This is a real thing in the world.

The REO Speedwagon video game.

Out today, REO Speedwagon: Find Your Own Way Home, a game that is "intended to promote the band in general." Why, you ask? Why not, I guess?

The downloadable interactive game features avatar versions of the five band members and a make-believe reporter for an entertainment TV show. The plot is centered on the disappearance of Kevin Cronin, the lead vocalist for REO Speedwagon.
Sounds thrilling. The game "will cost computer users about $8 to play for each session, which can last as long as 10 hours." Imagine that, 10 hours of Speedwagon's greatest hits. Maybe "thrilling" ain't exactly the right word.
