‘Twerk Hero’ Lil Nas Xa is a real game in which you shake your virtual butt towards Monte

Rapper Lil Nas X has just released a free rhythm game in which you are redirected to his new song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. Yes, the chief mechanic is twerking.

It is a free browser game and you can play it right away at this link. If you want to get an idea of ​​how the game works, check out this video he tweeted. Or just use your imagination. That’s exactly what you mean.

I tried it out briefly before writing this post, and I have to admit I had a hard time subordinating my twerke to the arrows on the screen. (What a sentence. Also hello Dad, who receives email notifications whenever I post Verge story.) But the game says I somehow got 43 out of 50 arrows and a two and a half star rating of three. I’m taking it!

The new game is the latest trick from Lil Nas X to help promote the new song. He also collaborated with the online collective MSCHF to release “Satan Shoes,” which were adapted for Nike that reportedly have a drop of blood in them. Nike has sued MSCHF over the shoes, seeking a temporary ban, but MSCHF has said it has no intention of delivering 666. par.
