Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner has released a RPG browser game titled Japanese Breakquest. The video game, which Zauner designed with Elaine Fath, features midi versions of all the songs from Japanese Breakfast’s critically acclaimed new album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, out now via Dead Oceans. The songs play from room to room and are available in full for download if you beat the game.

Zauner detailed the video game in conversations with Billboard and Polygon.

Set in space, the goal of the game is to collect pieces of the Machinist robot to help you defeat aliens trying to take over your ship. You can equip band merchandise and instruments, like a (Sandy) Alex G T shirt, or Frankie Cosmos’ Dan Electro to raise your characters’ stats and learn abilities like “Philly Indie Cred” and “Rip a Solo” to conquer your enemies.
