The Happy Hereafter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quirky game but Hilarious. This is one of those games it takes a few times to play to figure it out. But it was so much fun figuring it out. I actually got attached to some of my ghouls like Shep and Merv, You might have 2 or 3 Shep's or Merv's but I love them all. It seems that all of the trinkets you find is attached to what ghouls you get. So if you picked up a few artifacts and you have a lot of ghouls there will only be a few different ghouls. You will have 3 Merv's and 3 Elizabeth's if you only picked up two artifacts. . Quirky things about the game you have to figure out. Things like they will feed themselves when they are hungry, most of the time. One quirk I found annoying are the levels. You think the first level of mines, shops, warehouses, houses etc. Is the level you first get , no it is the first level you get after you study One star for level 2 and 2 stars for level three.. Very confusing, you have to study to get those levels. And some levels are not marked that way. The game was very fun to play. It is not hard. The only problem was in the beginning you might run out of food and money but it that not last too long, as soon as you can trade. Do not buy too many workers because it will deplete your food no matter if you have both farms at level 3. The last level warehouse should hold more. I was making too much product and money and it would not fit in the warehouse. A solution is to stop some of workers but now you have bunch of workers hanging out doing nothing but eating, it looked like a 7-11 Parking lot on the bad side of town in the summer. Buy the game it was hilarious . IMO it runs too short. Let's hope if there is another one it is much longer, with a bigger warehouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Star Fun I hardly ever buy a game right after doing the one hour trial, but for me this was to cute too pass up. It has a funny, cute bunch of characters who will keep you busy dragging them around from job to job. There are lots of quest and things to discover around the land to stay busy for a long time. If you have ever played Farm Tribe this game is comparable to that. The younger kids could work on it with the help of parents and really enjoy it too. Nice game, I'll be looking for a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT ADDICTIVE GAME This cute little sim is a gem. You are in the land of the hereafter and the dead must learn to build themselves houses, educate themselves (shades of Virtual Villagers), build tools and fulfill quests. It is harder than it seems (a little later on in the game), and I've had to restart it several times. The quests appear on the left hand side of the screen with an exclamation mark. You must gather materials, study a course at the laboratory and make appropriate tools, together with having enough gold to complete the quest. It is quite a long game, and be careful what you sell (trade) as you may need it to complete a quest and move on in the game. It's 4:55am here and I'm still going, as it is very difficult to tear myself away. There are walkthroughs galore on YouTube and also a forum to answer any questions you may have. Really worthwhile. It is now my very favourite game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Loved Everything About This Game! Hereafter is simply a management game because there is no timer. The cartoon 3D graphics are so well done it gives this game the wow factor. Lighthearted yet creepy music, adjustable gamma, and resolutions and each worker and guests are different, that's just a few things that set this game apart. There are zombies, vampires, pumpkin heads and plain old dead folk. Your workers are displayed in the left bottom corner and you scroll through them to find an available worker, if they are already working on a task it will tell you they are busy but you can re-assign them. Each worker will have a display of happiness and when the numbers get low you will need to pick them up and take them to the dining table to replenish. New tasks are given constantly and they are displayed in the top left icons, after completing a task simply click on the icon to collect the reward. Even the resources are different, eyeball trees and glowing mushrooms, dead trees and pumpkin vines. There are skull caves to find artifacts in and cellars and creepy houses to build. There are hidden scrolls and stone figures to find and they will be displayed in your gallery along with all the guests you acquire. When you enter your gallery and click on the stone figures they will briefly morph to life then change back to stone. The tutorial is good and because there are so many things to do in this game you will want pay attention to it simply because this game is not your typical TM game, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute It's like virtual villagers only WAY faster! You have "tasks" and when you complete them you get rewarded with coins which you need along with resources to build things. You have to collect food, wood, and those kinds of things. Also, you find treasure and scrolls which unlock a gallery of new characters. You also build houses when new "characters" arrive and cellars which make production speed up (which in my opinion are already fast). I LOVE it. If you haven't played virtual villagers it's like this but WAY SLOWER it takes you FOREVER to do anything and ANY task!! However it's still a likable game. This one however I LOVE! Once again what I LOVE the MOST is the people and tasks go by REAL FAST!!! I haven't finished the game but from what I've played I LOVE! Cute story line or so i think and you have an "assistant" who helps you along the way in case you have trouble with a task. Which helps when you first start off. Overall the graphics are NICE and the music is cute...it just "fits" with the theme as well as the characters. I HIGHLY recommend this game for gamers who like/love simulation games!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Building TM Game! This game is a lot of fun. You are in charge of building a place for souls to go in their afterlife. There are many quests that you must do to build your city and expand. The storyline was entertaining, although sometimes the commentary from the quest givers was a bit too much. You can just click thru if you don't want to hear the story, but it is pretty good. I found myself looking forward to the next story most times. Graphics are great as is the sound and music. All in all, a great game. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calling all Virtual Villagers fans! What a cute sim game just in time for Halloween! I always loved the Virtual Villagers series but hated how long it would take for my village to complete tasks. (Hence, messing up my PC's internal clock from constantly moving it ahead!) But this game is different, tasks are completed in seconds and the adorable yet creepy ghouls move at a much faster pace. There are tons of quests and the tutorial is wonderful, allowing you to jump right into the game. Lots of items to collect, and characters to unlock. A fun game for the whole family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Game Full of Fun Quests This is a building game similar to Wandering Willows. If you liked Wandering Willows, you will love this game. You are given quest after quest and given rewards for completing them. There is no timer, and your goal is to develop a thriving community of dead people, which is a funny objective. The characters and artwork and music are absolutely charming. I just loved this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I seldom write reviews, especially after a couple of days. But this game is so much fun. I love this sort of game but even with that bias, I think this one is my favorite. It moves fast. The characters are adorable. The graphics are great. Try it for yourself.
