Linkin Park's New Video Is a Game

Following last week's release of a lyric video for "Guilty All the Same" (featuring  Rakim ),  Linkin Park  has released a updated video -- and it's actually a rebuildable video game. 

According to  Billboard , where there's an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game, the technology used in the video is called Project Spark.  When the video is played on Xbox or any Windows 8 PC, fans can take apart the video components and remix the song and the game any way they'd like. 

Linkin Park multi-instrumentalist  Mike Shinoda  tells  Billboard , "Since I was a kid, I wanted to make games."  However, it was turntablist  Joe Hahn  who got the idea for the video when he attended last year's E3 video game convention: "I saw this cool demo for Project Spark, and it just blew my mind. For me, the next step was to see if we could showcase our next song as a game instead of a video."

The end product is something that looks like a mashup of the games  Temple Run  and  Badland  -- the main character is on the run from his own guilt. The better the character does, the more enhanced the music sounds.
