 +===== Plot Ideas =====
 +
 +  * "​Haunting"​ is due to previous owner who's been driven mad by the thought of the house leaving his family after owning it for hundreds of years.
 +    * He is supposed to be in a mental hospital but managed to escape.
 +    * He uses a set of hidden corridors to navigate around the house without being seen, which can eventually be discovered and used by the player.
 +  * House has a history of strange disappearances and deaths.
 +    * Actually due to a history of mental instability in the family, which was hushed up due to their wealth.

 +===== Puzzle Ideas =====

 +  * Torch goes out and must be hit repeatedly until it lights up again. Something in the room may have changed, or this could be a means to delay the player.
 +  * One door could be jammed shut - turns out it's the player'​s friend'​s body slumped against the door from the other side when there'​s seemingly no other entry to the room.
 +  * Unbeknownst to the player (or their friend), the mansion'​s layout is an exact mirror image, identically laid out. Without realising the player moves into the mirror layout and all directions are reversed, objects are different, etc.
 +  * The stairs have collapsed and only a rickety service lift allows access to the upper floors. This could provide a mechanism for moving the player into the mirror image layout.
