Chapters of the Chosen

I have made no secret of the fact that the gentlemen of Florida's geek rock juggernaut Sci-Fried are, as they say in the modern parlance, my boys. Thus it is with great pleasure that I present to you The Chosen One, an 8-bit RPG themed around their song of the same name.

Lovingly crafted by Sci-Fried's own KSV, it's an epic tale of… epicness provided freely for your amusement. It also contains what is likely my favorite disclaimer of all time:
Many of you playing this game will actually be in it somewhere. Do not read too much into your role in the game. If you have a small part, I don't think you're unimportant. If you die, it doesn't mean I hate you. If you die easily, it doesn't mean I think you're a wuss. It's a game. If I made it accurate, it would be boring.

But enough of my idle bullshittin'! Take a moment to download it from the band's official web site. Enjoy the nostalgic visuals, the midi-style Sci-Fried tunage and the utter lunacy of a game in which you must learn to play piano in order to free Dr. Vern.

Also be sure to check out the band at next month's Nerdapalooza festival in Orlando. They will be onstage rocking it out. And, if history has taught us anything, I will be offstage drinking their beer.
