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.
