DJ Skrillex releasing video game

Hitmaker Skrillex is set to launch his own video game.

The electronic dance music superstar teamed up with developer Jason Oda to create Skrillex Quest, which is set to the 24 year old's music and requires players to fight off a technology virus or glitch in order to save a character named Princess Keys.

Skrillex, real name Sonny Moore, even makes a cameo in the game.

In a post on his Facebook.com page announcing the new technology, Oda writes, "Several months ago I was commissioned to make a game for Skrillex. It was a ton of work and a completely frustrating bulls**t-fest along the way but I am so happy to say that the game is finally, finally officially live!

"I'm super proud of it and really hope you check it out. I really think it's the best game I've ever done...

"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."

A release date has not yet been announced.
