[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘The Grave Digger’

The Grave Digger (GL)

This time the spotlight will be shining on The Grave Digger, an uncanny cemetary-based horror game that has you playing a grave robber (not to be confused with… a tomb raider). Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Take control of shovel-master Fagus the grave robber extraordinaire in this third person stealth action-adventure. It’s a curious blend of whimsical English comedy and grim Dickensian horror made by a two-man team dedicated to fun, addictive gameplay.

I know what you’re thinking, and I’m inclined to agree: we should let the dead rest. But without a little grave digging, this game wouldn’t have come to be. Based on what I’ve seen/read, that’d be a darn shame for sure. That said, given the amount of trouble our protagonist gets into for disturbing those who have long since left this world, maybe he should have thought twice before embarking on that uncanny, greedy – and dangerous – quest of his. See, searching for loot in each graveyard obviously involves disturbing the peace, which will unfortunately trigger quite the haunting (get it?), as ghosts and ghouls give chase! But maybe, just maybe, it’ll be worth it in the end. An end which may come sooner than you think, in… The Grave Digger.

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is The Grave Digger still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s available from Desuraitch.io and direct (via. FastSpring) for Windows and Linux, priced at $5.99, so it’s not like you’re voting on an unfinished project. As such, might I recommend visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!
