on a bike. Every one of them wrapped up in their own world, but all the same, part of an ecological system that brought upon a feeling of peace, safety, and a certain pure beauty that made me aware of just how nice the cool breeze felt running across my skin from the hot summer heat, the underlying frailness of some waterside flowers that reflected beautifully on the lake's surface, and the pleasures of smell the fauna brought simply from its own life and death cycle.

None of that resonated in this lifeless game, it has absolutely no artistic merit, and the song sucked.

10/10, would put my wrinkly old woman butt on a bench again.

Another one that falls squarely into the "It's not a game... it's art" category. Yes, you do get 95% of the game in the demo, but don't think of it as "I want to buy the game to see if she dies", think of it as "This was an interesting exercise - I want to buy the game to support the developers to make more stuff like this".

Granted, they've now made "The Path" which is also worth a look at, but this was interesting. A previous review described this as "an interactive painting" and gave it a negative review. I feel the exact opposite. If you're going to interpret it as "an interactive painting" then I'd say it succeeds perfectly.

Maybe I am not understanding this game but it really is not much fun. Getting her to sit down was actually hard to do. The controlls seemed to be strangly configured and no way to remap them. I also was not able to do anything after she sat down.

Whatever you do, do not buy this. Save your money and spend 10 minutes to watch it on youtube instead.
If you really want to 'play' this, download the demo, it's basically the full game, just that you don't die...which makes no difference.

The description says:
It's more like an explorable painting than an actual game.

Well yeah, it's not. Exploring the graveyard? Forget about it, you will be able to walk straight to a bench and sit down. Awesome, innit?

Not sure if this 'art game' is even trying to be deep? If it does, it fails.
I get the point, but seriously, this is horrible.

Queen Heoly -: god this was awful lol
President Moon: like how awful
President Moon: 1-10
Queen Heoly -: 10

I'm all for 'different' games, but yeh, skip this one.

While you're at it take a look at the discussions though, lol.

Pro bro gaymen tip: if you stay more than 60 minutes in the same spot a hellish Rick Astley and Pelvis Presley will emerge from a grave while a cybernetic Robo-Adolf Hitler will teleport by your side pulling you into a time-traveling dumpster that will take you to the year of 3651 where you will defend earth and fight hoards of diaper wearing devil babies. THERE is where the real game begins. Its trouble in diaper town, and this time grandma is taking no prisoners.

I was in a graveyard just like the one depicted in this game only a couple of years ago. There was even an old woman limping slowly up the pathway to a bench. I pushed her over, laughed and ran away but, having played this game, I think if the same situation occurs again in the future I'll simply sing a gibberish song and try to understand her point of view instead.

Games can be so life-changing.

These guys are seriously charging $5 for this garbage? When you look at this store page, you're not watching a trailer. That's a full walkthrough, because that's literally all you can do. You walk in a straight line, sit on a bench, listen to a song with subtitles on, and walk the f**k out. Game over.

Yet despite how small this game is (at 47 Mb), they still couldn't even make it run properly. It skip and jitters almost constantly, and it's not just me. You can even see it in their "trailer". Not to mention the fact that when I played it, the old woman's animations glitched and I was unable to get up from the bench (or so I thought. Turns out that spending $5 let's the old lady kick the bucket while sitting on the bench). How f*****g incompetent do you have to be to make a game (and I'm being generous by calling it that) that's only 5 f*****g minutes long and still have it run like garbage and experience glitches? I saw the flat 2d tree decals disappear in fron of my eyes multiple times, and the shadows appear to be doing something which can only be described as "sh*****g themselves".

I'm so happy that this was gifted to me as a joke because if I had paid even a penny for this pretentious mound of dog s**t, I probably would have shot somebody. I can understand attempting to make an artistic statement with a game but there's nothing here to begin with. The only emotion this envoked was confusion. And not at anything that I played, I was just confused as to how the hell this got released.

I never thought that I would look at a game and genuinely regret wasting time on it, but congratulations "Tale of Tales", you did it.

The Graveyard is quite possibly the simplest game I have ever played. You play as an elderly lady in a graveyard and your only possible action is to walk forwards until you reach a bench and sit down. A song then plays for a few minutes and you either get up before the song ends or you remain and quietly die. That is the entire game.

