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



I really did love this concept! It was a bit odd, but I loved it. I hope you come up with something else like this in the future.



Don't Invest in it to much.

The idea of a "music video game" seems good in theory but it doesn't work well, biggest problum I see is to get the right mood(s) of the muisc to work with what the player is doing without restricting game play too much.

Biggest problum I had was I hit the explosion then the game/music stopped and I thought that was the whole thing when I did it again I noticed I could see the second tower(yes I got the girls balloon) but then I go too far and the game ends again which ruins the music.

Also 9/11 not the best theme for a first time.

This reminds of something bad...

My dad was there... He was just a simple employee working there... God, why? He was going to pe promoted... I can't say anything else...


Very relaxing game, despite all that chatter with the people. Love how you got it to be fullscreen! Music is great, no bugs, controls are very fluent.
