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: ntent/jesse-stiles-target -museum

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

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.

Good to see someone thinking outside the box

It's not common enough that someone makes a move to redefine the overly rigid boundaries between games and other forms of art. Instead of building a typical game around music, you took music and added a new, interactive dimension to it. Will it help spark a new trend? Will other artists begin to use the still-sleeping potential of the interactive media to add extra depth to their art? I'd like to see it happen.
