Now on the App Store: The Graveyard for iPhone and iPod touch. Only 1.99 US Dollars. A free Lite version will be available as soon as Apple approves it (release has been stalled a bit because they disapproved of your use of the word “Trial” and the reference to the full version in the description of the “Lite” one).
From the press release:
The Graveyard offers a player the opportunity to imagine themselves in a certain situation. It’s not a game in the sense that there is a way to win or lose or a puzzle to solve, or even a story to uncover. But the interaction does immerse you in a virtual world filled with narrative, an equally powerful feature of the medium of videogames. The iPhone version of The Graveyard is the same as the PC version. Only a few elements have been removed or simplified to allow it to run on the iPhone hardware. But the fact that you hold the game in your hand and touch it with your finger, adds to the sensation of fragility and preciousness.
The Graveyard was originally made for Mac OSX and Windows with Unity (2 years ago already). Since there is an iPhone version of Unity, we figured we’d just port the game. It wasn’t as easy as expected. The iPhone hardware is a lot less powerful than a PC, so we had to tweak the graphics a bit (no post-processing, no real-time overlays, no animated trees, no birds, and a vertical display area to reduce the visible part of the environment). Another problem was the lack of a usable format for sound compression which lead to the download being larger than the PC version (isn’t it ironic that an MP3 player is so bad at handling sounds?). Still, if you ask us, The Graveyard is one of the best looking and sounding games on the iPhone. Hope you enjoy it!
