Kanye West announces “Only One: The Game”

Kanye dit glo?

Last year, we heard that “the greatest living rock star on the planet” would soon be starring in his own video game. I had hoped with all of my heart that it would be called Kanye Quest (Where Kanye West, filled with Kanye Zest does his Kanye Best to open Kanye Chests…but Imma Kanye Rest) – but it looks like he’s gone with something a little more subdued.

The game is being made to tie in with his hit song Only One (You know, the one that made some ragged old British guy named Paul McCartney famous).

“Right now I’m working on a video game for ‘Only One’. 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.”

That game has now been teased with trailer, and given an official name. For somebody who quite happily calls himself a “creative genius” the name of the game borders on the mundane. It’s been called “Only One: The Game.” It looks to be an endless runner of sorts, not entirely dissimilar to Adult Swim’s old flash game, Rainbow Unicorn Attack. According to West the game has now been in development for a year and a half, but no platforms have been announced.

While it may not be particularly creative, his decision to call it “Only One” is probably apt – because I suspect that’s what it’ll end up with as its score on Metacritic.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Commander Admiral Chief
    • Hammersteyn

      Because his wife released the best mobile game EVER!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      It’s obvious…

    Dat alt-text! Jy wen R50 met die komplimente van ABSA!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Knowing this delusional knobhead he’s probably called it “Only One” because he thinks it’s the only one people will play after it’s released.

  • Hammersteyn

    The header, the alt text. I lolled!

  • Jan Prins

    Who’se gonna be the guide in this game? North West?

  • Unavengedavo

    The art style of the game kinda looks cool. But other than that, why would anyone want to play it? O_o

  • Mossel

    Kanye my albasters vir my vind?

  • konfab

    Well his wife is a Hobbit…

  • lo zero

    I’m actually quite moved by this trailer 😮

    The quality of your video is crap tho… I added one to my youtube of far better quality if anyone interested ( http://www.youtube.com/lozero )

    • Wait. What?! People can actually separate and artist (and their personality) from their art. In this day and age?! Color me impressed! I’m with you. Truth be told, I think the art style is pretty cool, and somewhat inspired. I’ll wait to see gameplay and probably give it a shot once it’s released.

      P.S. My first remark may have had a snarkier tone than I intended (I’d like to think I’m not a snarky person). I think I’m just jaded at seeing knee-jerk reactions to things that don’t seem to need them.
