skrillexquest Skrillex gets his own video game

Recently, dubstep imperial leader Skrillex soundtracked Disney’s epic celebration of video game culture, Wreck-It Ralph. Now, the man goes beyond mere scoring, creating his own video game entitled Skrillex Quest. Note: Make sure you’re well supplied with Mountain Dew and Spicy Doritos before reading on.

In the 8-bit-inspired game, developed by Jason Oda, players take the role of a young knight living in a video game cartridge that looks eerily similar to (or is a direct knock-off of) 1986’s The Legend of Zelda. With the world infected by dust-born glitches, the player must destroy these squared fiends, find the Dead Princess Keys, and free the world.

As one might expect from a video game involving Skrillex, there’s a bevy of loud, chaotic music (both “Summit” and “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” are used heavily) and potentially seizure-inducing visuals to overwhelm the viewer (y’know, like at a Skrillex show). So, what are you waiting for? Start your journey to save the digital world by clicking here.

For a less overhwelming merger of Skrillex and video games, watch this video of “Bangarang” set to footage from titles like Crysis 3 and Borderlands 2.

The music in the YouTube video is his remix of the Reptile Theme for Mortal Kombat, but it definitely sounds like Bangarang.
