How does it feel to be old? Death is near. But the world is still as beautiful as it once was. Sit on a small bench in the cemetery and contemplate your life. Maybe you will die. But that is alright. The sun continues to shine, the birds continue to fly, the clouds continue to float by.

The Graveyard (sometimes stylized as the Graveyard.) is a computer art game developed by Belgian developer Tale of Tales in which the player assumes the role of an elderly woman walking through a graveyard to a bench.[1] A song "Komen te gaan" begins to play, after which the old woman walks out of the graveyard and the game ends.[2] The difference between the free trial and the full game is that in the full game, every time it is played there is a chance the elderly woman dies of natural causes.[3]

The Graveyard was nominated for the Innovation Award in the Independent Games Festival 2009 [4] The Graveyard was one of the inspirations for the Tibetan village scene in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.[5]
