Skrillex Has A Video Game And It’s Awesome

It’s easy to hate on Skrillex since hating popular things just seems to be the status quo these days, but no matter which side of the Skrillex/dubstep fence you stand on, this game is definitely worth checking out.

The heavily 8-bit inspired Skrillex Quest mixes hints of Zelda, Journey, Ico, and Sword & Sworcery with trippy, glitchy, epileptic shock-inducing graphics. And, yes, it’s set to a Skrillex track (but it’s more chill and trance-y compared to his more violently wubby stuff) and uses iconic cues from his arsenal of songs as sound effects. If all that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, just mute it, but it definitely adds to the overall experience.

The whole game can be completed in around 20 minutes. Check it out for free at SkrillexQuest.com.

It’s also worth mentioning that this was made by Jason Oda, the same guy who made the incredible Flash game based on one of my favorite 80’s sitcoms, Perfect Strangers.