Interestingly enough, for a game that has absolutely no gameplay The Graveyard actually has a gamebreaking bug. If you remain seated during the song and die you will be forced to use ALT-F4 to end the game as the only real way to exit is to get up before the song ends.

Poetry, Art, Experience. I do like that there are game developers out there that are experimenting with new things but charging gullible consumers money to play, what is essentially a postcard where you have to press the forward key for a few seconds to see it all, is just dishonest and greedy.

This is not a game, some might consider it art. I consider it a money grab.

This game changed my point of view - Yes, in fact it did! Only after about 10 minutes of almost crying excitement, I was literally stunned by the enlightenment which this game so forcefully granted me.

This game changed my point of view - Before I played this game, I did not believe in a bad game. I mean every game has something... at least something... that makes it decent, in at least one way, even if it may have countless flaws.

But this game - changed my point of view. This game is just pure bad, in every sense of the word bad. It is even that bad that it deserves a praise for how bad it is, from a scale from legendary to awful, it scores a pure awful! Yes, it's just that bad.

I did get a graveyard for which my heart desired - yet with no freedom to interact or explore, only the vile path of unpleasantness awaits you.

It's even that bad that I would almost recommend it just to experience the awfulness first hand, this is indeed a life time of awfulness squashed into a short 10 minutes of gameplay! I did not believe the end screen when I walked out of that graveyard, it came from like out of nowhere... it still scares me, this day today.

Ofcourse, this is in my own personal opinion and I respect that your own opinion might be otherwise.

If you're considering buying this, don't.

I get that this is supposed to be a small, artsy endeavor that shouldn't really even be classified as a game properly. I do. I've actually played other 'games' like that. The thing is, those were mostly very well done. This is crap.

It uses standard wasd controls, but a and d turn instead of strafe. This makes movement awkward unless you're going straight forward. Fortunately(?), the camera angle is fixed and you have literally nowhere else to go because invisible walls block you from leaving the path forward in any meaningful way. Technically, you can travel a brief distance down the side paths before encountering them, but that hardly makes any difference.

The worst part, really, is that it fails even at what should be its strength. The movements are poorly executed and frequently fail to match up properly with the environment. The birds, about the only moving things in the game apart from the protagonist, constantly clip through objects such as your character and the pavement. And the art assets themselves, even on highest settings, are mediocre at best in comparison with other 3D games of the last 5 years or more, and often considerably shabbier.

Your experience of the game will not even vary in any significant way as near as I can tell. You will walk her to the end of the path where she will sit on the bench. Then, a transparent profile of her will appear along the right side of the screen, and a song about death sung in German plays, with subtitles. At some point during this song, she will die.

The instructions are misleading, as they say you will walk her back out of the graveyard, ending the game, after it is done. I did three playthroughs, altering various things to try and see if she would survive so that I could, indeed, walk her back out and end the game properly, including going very slowly and letting her rest frequently and at length, in case it was linked to overexertion (perhaps as a way of punishing the player for not taking the time to appropriately appreciate this 'art'?). In the end, nothing worked. One of the only things I did not try was turning clockwise to sit down on the bench instead of counter-clockwise, and the idea that this could be the deciding factor is asinine, and I refuse to waste any more time experimenting with it because the game is so tedious and boring.

I honestly don't even know why this is for sale. I could see this being made as a hobby project or maybe some kind of tech demo, but charging money for it seems almost unconscionable. This is easily in the running for the worst game on Steam.

In short, if you still have any interest in this, just watch a youtube video of a playthrough instead. You'll get the exact same experience minus pressing the w key and then a or d to turn around and sit (which she does automatically). Don't waste your money on it.

WORST virtual "experience" I ever spend money on!
I love art, games and movies that just want to be art and special always get a chance and I like "The Path" and "Tale of Tales" as well, but I´ll never get this 10 minutes here back and I´m really glad I didn´t spend any money on it whatsoever considering the price for the whole bundle when it came into steam sale. 4€ is a bad joke for crap like this. 0/10
