Download a hip hop-themed RPG starring Kanye West

Kanye Quest 3030 is a role-playing game which sees Yeezy transported to a dystopian future.

FACT have noted that Kanye West is the star of a new roleplaying game, Kanye Quest 3030, developed by amateur designers Phenix. The game is “a hip-hop-themed science-fiction 2D roleplaying game” which sees Kanye transported through a wormhole to a dystopian future, where other rappers – Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Lil B, and Tupac – are under the influence of a dictator.

The game was developed using RPG Maker VX, a popular amateur game-making program that is essentially used to make clones of early Final Fantasy games and other turn-based RPGs. It’s all vaguely reminiscient of Tale Of Game’s excellent Barkley, Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden.

You can go here to download the early alpha version of the game, although due to the nature of the program, it’s only available for Windows users.

Now is as good a time as any to dig up our two-part Dummy Guide to Video Game Music – read it here and here.
