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

I'm not sure what to think...

But this game has made me think. For all I know, the artist has accomplished his goal for that reason. Bravo

Good song too.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


i liked the style of artwork and the soundtrack (even if it was over-synthesized)
what i don't like are the dill-weeds who like to spew hate on anyting related to 9-11 that isn't full of pity!
i think it's fine, theres no disrespect or hate for the victims, so theres no problem.

I knew it

9/11 was all planned out by guys in nuclear-proof suits with mind reading devices!

A bit pretentious, aren't we?

Not funny as a game, not thought inducing as an experiment, not awe inspiring as art.

And yet you compare yourself to your betters and downgrade comercial games. Well done.
