Okkervil River, the Austin bred indie rockers have releases a online video game companion to their new album The Silver Gymnasium. The browser-based game takes players on an 8-bit adventure that pays homage to video games of the 1980s such as Maniac Mansion, King's Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry. It also features 8-bit chip tune versions of songs from the new album.

Players who complete the game will win a special code to download an EP created by Okkervil River front man, Will Sheff, featuring expanded 8-bit mixes of The Silver Gymnasium and other songs used in the game. Additionally Will Sheff is hosting an Ask Me Anything on Reddit today at 3pm ET.
