New release: Kanye Quest 3030
So, this is apparently a thing. A developer going by the name of Phenix has released an RPG Maker game starring Kanye West, in what has to be the most ludicrous use of a celebrity persona since Barkley: Shut Up and Jam Gaiden. The game, in case the title of this post didn’t tip you off, is Kanye Quest 3030, a “a hip-hop-themed science-fiction 2D roleplaying game starring Kanye West,” with a clear nod to the classic sci-fi hip hop album Deltron 3030 (incidentally: you seriously owe it to yourself to buy that album if you don’t own it already).
In January 2010, as rapper and producer Kanye West is taking the garbage out one day, he suddenly travels through a wormhole. Emerging on the other side, Kanye finds himself in the year 3030. In a dystopian city filled with clones of hip-hop musicians and under the control of a god-like dictator, can Kanye get back home?
The battles are all apparently rap battles that take place against the aforementioned clones, which is kind of amazing. Check out the trailer:
Kanye Quest is absolutely free to download and play; Windows only, though. Grab it here.
