The Graveyard Released, Demo

The Graveyard is now available, along with playable demos for the PC and Mac editions of this offbeat game described like this: "The Graveyard is a very short computer game designed by Auriea Harvey and MichaŽl 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." The PC demo is mirrored on AtomicGamer, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, and PixelRage, while the Mac edition is mirrored on AtomicGamer, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, and PixelRage.

I could have appreciated this if it was colorful. I saw no screenshots before installing and running the 'game'. Upon seeing it was black and white, I was extremely disappointed.
Too bad. Deleted.

The most colorful and relaxing thing I have seen on PC is this screensaver:

This is a work of art.

i dont know... going to an actual graveyard and watching old people struggle to stay alive is more entertaining.

Don't think of it as a game. Think of it as a piece of interactive art built with game technology. With that in mind, I thought it was fantastically done.

Maybe you just have to have been there.

Suddenly endless WW2 shooters don't seem like such a bad thing if this is innovation, eh?!

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.

only $5.

I walked to the bench and couldn't sit down. So I went to the gate and the demo ended. No song for me. I'm a miserable failure as far as grandmas go.

Interesting concept, I like the way this makes you aware of your own mortality.

Independent game development is what's supposed to save the PC, not turn it into art. It's all well and good that people want to make games that mean something, but it'd be nice to have some games that are, you know, games, too.

I'm ready for another Cave Story or La-Mulana right about now.

If nothing else, you have to give them credit for trying something a bit different.
