It’s dark and creepy ... not the kind of night to be  lurking in a sematary, but that’s where you are!

This is a tribute to the awesome USBORNE code listed game books of the 80s, particularly Grave Digger, by Alan Ramsey, published on Creepy Computer Games. It also praises the superb artistic talent of Rob McCaig, author of the said book´s illustrations. Thank you chaps for your work contributed into making me what I am.

Grave Digger Ex is a turn-based strategy game where you have to escape the sematary unscared. While doing so,  vandalize tombs and disturb the undead as they might still be carrying values, but beware of time, find the gate key and run before it´s too late. Your trusty shovel can break tombs, hit the undead and dig holes, use it very wisely.

Hello, I find this game because I am looking for BASIC's information on Itch! I notice that six games were made by you and actually, all these six games look professional! Good job!!

I notice a sentence "Game powered by the marvelous GLBasic," on this webpage. You used "marvelous" to describe GLBasic and the adjective makes me quite curious about GLBasic. I am the host of the jam. You are welcome to join it! I hope that you will join it and other people will see the full potential of GLBasic, sure.

Thanks for the offer and sorry it took quite a while to answer. I'm a bit tight on time to take in a JAM, most of the available free time is going towards building a new game. :)

Hello.........no problem.....
