New Graveyard Keeper Gameplay Trailer Looks Like the Stardew Valley of Burying People

The next Stardew Valley may be here and it has cemetery building, dungeon exploration, with plenty of questionable ethics.


After a long crunch for the past year, developer Lazy Bear Games is ready to show off their next game Graveyard Keeper. The  team in Saint Petersburg, Russia is also known for their game Punch Club, and has taken their talents to the graveyard for their next title. Lazy Bear Games describes the game as a "historically inaccurate medieval graveyard management sim." Graveyard Keeper will hit PC and Xbox One some time in 2018, but no concrete release date has been announced. Check out this five minute gameplay trailer.

More 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.
