Japanese ruins tell a story; inspire indie game.

If your posessions were found in fifty years, what story would they tell? For one house in Japan, the ruins tell the story of a Western man with ties to the Queen of England who married into a Japanese family. Someone in the family didn't like him, as he was cut out of some of the photos. Why did the family leave so much behind?

It seems like a good setup for a videogame. An upcoming indie title, Gone Home, revolves around solving a mystery in a home from the mid 1990s through exploring it. The team developing Gone Home has experience on Bioshock projects, but Gone Home should be a bit less scary.
