Skrillex Quest: Skrillex Drops Zelda-Inspired Video Game
As if taking over the EDM/dubstep scene wasn’t enough, Skrillex takes his electronic production to a new dimension – one that takes you to a magnetic world, think Legend of Zelda with wonky basslines. Conveniently titled as Skrillex Quest, gamers will be treated to a Skrillex playlist while concurring various levels. Game creator and music game producer Robert Oda had a few words to say about the forthcoming release: ”I really think it’s the best game I’ve ever done. Remember blowing the dust out of your NES cartridges when they glitched? This game is all about that from the perspective of the people within the game.”
Regarding the connection between the game and Skrillex’s music, Oda elaborates: “Skrillex’s music sometimes sounds like a broken video game. It fits perfectly with my glitch idea, and I took inspiration from the few lyrics it does contain for content.” For those who can’t get enough of those beasty bass drops while submersing themselves in analog 8-bit pixel, here’s you Christmas package.
