I don't know how balanced or playable this game is but it's full of ideas and has a hell of an atmosphere! Reading it made me think of Tom Waits's “What’s He Building?” de Tom Waits and Roald Dahl's “The Sound Machine”…
Uncle Gordo's House
A downloadable game
Uncle Gordo has died and left all his weird stuff to the young people he loved.
Nieces and nephews, both blood and adopted. Scruffy street rats he paid to mow his lawn. Paid assistants and the garage band who borrowed his garage. You have all met to clean up his house and sort out his estate, which is large and bizarre.
Uncle Gordo was an inventor, and he built strange machines, and they are everywhere.
And they are going to cause a lot of problems.
Uncle Gordo's House is a tabletop role playing game suitable for digital or analog play

Thank you! Balance wasn't a consideration - in a game like this that's a social contract issue - but lots of people have played and enjoyed it. It's pretty unstructured, so adjust your expectations accordingly! I hope you get a chance to give it a try, the wonderful things your friends come up with are always really delightful. - Jason
