A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Combat rival necromancers by harvesting resources from a graveyard. 

Use the puzzle grid to match tiles to collect coins or summon creatures to fight for you.

This is my submission to LDJam 52 (theme: harvest).


Use your mouse to click and drag across similar icons to collect them (you must have three or more highlighted to collect). You can drag in any direction, including diagonally!

  • Collect bones to summon skeletons
  • Collect flesh to summon zombies
  • Collect 5 or more dirt at once to find coins
  • Spend coins to unlock more tiles and additional grid space
  • Collect mana by making large matches

Future development stuff?

There is a LOT of design space in this game. Especially if you have a "campaign" mode where you battle multiple necromancers across one journey

  • Upgrades to your army, make spawned enemies stronger/faster
  • Upgrades to your "base". Less dirt to find coins, unlock new tiles to match for new monsters to summon
  • Static defenses to help protect your territory
