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 didn't read the description before playing and when one of the people said "Was that a plane?!" I was shocked I didn't realize :O This game is a beautiful, even though it's about the saddest thing next to some of my family dieing. D:

Have you ever seen a skyscraper? it's giant, heavy, metal beams being pulled into place as it's born, but a s it dies, it's thin plaster walls peel away to reveal a cold, lifeless inside. think about it.

I found the balloon: Above the girl who says 'My balloon' and a small bit to the left, there is a red balloon matching the color of the little girl's text caption. Pick it up, bring it back, and then press Spacebar in front of the girl.

Great game, found a few ways to end it, or "start all over again" but its Reallllllllllllly cool. (over exadurated "L"s I know.)
