Graveyard Girls is a Spooktober 2021 Visual Novel Game Jam Submission!


"Grief isn’t a low. It’s a terrifying high, atop a mountain I never climbed."

Visiting her father's grave on Halloween was never the plan, but inexplicably, Elle finds herself drawn to the local cemetery.

Hoping to find a semblance of closure, she arrives at his graveside with a notebook clutched to her chest.

Sitting against his headstone, Elle talks to her dad for the first time in years. 

Drowning in a downpour of memories, she closes her eyes and focuses on breathing.

Daylight slips away, but before Elle can leave, a stranger approaches.

When Elle and Lucia meet on Hallows Eve, two grieving worlds collide...

This is a beautifully-written game. I think it was really good at describing loss and the many ways people respond to it. It was an experience that was very emotional, told in a way that felt comforting. Thank you for creating this.

Wow, that was raw and beautiful. You can tell the story means a lot to the developers, they knew exactly what they wanted to say with this game. I have a feeling I'm going to keep thinking about this story for a very long time. Thank you for making this game!

Thank you for making this. I lost my dad 5 years ago so this feels really close to home. Just like Elle, he never knew I finish college either. Even though I loved him most, I buried my emotions, but after playing this, I remembered all the good times after all these years.

What a beautiful game.

Thank YOU for taking the time to leave such a touching comment. This game is dedicated not just to Sam's dad, but to the memory of all dad's gone too soon <3 sending a big hug your way.
