Back in 2013, a RPG Maker game was released called Kanye Quest 3030. AS far as we know, this was not an official game from Kanye West and his team, but it did include his digital likeness. Why am I bringing up this game? Theorists, I think there is a dark secret hiding within it. An ARG with some... less than pure intentions. It is time to unravel the mystery that was Kanye Quest 3030.

    Pyramid...Software...Hackers recruiting peolpe...wait a minute

  • histrion2

    So the fact that web pages mentioning Ascensionism existed a "whopping" five years before the game was released is supposed to convince us of its reality? I think it's far more likely that either Phenix (1) was playing a long game or (2) created an even less famous game before KQ3030 that also linked to Ascensionism.

    I'm disappointed in you MatPat, you misquoted Kanye. He said, "I am A god". A god (little 'g') is not the same thing as saying I am God.

    All I’m saying is Ascensionism sounds a whole lot like a discount Scientology.

    I believe the reason no one has interacted with the people who gave information is because they want to google earth your location. If you're secluded, you will get kidnapped or taken or something, but if you're in a city or town where lots of people are about, they may leave you alone.

      Hey dear, sorry to hear about Kevin, have you tried rubbing Lavender essential oils and using tea tree oil on his pillow twice a night? Gets the cancer right outta ya! My son in law used it to treat his leukemia and he hasn't had any issues since! we're thinking of using it on our adopted daughter she has a bad case of the aspergers. its either that or an exorcism!

    The files of Kanye Quest actually don't contain anything that would report back to a server so when you put in your personal information it doesn't go anywhere

    If your personal information is entered into the app, it'd need to be transmitted over the Internet for anyone to take action on it. Run Wireshark as you're filling the form out to see where the app is reaching out to. That could show be an irrefutable link.

    • AnAverageNerd

      Mamamax made a video about kanya quest that went over this

    • AnAverageNerd

      Rpg maker dosen't have anything that would allow you to send stuff to servers people have also datamined the game and didn't find anything that sent that info any where
