In Kanye West’s game you’ll escort his mum through the pearly gates

kenye west game donda west

Kanye West’s making a video game that sounds genuinely compelling. It's based on his song 'Only One' and sees you escorting his mather, Donda West, through heaven towards its highest gates, staying with her every step of the way.

"So right now I'm working on a video game for 'Only One,'” Kanye said on Breakfast Club Radio. “The idea is, it's my mother going through the gates of heaven and you have to bring her to the highest gates of heaven by holding her to the light. We've been working on it for like six months."

It appears at about the 55.50 mark.

Donda West died in November, 2007 as a result of coronary artery disease. West released ‘Only One’ in January this year to memorialise her.

I’m fascinated to see how the game turns out, it’s exploring something few games approach and by the smidgen of detail that West has revealed of the game it will be unlike many others. Potentially it could resemble Tale of Tales’ The Path but that’s just speculation.

This isn’t the first time West’s been tied to games. Though, I’m not sure how much input he had on Quest 3030, the JRPG where West travels into the future to rap battle Nicki Minaj and the soul Tupax Shakur.

Cheers, Neogaf and Kotaku.

The one thing I expect with Kanye West is to never be sure what to expect from Kanye West.

Was that second video labeled as music? Even I wouldn't need autotune to produce something as drunken sounding as that was. And yes, no one cares about the game.

Apparently Trey Parker had to deliberately sing off key to get it to sound like Kanye in the Gay Fish parody for South Park.
