Out of all the strange games and concepts I've covered throughout the past few months Graveyard Keeper might just be the most 'out there' of them all. It is a seemingly Harvest Moon inspired cemetery management sim, but what might come as a massive shock given the theme is that it actually appears to be pretty damn charming!

Since this is one of those concepts you need to see in order to believe, allow me to share you the relatively recent announcement trailer. It might not be overly long, but it gets the message across quite nicely. Have a look:

What all of this means in gameplay terms is that you will have to figure out how to make a successful business out of a medieval cemetery, all the while avoiding the ire of restless ghosts that would rather you didn't sell all of their blood to what might just be a vampire. You'll also have to explore mysterious dungeons in search of new ingredients, expand and properly plan out your graveyard, and also face 'difficult' ethical questions such as: "Do you really want to spend money on that proper hotdog meat for the festival when you have so many resources lying around?"

If this sort of craziness sounds like something you would love to play, you should definitely keep an eye out for Graveyard Keeper as it will be arriving this Fall. To learn more I would recommend heading over to either the official website or Steam, though I'm afraid there isn't much information available just yet. And finally, here's a few screenshots:
