Vintage Okkervil River Video Game lets you walk, listen to new Okkervil

Awaiting the release of the new Okkervil River album, The Silver Gymnasium? Me too. Want to hear what the new album sounds like in midi format while playing an old-school 8-bit role-playing video game written by Will Sheff that takes you on an adventure inspired by the new album?

Well, now you can! Because that happened. Click the image below to undertake the text-and-walking based Okkervil adventure.

It’s the best walking-based PC RPG I’ve played since King’s Quest.

So far only Chapter One has been released. Hopefully later chapters don’t take you back to reenact former Okkervil songs. No one needs to play through Westfall.
