Inside a Dead Skyscraper Inside a Dead Skyscraper is an experimental game that also serves as a music video game for the song The Building by Jesse Stiles. The developers pose it as an answer to the proliferation of music and rhythm games like Guitar Hero, that capitalize on already successful music to generate more royalties for the music industry. This title aims to tie independent music and independent games.

Based on Stiles' brief tenure as a videographer in the partially destroyed buildings surrounding the World Trade Center site, this game recreates that moment with a character in a hazmat suit who is given a device by a colleague. He can then fly around the scenery and read the thoughts of the different people at the site, while everything else appears to be frozen in time. There are no clear goals aside from exploration, but there is at least one puzzle that can be solved. While playing, the theme song is played in the background. [source:mobygames]
