Description official descriptions

This game is an expansive adventure, music video generator, and business sim all-in-one. The storyline goes as follows: You've spent every last penny of your money buying an expensive music video production tower and having it blasted off into another dimension. In order to complete the game you must earn enough money (minimum of $1 million) to blast your tower back home. To earn money you must make music videos. Dozens of songs and video clips are provided for you, and you must construct a "bonzai" video that one of three music TV producers would like and strike deals with them. But sometimes the clips and songs given don't cut it, and you must venture out into the world and film different clips yourself. Every once in a while you must have a duel to the death with a guitar monster. You also must recruit singers for your videos to improve your song quality, singers such as Johnny Fang and Edgar Death. All in all its a very large game with weeks of playing time.
