Graveyard Keeper [Official Site], from Lazy Bear Games and tinyBuild finally has some proper gameplay to show off and it's equal parts weird, grim and quite interesting.

We've been following it since posting about it early last year, as it promised to be a rather unique game. When they announced it, they called it "most inaccurate medieval cemetery management sim of the year" which was quite amusing.

Come take a look:

It's not the most inviting of settings for a game, but the sprinkle of comedy looks like it will make it worthwhile. It does seem reasonably unique too, what other game sees you run a graveyard?

It will have lots of crafting to do, a technology research system, plenty of NPCs to interact with and farming as well of course because being a gravedigger isn't enough work for you. They've even sprinkled in some dungeon crawling filled with creatures to squish.

It should arrive with Linux support later this year. It has a SteamOS icon on their Steam widget on their homepage and their Steam page has a "SteamOS + Linux" system requirements tab.

We spoke to the developer on Twitter, to ask if it will be day-1 Linux support and they said "Sorry, can't confirm it now."—hopefully they only mean in relation to the release date and not the entire Linux version. We've asked for further clarification on that.

Wow! This game looks like it has it all! Farming, Crafting, RPG elements, Adventure, Humour; throw in a bit more sarcasm and possibly a bit of the supernatural and it would check all my boxes for hours upon hours of entertainment :D
