** In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestVTheNextMutation'', Roger is in command of a starship. One of the planets he visits is supposed to have a small colony. However, no one on the planet is responding to hails, so Roger and his weapons officer Droole beam down to investigate. All they find are abandoned buildings and no trace of the colonists. [[spoiler:Then a mutated colonist jumps Roger and tries to infect him with the mutagen. Luckily, Droole shows up and blasts the mutant. A canister found near the colony provides clues as to the origins of the mutagenic plague. Later, Roger travels to the space station, where it was developed, and finds it abandoned as well]].

** Done again later, when you go looking for the Androsynth homeworld only to find out that the Androsynth were researching something they shouldn't have, and were seen by something when they really didn't want to be seen. [[EldritchAbomination There are no more Andryosynth, only Orz.]]

* A Flash game called ''Found Lost'' is pretty much the whole trope. You as the character get lost in the back country on a way to a Halloween party and break down in front of an old house that beckons you in. Some scattered news clippings, a journal, and some scary imagery later, you find out exactly what happens to the previous owner. And it ain't pretty.
