Skrillex Quest: A Video Game From Skrillex

Skrillex Quest: A Video Game From Skrillex
Music News

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.”

Why Falling In Love Should Be The Most Selfish Act Of Your Life

I’d like to say that every person in the world who isn’t already with someone is surely looking for someone. Of course, there are those who have lost someone, who refuse to look for someone new or those who have given up on the search altogether. However, deep down I believe that, fundamentally even, we […]

5-On-5 MMA Is Probably The Craziest Sport We’ve Ever Seen (Video)

This video unfolds like a real-time reenactment of some old-school boxing video game. A full-fledged, multi-player battle with Eastern European flair, this sport is both terrifying and intoxicating to behold. Five-on five-is almost too overwhelming to watch. Too many tackles and punches are being thrown simultaneously to follow any one fight sequence. If watching people […]
