Elon Musk gets Cuphead up-and-running in Teslas

Road rage

What's Elon Musk doing when he's not thinking about trips to space, underground tunnels, or self-driving cars? He's playing Cuphead, of course! He's not sitting down with a Switch to play it, though. He's getting behind the wheel of a Tesla to give the game a shot.

Musk has confirmed that his team has worked with Cuphead creators Studio MDHR to get Cuphead up-and-running in a Tesla. Teslas already had various Atari games added to them as Easter eggs, but Musk is stepping things up with Cuphead. Just as with the Atari games, Cuphead can only be played when the car is parked.

As of right now, only Inkwell Isle One is playable due to storage constraints. The team is working on those issues right now, and are aiming to have the game launch sometime this Summer.

The making of King Dice

From "thicc Mugman" to Rampage Easter eggs, there's a lot more to All Bets Are Off! from Cuphead than you'd think. Jared Moldenhauer from Studio MDHR breaks down how it was designed.

Cuphead scene recreated using nothing but duct tape

A sticky situation

Now that's some impressive fan-art. Reddit user Enemyxlasagna has recreated a scene from Cuphead using nothing but different colored duct tape. The end result is something that looks pretty darn close to what you see in-game. I can't imagine duct tape being an easy medium to work with, making the end result even more amazing.

iam8bit releasing Cuphead 2xLP Vinyl Soundtrack

Now go!

The Inkwell Isles of Studio MDHR's Cuphead are a hand-drawn, hand-painted wonderscape where streaming services and digital dohickeys are nowhere to be seen. There, the hop-skipping soundtrack to everyday life rotates at 33rpm, amplified by a copper-horned phonograph. It's a masterclass in authentic jazz music from Kristofer Maddigan, who seems like he must have traveled forward in time from the 1930s to bring this zippy, riotous big band bounty to life. This is, quite simply, the "Best Of" Cuphead, lovingly curated onto a 2xLP, and featuring exclusive new solos never-before-available on vinyl!

- Early Bird Price of $30 only available until May 1

Cuphead dev says the team never set out to make a 'super hard' game

The difficulty cup runneth over

Depending on who you ask, Cuphead is either challenging, or ungodly difficult. It seems to stem from what generation of games you grew up on. At the very least, most can agree that Cuphead is going to punish you a few times along the way. According to Cuphead co-creator Tyler Moldenhauer, the team never had the intentions of making such a difficult experience.

“We never aimed to make it super hard. It was just that we kind of wanted to keep the action intense and that was sort of the way that it came out. Honestly, I find that a lot of people, once you get used to it, once you sort of Grok the controls at that point it’s a lot smoother ceiling. It’s kind of unlearning a lot of things that modern games have taught people that they can just get away with. Once you unlearn those tricks and kind of get back into the game and have a good time.”

Cuphead - more gameplay

Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era: traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.
