The Graveyard

It’s a com­puter game, but it will take you only minutes to com­plete. It con­tains no hero and no vil­lain. There are no points to win. The paid ver­sion of the soft­ware dif­fers from the tri­al in one respect: the main char­ac­ter may die.


Minutes ago, my girl­friend and I were search­ing on the web for a game that she would enjoy (some­thing like Monkey Island). Via Apple’s soft­ware page, we found a link to Tale of Tales. The descrip­tion for the game ‘The Graveyard’ reads:

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.

I down­loaded it imme­di­ately. We played the game once. I’m reminded, quite sud­denly, of what a com­puter can do for art. More power to them.
