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

Interesting

Not only did this get me listening to Jesse Stiles's stuff, I like this type of game - where it doesn't seem like much at first but there's some hidden alternate ending if you spend enough time exploring.

Fahrenheit 9-11

Very interesting the idea of exploring what people was exactly thinking in the precise moment of 9/11, and magistral execution of the concept.

Yup, its a review.

Preasumption got the better of me on this, here I was enjoying a rather quirky interactive game between two unusual characters when outside I step and music begins to play. Unexpected, and plesantly surprising. Its good to see a little innovation in terms of development and design.

For what it is as an experimental music video I'll give you a 9.

I would have gave it a 10 but that would suggest it is perfect. is anything, considering improvements can be made over time?

Not that I suggest any :P

Good Job.
