Graveyard Keeper releases August 15th, should include Linux support

Posted by , | Views: 5,473

Despite the SteamOS icon (meaning Linux support) no longer showing on Steam, tinyBuild confirmed to us today via email that the plan is to still have a Linux version of Graveyard Keeper [Official Site] at launch. They said they're still testing the builds, which is probably why Linux wasn't included during the alpha testing period.

The current launch is scheduled for August 15th, with tinyBuild announcing today that it "has gone gold" for release.

About the game:

Graveyard Keeper is the most inaccurate medieval cemetery management sim of all time. Build and manage your own graveyard, and expand into other ventures, while finding shortcuts to cut costs. Use all the resources you can find. After all, this is a game about the spirit of capitalism, and doing whatever it takes to build a thriving business. And it’s also a love story.


  • Face ethical dilemmas. Do you really want to spend money on that proper burger meat for the witch-burning festival, when you have so many resources lying around? 
  • Gather valuable materials and craft new items. Expand your Graveyard into a thriving business. Help yourself -- gather the valuable resources scattered across the surrounding areas, and explore what this land has to offer. 
  • Quests and corpses. These dead bodies don't need all those organs, do they? Why not grind them up and sell them to the local butcher? Or you can go on proper quests, you roleplayer.
  • Explore mysterious dungeons. No medieval game would be complete without those! Take a trip into the unknown, and find discover new alchemy ingredients -- which may or may not poison a whole bunch of nearby villagers.

Follow it on Steam and wishlist if it interests you. From the gameplay I've seen, it looks like it could be pretty amusing and slightly weird.

Also, we've now been given a key to review it, although we won't get access until release so keep an eye out.

I might get this one even though it's single-player. Looks entertaining.

I played one of the first builds in wine. It's quite fun. The installer doesn't work in wine, but it works if you use a VM with windows to install it and then copy over. The vm can be fully offline if you download the update on linux and move it over.

So, grinding "resources" up and using them for spare parts or whatever makes money . . . this is the HR department game?

Like stardew valley there are a lot of activities to do, but unlike stardew valley the day counter isn't visible except when loading a game so it doesn't bother me as much if I am not too efficient.

I need this game. I never did play Stardew Valley, but this looks brilliant!

Looks like this game will have a dark sense of humor. My interest has been piqued.

Don't tell that story to people that you're trying to convert to Linux gaming!

The game is out on GOG too, but for the moment only the Windows build.
Great surprise!

The steam version works well on ubuntu 18.04 as long as I use software cursor(default) and don't switch over to hardware cursor. Played through the first 1.7 days.
