Ever wondered what The Legend of Zelda would play like as a dubstep-fueled journey through Skrillex’s back catalog? Well thanks to Jason Oda and JODA games, you’re a click away from finding out. His new flash game, Skrillex Quest premiered two days ago, and we gave it a few playthroughs to see if it lived up to it’s grandiose title.
The answer is a resounding “yes”. We join our valiant hero – a blocky, Link-like figure – as he is dropped into a glitch-ridden video game world. You progress through the game by battling and defeating the glitches, with the soaring chords of Summit looped in the background. Your final goal? Save a princess from a block-headed Skrillex, haircut and all. What really caught my eye were the little things. Oda packed enough Easter eggs and quirks into Skrillex Quest to keep you busy and entertained for a solid amount of time. Every sword thrust and area change prompted snippets of classic Skrillex tracks, and I laughed aloud when I discovered a hidden chamber and recovered “The Bangarang”.
Oda has been making musician-centric flash games for some time now; a quick peek at his website shows games designed for The Chemical Brothers, AWOL Nation, and even Fall Out Boy. I think it’s safe to say that none of them dropped as hard as “Skrillex Quest”. In Jason Oda’s own words,
it’s the best game I’ve ever done.”
