Inside a Dead Skyscraper is the newest project by Molleindustria, a music video game for the song “The building” by Jesse Stiles.

“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. Ideally, it is meant to be a critical answer to the proliferation of rhythm games ‘a la Guitar Hero. These karaoke-derived products simply capitalize on already successful music, generating royalties for a dying record industry and reinforcing the mythology of the rock star as super-human that common people should identify with.
An alternative approach to the musical game form would link the independent music and independent games scenes. Indie music games could promote unknown bands to the multi-tasking, hyperactive, interaction-addicted new generations. They could enhance the listening experience while being autonomous works as the best music videos have been done in the last 30 years. ”
