Inside a Dead Skyscraper is a new experimental work from Molleindustria, developer of games like Every Day the Same Dream and Run Jesus Run. Here you play as a man (or a woman, you can never really tell) in a hazmat suit, who was given a strange device by his partner and advised to explore his surroundings. The device in your hand can be used to read the thoughts of other people you meet, but you need to be standing really close to a person for the gadget to work properly.
This game was made to promote the work of a musician, but it is a missed opportunity not to design at least one puzzle around a key moment just to flesh out the story a little bit. Inside a Dead Skyscraper is still worth a look, especially if you're a fan of experimental stuff from developers that try to do something different every once in a while.
