Right on the heels of 2 Chainz and Juicy J’s 8-bit adventures comes another retro video game that features a digitized major musician. In Skrillex Quest, the dubstep superstar gets the Legend of Zelda treatment. When a speck of dust invades an old game cartridge and threatens to unravel the entire virtual world, Skrillex’s tunic-clad avatar must destroy the game’s glitches and save the virtual princess. His music is prominently featured, which is fitting, as game creator Jason Oda notes that Skrillex’s tunes sometimes sound “like a broken video game.” Oda has previously made games for Atreyu, Breaking Benjamin, and Chemical Brothers as well. Who could be next to hop on the online retro video game bandwagon? It might be a longshot, but we’d love to see Escape From The Rihanna Plane. That one might be impossible to beat, though.
