Kanye West has been doing it all. His recently released album “The Life Of Pablo” just hit stores and the numbers are not in yet as to how many records he has sold. But the rapper had something else in store for his fans when he announced that he will be launching a video game by the name “Only One: The Game”.
The game is dedicated to West’s mother, Donda West, who passed away in 2007, and the game is about her travelling through the gates of heaven. Here’s a trailer:
A Gadgets 360 report says that “No Man’s Sky” creator Sean Murray loved the concept and found the game interesting.
“Cool to see Kanye’s game announced. Been secretly excited since they let me play at E3. It’s super interesting and lovely,” tweeted Murray.
He later confirmed that he was serious.
“No Man’s Sky” is an upcoming adventure survival video game developed and published by the indie studio Hello Games. The game won Best Original Game and Best Independent Game by a panel of game critics at the E3 2014 conference according to this BBC report.
Kanye said that he has been running around trying to sell the idea to a video game company. The rapper says that nobody took him seriously when he said he wanted to make a game.
Kanye was quoted in Gadget 360 saying:
“Like, no, you don’t understand! Like, I’ll go and meet with everybody in San Fran, and they’ll diss the f**k out of me,” And I’ll be like, ‘I want to make a game,’ and they’ll be like, ‘f**k you.’ That was hard to do, bro. Man, this s**t was hard to do, man.”
“Only One” has no release date as of now and the platform in which the game will be launched to is still under wraps.
