FR - The Graveyard est un jeu pour ordinateur très court. Vous jouez le rôle d’une vieille dame qui visite un cimetière. Vous marchez le long des tombes et vous vous asseyez sur un banc. Vous fredonnez une petite chanson puis rentrez à la maison.

Tale of Tales release Graveyard on Android

Ghent-based indie game development studio Tale of Tales have ported the mobile version of The Graveyard to the Android platform. Both a free trial version and a $1.99 full version, in which the protagonist can die, are now available from the Android Market. In The Graveyard you play an old woman who visits a cemetery, walks around, sits on a bench to listen to a song and eventually again leaves.

"The Graveyard"The original PC and Mac version of The Graveyard was created during the production of Tale of Tales' most well known title The Path, in part to test how the audience would respond to the radical design choices the team were making. "The Graveyardis probably the purest expression of our design philosophy to date," directors Michael Samyn and Auriea Harvey explain.
