The game's song by the Belgian artist Gerry De Mol is about how his mother used to clean the graves in the graveyard next to her house.
As of November, 2008 The Graveyard's demo has been downloaded approximately 120,000 times. In that period it has sold 400 copies, 44% of which were on the Macintosh platform.
In 2009 the game was parodied as The Gutter and in 2010 as Graveyard Graveyard Revolution.
The game was nominated for the 2008 European Innovative Games Award.
