Zelda Combined with Skrillex Gives…?

DaveyDecember 16th, 2012 by Davey

…SkrillexQuest. Yes, a new browser based game has been created that combines the mechanics of Zelda with the music of one of the biggest dubstep artists. Not only that, but the premise of the game is that the NES cartridge that the game is running on has collected dust, and this leaves the inside world a corrupted mess. Your job is to fight, slash, and wub wub your way through and save the land! Hit the jump for more!

I hope that all of you that are reading this are Zelda fans, and perhaps some of you are already acquainted with Skrillex. If so, this game will hopefully be a grand union of your two loves. And even if dubstep isn’t your thing, I think you’ll still like playing the game, and there’s always the option to mute.

In addition to this, the art style (minus the glitches) very much resemble Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP a game which I’m very fond of. Though the gameplay is vasty different from Sword and Sorcery, the look of the game brings back a similar feeling.

And although this is an exuberant promotion of Skrillex’s flavor of wub wub, the game itself is definitely worth your time. Why not indulge in a radical, Zelda inspired game once in a while?

If you’re interested, head on over to the official page to play the game!

Did you have a chance to play the game? What did you think? Tell us down in the comments!

    Looks like a cool game. The glitches look annoying, though.

    • Linkfan99

      Those glitches are supposed to be there. It says the world has been left a “corrupted mess”.

      • Midnafan

        that also might just be an excuse cause they couldn’t get rid of the glitches and needed a conflict. who knows? :/

        • Linkfan99

          nah, if you play it, they look nothing like real “glitches” would look like. If you weren’t joking, that is.

  • PalaeoJoe

    When I press the start button the screen on the web sight goes dark. How do I play?

    • -DuCkTApE-

      You have to wait a little bit.

  • HunterP

    The only thing good about this is it’s Zelda inspired.

    • Midnafan

      that’s the only good thing about a lot of things.

      • baileygirl99

        True dat.

  • Tehlul

    But Dubstep sucks…

    • Dubstep

      You suck… your mom’s dick.

      • hunterP

        This comment is a great example of anyone that listens to dub step.

    • Zelda2infinity

      Well at least it doesn’t blow… like you!

      • Tehlul

        I think I might cry,
        That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me

    • Linkfan99

      Hey, that’s just an opinion. I am personally not a big fan of dubstep, but that doesn’t mean that it downright “sucks” in general. Other people can have their own opinions about it.

    • CaptainX24

      Skrillex is hardly a dubstep artist, etc etc

      • eva

        Skrillex doesn’t make dubstep!

        • CaptainX24

          Yes, that’s what I was saying

    • Super Smash Sis

      Screw you. Not ALL dubstep sucks. Some of it can sound cool at times.

  • Emily

    This was really cool.

  • wert

    I am error

  • GreenHat

    THIS IS BLASPHEMY

  • Vegerotto

    Waiting forever for it to start up…

  • muto

    well just beat it and um weird

  • mawk

    No. This wouldn’t work out well for me. Dubstep is probably my most hated genre of music. I don’t think it would go well with my favorite video game franchise

    • baileygirl99

      Dude, or girl, same here.

  • Hylia

    Maybe if it was Lindsey Stirling’s music..

  • ancel22

    it was fun

  • Midnafan

    my only thoughts are :wtf?! o_O

  • ZeldaTeacher

    That was waaaay too weird…every time the glitches hit you the whole screen glitches…which I know is the point, it just stressed me out.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MaaShinn Matthew Shannon

    can we mute it?

  • Beauts

    Hahahahaha this is so funny. I hate Skrillex though but I like the premise of the game, it’s hilarious XD

  • Your mother larry

    SkillexQuest… are you serious? EW.

  • Linkfan99

    even if you don’t like dubstep, this game still sucks without volume compared to with.
    The “wub wub”s match up with your sword swing, and stuff.

  • christburner

    seriously……..what the fuck is wub wub….

  • 1544C

    Just try the game, if you don’t like his music just mute it.
    I love the part where you need 5 keys but you can still break the locks with your sword before you run out of time

  • Roth

    Zelda and Skrillex?
    I’ll stick with this for now, thank you.
