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



Rated 5 / 5 stars


I love the way the music mixes with the game, but I also love how the game is deep but not too deep. I know you say it's not a game, but hey, I can't think of any other classifications. Deserves more than a 10 and 5 but sadly, that's as high as I can go. Keep up the creative work!

The meaning.

I came up with a mini-story to go along with this game. After 9/11, a special team came to investigate in another building. One of the man's jobs was to go back to before 9/11, and try to find a way to prevent it. I think the device freezes time for everyone but the man and the problem. The device also let's him read minds. When he was flying around, he saw a little girl who was not frozen. She was crying, and reaching into the air for a frozen balloon. The man grabbed the balloon, and gave it to the girl. Then, she froze and the device took him back to his time.
So, basically, I say the little girl was the only problem they could prevent.
