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


This is wat to do

go up to the next skyscraper u see a ship touch it and it says u are daydreaming

awesome song, awesome game

you are pure gunies! I love all your games

I love the song

But I'm not quite sure what to do.

Quirky and spectacular.

I don't understand it at all. Should I? No. It's wonderful. It's terrifying, and hopeful, and meaningful and cynical and optimistic and lovely.

You've done it, honey. You've just done it.

I liked it a lot, even the song is very beautiful. I'm from Italy, and maybe I can't understand how an American perceived the 9-11 tragedy, but this "game" really gave me that sensation. Cool.
