The Graveyard is a very short computer game. 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 poetry and storytelling but without words.

About the Game

The Graveyard is a very short computer game. 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 poetry and storytelling but without words.
Buying the 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.
Designed by Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn. Animations by Laura Raines Smith. Music by Gerry De Mol. Sound effects by Kris Force.

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.

An amazing experience, such beauty and passion which can only be influenced in such a short amount of time. If you are playing this game for a first time I would recommend not equipping the sword until you have reached the holy grail as the enemy will start attacking you before you reach the bench.

This game really makes me moist, i dont know whats about it, i set my alarm one hour earlier to play this before school, its just THAT GOOD, The main character is this old lady whice is really intresting cus her attacks is mainly singing badly in german, there is some hidden messages in her songs, i think she sings about killing babies.

9/10 They could have fixed the graphics some more that would be cool, and we need dlc! I just wanna see her kill some more monsters and perhaps a better weapon than singing and that stupid cane. It's ♥♥♥♥ trust me, You're a fat truck.

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.
