A graveyard simulator, a story of epitaphs, a tale of ghosts that haunt, a game with no goal— all valid descriptions of Boon Hill. Boon Hill is a game about reading gravestones. The game itself has no win scenario, or lose scenario; Instead, it is about inferred stories. The graveyard is full of whispers from those who've long since passed on: tales of love, life, sorrow, and joy, told over generations. The threads of narrative are woven throughout the gravestones for you to discover. Here, people are tied together by something as simple as similar birth dates, the places they were born or died, and even the styles of their grave markers. Subtle stories abound in the rows of stone. So enjoy the game, play it for as long or as short a time as you want. There's no wrong way to experience Boon Hill.
