Hands down, Zelda is one of the most iconic and well know series of all time. While the magic of Zelda hasn’t captured me in recent years, that's not to dismiss the series as dead. I think there are plenty of possible routes Nintendo could traverse with Zelda to make it mesmerizing again. I have my own ideas on what the next Zelda game, be it 3DS or Wii U, should be. But that’s a different article altogether.
For this week's Bizarre Bits, my friend Lauren and I experience the majesty of Skrillex Quest. It and many other indie titles out there dare to do what Zelda doesn't: innovate. Suffice it to say Skrillex Quest will not be the only Zelda inspired indie game I look at be it in Bizarre Bits, Nerdiosity Adventures, or what have you. Now on to the game itself.
Skrillex Quest follows a hero who must save his cartridge kingdom from becoming glitched out of existence. The hero is tasked with retrieving keys in order to save the princess, who holds the power to vanquishing this glitch evil. It plays like the NES Zelda if it was redone in blocky 3D. The best part of the game is the Skrillex’s music, which developer Jason Oda based the game off of.
So there you go Nintendo. Take one part dubstep, one part Zelda, mash them together, and you create one of my favorite experiences of the past month. It’s not the most amazing “game” per say, but it’s a great experience. And, need I add, bizarre as hell.
