You know, I think it’s pretty safe to say I was growing a bit tired of this Skrillex character and the whole “Dubstep” thing the kids are all into. Well, I suppose that was until the internet delivered into my consciousness Skrillex Quest.
Here I am at my desk, minding my own business and then suddenly I am immersed in an 8-bit game seeped with references to my early days of gaming while flavored with a Skrillex soundtrack. Fifteen minutes of my day just went by and I spent that time frantically hitting my arrow keys and spacebar. And you know what? I am about to do it again!
Here’s the gist: a spec of dust gets stuck inside a golden game cartridge, corrupting the world within. P1 (that’s you!) gets sent on a mission to battle the glitches and to find The Dead Princess and unlock her from her cage by tracking down all five Dead Princess Keys. Old school references from video games past are everywhere, but none more obvious than Legend Of Zelda.
It doesn’t look like Skrillex Quest is advertising any new music as the tracks in the soundtrack were released roughly two years ago. Maybe this is just that Skrillex dude and developer Jason Oda doing something really kick ass in their spare time to give us something to do in ours.
Hell, after finishing the game, I’m slightly tempted to buy this Skrillex dude’s music. Dammit.
