Last year at PAX I played a little game at Tiny Builds orange booth called Graveyard Keeper. I broke the demo, much to the chagrin of the person who was demoing it for me. Clearly the game had much work to still be done. Now nearly a year later Tiny Build is ready to show a new version of that game to the world with a 5 minute game play trailer. So go enjoy what I was playfully told was “Stardew Valley” but with dead people. Then head over to and sign up for the alpha test!

After you take a gander at the video and sign up for the alpha test make sure you also check out the games devlog on the game’s Steam Page. Developed by Lazy Bear Games in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Graveyard Keeper is a historically inaccurate medieval graveyard management sim that is coming to PC & Xbox One in 2018. No concrete dates are announced yet.

About Graveyard Keeper
  • Face ethical dilemmas. Do you really want to spend money on that proper hotdog meat for the festival when you have so many resources lying around?
  • Gather valuable resources & craft new items. Expand your Graveyard into a thriving business, go ahead and gather valuable resources scattered in the surrounding areas, and explore what this land has to offer. 
  • Make business alliances. These dead bodies don’t need all that blood, do they? Why not sell it to someone who can put it to good use. Same for body parts. Hey, it’s being efficient with recycling! 
  • Explore mysterious dungeons. No medieval game would be complete without these. Take a trip into the unknown and find useful new ingredients which may or may not poison a whole bunch of nearby villagers. Capitalism.
