Skrillex can add game developer to his laundry list of achievements in his career. He has partnered with developer Jason Oda to create an 8-bit homage to classic games mixed with his style of dubstep and dance music.

The premise of the game titled, “Skrillex Quest” is that the game exists inside an old Nintendo System cartridge. Since the cartridge has gone unplayed for years, its game is being devoured by corrupted code. Only the hero, P1, can save the world by fighting the glitch and partnering with a ghostly princess.

“Sonny [Skrillex] saw Perfect Strangers, and really liked it. He mentioned it to his manager as a fun idea, and he is actually a friend of mine, so he got in touch. Skrillex’s music sometimes sounds like a broken video game, It fit perfectly with my glitch idea, and I took inspiration from the few lyrics it does contain for content.” Oda says.

Skrillex’s tunes provide the entire soundtrack. Players will hear snatches from “Summit” and “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.”
