The Graveyard Trial
by: Tale of Tales • 468
Mobile version of the classic 2008 art game.
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.
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.
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.
