Hello ‘Tangenters,

Imagine the story of an archaeologist who believes that a hidden mausoleum full of treasure lies beneath his feet. He hunts and searches… and when he finds the untouched tomb from a civilization that we know little about, he must hide its discovery from grave robbers and looters.

Wari ruins near Ayacucho, Peru

How cool would it be to be the first person, in centuries, to see this?

Sound like an awesome game? (I thought so, too.)

But, this is real life!

In June of 2013, National Geographic announced that archaeologists discovered a Wari tomb in Peru.

Not only was the mausoleum intact, but the bodies of three queens and their precious treasures were found inside.

And, this find is extra special because there is very little known about the Wari due to looting at other sites.

I can’t wait to hear more about what the archaeologists learn from all of these artifacts!

Oh, man, I wish I could play through this!

Do you have a story you’d like to see turned into a game? Tell me about it in the comments!

Tangentially,
Mari
