Hey kids, this is an experiment, take it as it is.

The song is from the album "Target Museum" Specific Recordings - 2010
Buy the vinyl and or mp3:

What if the term "music video game" didn't evoke images of bored college kids fiddling with pathetic plastic guitars emulating the last icons of a declining music industry?

What if indie game developers allied with indie musicians, making odd games promoting odd and unknown music while still keeping their creative autonomy the way the best music-video directors have been doing for decades?

What if a song (not its beats, not its spectrum, not its amplitude!) was dictating the content of a game and not the other way around?

These are the convoluted questions that the convoluted not-game/interactive-musi c-video "Inside a dead skyscraper" is trying to answer!

Is there a way to win or to lose?
Not really.

What's the game really about?
The game and the song are based on Jesse's brief tenure as a videographer in the partially destroyed buildings surrounding the World Trade Center site

What if

art school dropouts tried to make a fun game first and then worrying about deeper meaning afterwards?

The world may never know.

Ehh

I don't think it was really worth the time. Like it's a neat idea from what I read in the Author Comments, but I'm pretty sure the review is for the actual content. Review now done, the author comments part sounded like a sucky apology. But keep trying, you might get this to work... sometime.

"What a Mess..."

The game never started for me. IT only got to "What a mess..." and froze. I don't know if it was my computer or what, sorry dude.

Sorry to hear that. Did you try to press space?

An interesting Experiment

I've always been a sucker for trippy and open-ended games like this. No-one vote down on this for referencing 9-11; that would not be fair...
