Bu Oyun Hakkında

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.

TL;DR skip to last paragraph

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.

I played the "full" version because my friend gifted it to me. I feel he was ripped off and should be given a refund. I've never been irritated by a gift before, but this one left me wishing I could have the time I wasted back. The only difference between the full version and the free one is... she dies on the bench. No sense of reflection. No walking back to the fence. No exploration of the graveyard (in either version). The entire game is shown in the trailer above. The instructions also detail the entire game (I wanted INSTRUCTIONS, not a plot spoiler with no alert... if you call that a plot... ?)

The reviews are complete jokes. Most are mocking the game... yet giving it a thumbs up? Thanks, guys. Way to encourage everyone to waste money on this, rather than on other artistic games - ones that have real time and effort put into them.

Yes, I love art. Yes, I own and love quite a few games that are artistic and most are rather short. Yet they tell a simple story. Some have had me in tears. I'll never forget the impact those indie games had on me. Their styles can be very unique, which is why some people do not even call them games. But this? This is incomplete and pathetic. I waited for 15 minutes for something... ANYTHING... to happen before I finally had to "force quit" in order to exit the game.

Why should we support these indie developers? If they want your money, they should at least have the sense to put a "quit" or "exit" button at the end. Regardless, this takes less than two minutes to complete. It's not interactive. You don't even control when she sits down. You can't look at any of the gravestone. Come on, seriously? I don't understand why Steam even allowed this to be posted here.

Just a bad game - not even worth the 3 - ish dollars i paid. This is the kind of thing you put online for free. I was expecting a short game, but this was, well, REALLY ♥♥♥♥ING SHORT. Yu walk to a bench, sit down and... Tha'ts it. Don't buy this game, your money is better spent on 10 copies of BAD RATS.

The concept of a painting one can explore is interesting, and on this the Graveyard delivers, albeit in a very limited fashion.

The Graveyard caters to those interested in a short, yet unique emotive experience, similar to the Plan. Taken as such it may provide an enjoyable five minutes, however at $5 USD this title is far too overpriced for me to recommend - and regrettably so, as I'm a fan of the unique artistic titles Tale of Tales publishes, especially The Path.

I enjoyed this.
I'd like to see an achievment or two for it though, one where you walk out alive, the other where you die.
I know ithis is an interactive painting, but I'd like a game like this where the whole cemetary was explorable and you could interact with alot of things, Talk when passing a grave you know or something...

This game is a true masterpiece. Not only do the graphics stand up even to this day, and come very close to be of similar beauty of the yet-to-be-released "The Witcher 3"-game, it's even phenomenal looking in the artistic sense.

A lot of manhours had to have been put in the carefully handcrafted graveyard area, the church, and even the bench. The lady in general has a truely realistic way of walking with a cane, and looks impressively detailed.
Unfortunately my version bugged out so it didn't unlock the Zimmer for me when I finished the game on Nightmare mode.

Both the Flemish song and the flipping trees are a notion of a deranged mind which was a necessary ingredient to make this game stand up to even the best games in recent game history. The tention, the ambiance, it was almost possible to actually feel like you're really there. The black and white-look of the game is sure to give you a nostalgic feeling.
Even the moment when old gran-gran died on the bench has got to be one of the most intense emotional moments ever in computer games.

I recommend this game to anyone who likes games with a good storyline, great graphics, lot's of nerve-racking action, and a cinematic experience. Also don't forget to listen from time to time to this game's godlike soundtrack, you won't be disappointed at all.

My only gripe with this game, in my honest opinion, is that the camera doesn't always follow the protagonist, and that you're able to 'walk off the screen', in a manner of speaking...

Bu bir şaka olmalı, gerçekten bu bir şaka olmalı...

İnceleme yazısına nasıl giriş yapsam onu bile bilemiyorum, yine de elimden geldiğince anlatmaya çalışacağım. Oynadığımız ana karakterimiz hayatının son demlerini yaşayan, bir ayağı toprakta olan bir nene. Neneciğimiz hem kendisini yavaştan yavaştan ebedi dünyaya alıştırmak hem de sevdiklerini ziyaret etmek için mezarlığa doğru yol alır. Ama bu oldukça uzun ve meşakkatli bir yolculuktur. Amacımız ise mezarlığın girişinde kontrolünü ele aldığımız neneciğimize ilerideki oturma bankına kadar eşlik etmek.

Oyun adı verilen bu ne olduğunu bilemediğim yapımda, nenemizin tüm hayatı, ona eşlik ettiğimiz bütün zaman boyunca şiirsel bir dille tüm çıplaklığıyla gözler önüne serilmiş. Kısa olduğu kadar tek yapabildiğiniz şey, bir yerden bir yere neneciğimizi yürütmek.

Sonuç olarak ne diyebilirim ki; Allah taksiratını affetsin...

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.

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.

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.

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.
