Kanye West once made a game about a giant dick. Not himself mind, an actual giant phallus with feet and eyes. It’s a far cry from his recent announcement for his game that sees players guiding his dead mum to heaven, that’s for sure.
Turns out he made this particular gem at the tender age of 12, and was actually how he started making beats – his game needed a soundtrack, so I guess we can thank a game about knobs and vaginas for the eventual birth of Graduation. Who’d have guessed?
Mr West recalls:
First beat I did was in seventh grade, on my computer. I got into doing beats for the video games I used to try to make. My game was very sexual. The main character was, like, a giant penis. It was like Mario Brothers, but the ghosts were, like, vaginas. Mind you, I’m 12 years old, and this is stuff 30-year-olds are programming. You’d have to draw in and program every little step—it literally took me all night to do a step, ’cause the penis, y’know, had little feet and eyes.
I kind of want to take that whole quote and put it on a T-shirt.
Sadly no footage of Super Penis Adventure (that’s what I imagine it was called) exists, so we’ll just have to assume that it was a real game-changer. In the meantime, you can check out his new game above, which does actually look quite nice – whatever your opinion on it.
