I Want My MTV Back
Flash based Video Game
The idea for this game came from my fondness of 1980’s popular culture and a desire to share my point of
view on the transitioning of MTV away from music to reality programming. “I Want My MTV Back” is a
fictional narrative game about restoring MTV to its glory days. When the viewer interacts with the game
they become the protagonist of the narrative, guiding the plot with a series of decisions. The message of the game is that technology affects culture, and once it has it cannot go back. My intent for this piece was to create a fun, playful interaction that comments on a current hot topic in popular culture.
