Katy Goodman made this adventure game available to fans via her blog.  Now, you can see if you have what it takes to come on tour with Vivian Girls by responding to the simple questions asked in the game.  Think carefully before responding, or you may get an answer like, “Get the fuck out of here.  We hate you.”

Though the game is a simple text program, Goodman promises that she will update her Twitter page as she gets better at coding.  This adventure game is dedicated the game to her tour managers, Mark O’Donnell and Bram De Keyzer
