Description

Mobile version of the original indie title.

"a beautiful and moving aesthetic experience" -The Business Times

"a pretentious, ineffective waste of the interactive medium" -Destructoid

"striking and thought-provoking" -Eurogamer

"incredibly short and simple, but gorgeously rendered" -Joystiq

"like stepping into an interactive film" -Mac|Life

"Interactivity is a powerful thing. The Graveyard could have been a short film on YouTube and lost none of its presentational qualities, or its message. But the very limited interaction you have with the character -you can walk her forward and backward, or turn- instantly makes the connection deeper and more powerful than it would have been if you were simply watching." -Wired

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.

The Graveyard has one special feature: the possibility of death. 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 games studio that created Vanitas for iPhone and iPod touch, and The Endless Forest, The Path and Fatale for PC and Mac.

2/5 stars

no replay value, very little play value

:
This app takes a few minutes to get through, navigating the old woman from the far side of the graveyard to the bench and getting her seated. A song plays, the lyrics display as subtitles at th ebottom of the screen, and that's it.

You can't deviate from the straight path to the bench - the game doesn't let you explore the graveyard. if it was more of a sandbox game, finding things within the graveyard, this would be fun.

On top of all this, the unresponsive controls make gameplay tedious. The only redeeming quality is the music at the end. Maybe if they had made this a music video instead of a game, it would work better.

3/5 stars

Not so interactive

:
Great-looking, but how a game? Pretty much just do one thing - walk down path, sit on bench

4/5 stars

Beautiful game, ported wrong.

:
Pros: Pretty graphics, deep message, sad but exciting atmosphere. Only 2 dollars.

Cons: Little replay value, and not much to explore. The original was better, with the iPod Touch controls, I can't seem to make a straight line.
