Ghost Harvest Is New Freemium Title From 8lb Gorilla

By , on June 17, 2011

Burke and Hare would turn in their graves if they realised that, in time, fiddling around with dead bodies for fun could all be done via a freemium iPhone app.

Two years after their debut outing Zombies & Me, 8lb Gorilla (EA's micro-studio) returns with a new venture, pitched somewhere between FarmVille and The Addams Family.

I mean, why harvest life-giving crops when you could be saving the souls of bucket-kicking space miners, pilots, and other unfortunates?

As the cemetery boss, it’s your job to take care of the graves and spruce up the grim locale with trees, mansions, scarecrows and other boo-tiful artefacts.

Much like freemium title Smurfs' Village with its Smurfberries, Ghost Harvest has its own currency - candy - which you can purchase in-app (starting at 99c) to speed up the building process.

You can also earn candy by watching EA game trailers. Definitely cheaper in the long run.

Ghost Harvest is available on iPhone for free as of right now.
