Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has revealed that the incredibly difficult cartoon platformer, Cuphead, will soon be playable in its fleet of electric vehicles.
Speaking on the company’s weekly podcast, Ride the Lightning, Musk says the developers of Cuphead “have been helping us make it work” on the vehicles’ dashboard screens.
“It’s a cool game,” he continued. “It’s insanely difficult. It’s sadistically difficult. It’s a twisted plot. It’s dark. It looks like some cute little Disney thing and you’re like, ‘This plot is very dark’.”
Released in 2017, Cuphead is a notoriously difficult game with a beautiful, hand-drawn visual style. While the whole thing won’t be playable due to space restrictions, you’ll eventually be able to smash through the Inkwell Isle One part of it.
It’s not known when the game will actually be made available for the electric cars, but it’ll come to the Model 3, Model S, and Model X. It seems like it’s coming along nicely, though, with the developer, Studio MDHR, saying it already runs “nice and clean,” which was the only requirement for the port, IGN reports.
Given Cuphead relies heavily on precise movements, it needs to run at a decent frame rate. It’s also the reason you can’t play it using the touchscreen controls, you’ll need a wired USB controller to give it a whirl when it becomes available.
For very obvious reasons, games can only be played while the car is in park. Model 3, S, and X vehicles already include a bunch of Atari games like Lunar Lander, Asteroids, and more.
So if you own a Tesla and want to feel a deep and pure rage while you’re parked somewhere, I guess this a great news for you.Image: Studio MDHR
