Ghoul Grind: Night of the Necromancer is a Homebrew Video Game by Woogworx.

October 29th, 199X, Vladimir Dracovich is walking through the graveyard of South Crypton to meet his friends Nox Francisca and Veronica Mimieux at their hang out, "The Spot". Somehow, he becomes possessed and, with his newfound necromancy powers, raises an army of the undead.

Nox and Veronica, meanwhile, are sitting in The Spot waiting for Vlad to arrive. While they wait, they're attacked by a monster that Nox quickly dispatches. Realizing that the dead have risen, Nox and Veronica head to the cemetery to find the source of the necromancy. Thus begins the longest night of their lives.

The game was funded on Kickstarter on April 7th, 2021. It was released for the PC, Nintendo Entertainment System, and Sega Dreamcast on November the 12th, 2021.
