“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?”
This is the blurb for Kanye Quest 3030 on its Tumblr page. Yes, we’re a bit late (the game came about a couple years back), but considering the way things are going, the game is as relevant as ever.
The game runs off a very similar engine to the Pokémon series on Gameboy, and transports you to a universe where you play as Kanye to ‘save the world’ from a clone of Lil B and his ‘taskforce’ cronies. We won’t ruin the story for you, and it is definitely worth picking up if you have an hour or so to spare (which is about how long it takes to complete). It also has a bangin’ themed soundtrack, with 8bit versions of all your favourite Hip Hop tracks.
The game is created by independent developer Phenix, and can be downloaded from the link HERE . The game contains plenty of shots at ‘Ye, for example learning new attack moves such as ‘interruption’, and contains cameos from lots of familiar faces in the industry from Nicki Minaj to MF Doom. A game based around Kanye’s overactive ego and The Based God taking over the world, what are you man waiting for? It’s rap knowledge mixed in with a whole lot of humour and the nostalgia of Pokémon, all in a well polished bundle small enough to be completed in one sitting – we have nothing negative to say about it!
