YvoCaro Plays: Graveyard Keeper’s Zombies

Time to sit down for another YvoCaro Plays. As always, these blurbs are mostly about the video games I’m currently playing. Unedited thoughts that spring up in my mind, mostly game related. And sometimes a random train of thoughts starting with the game and ending somewhere completely different. If you like these bits of gaming thoughts you can find the previous ones here

Strange conversations due to Graveyard Keeper

As you might have guessed considering the guide for Graveyard Keeper that is up on the site, that’s the game I’m currently playing. A simulation game with a macabre twist. I mean, how often are you involved in doing an autopsy on a corpse. Or helping the Inquisitior by providing wood for his Witch’ burnings?

Best not tell them where the meat comes from…

The game has a dark humor that somehow you get used to. Looking upon it as a regular sim game helps. This time the focus is on making the graveyard as good as can be, not your homestead. Making your humble church into a cathedral, and studying brains and skulls to make progress.

It makes for weird conversations between fellow writer ChamZen and myself. She is playing with a vengeance, as always far ahead of me. Phrases like “dig up a zombie and put it to work…..then make more zombies out of corpses or dig someone up form the cemetery lol.” And “Gonna go play undertaker now and see how my Zombies are doing with their jobs” pop up in our conversations now.

Better not let anyone read our conversations other wise we would be put in prison charged with the intent of killing someone or something! 🤣

The Walking Dead DLC

Talking about Zombies. Have you seen there’s extra DLC in the eShop for Graveyard Keeper? With that downloaded you can make an army of undead. Not to conquer the world or anything nefarious. No, you make them to help you tending the Graveyard and Church! And let me tell you, you need all the help you can get!

The Zombies cut stone, mine for ore and coal, cut wood and deliver it to your yard, putting everything in their designated place. They make alchemy items in the lab, and you can also set up 3 gardens with a Zombie in each. Get them to grow gold star veggies to sell to the merchant for more cash.

Once they are working for you, you can also improve their work performance by taking them to the morgue, putting it on the embalming table and increasing it’s white skulls and decreasing red skulls.

With them working for you, you’ll finally have time you need to progress the story!

We love to hear from you!
