Last December, Grimes released a new song From her upcoming album “Book 1.” The track, called “Player Games,” was expected to be inspired by her relationship with Elon Musk. One of the lyrics, “I love the greatest player,” got me thinking: What kind of video games does Musk play when he’s not Reinventing public transportation or allegedly Abuse his employees?
newly Vanity Fair Interview with Grimes Revealed that Musk’s latest obsession is Battle of Polytopia, which he describes as a “more complex version of chess”. Apparently, he’s defeated the creator in his game at least once, which is very proud of him. While he obviously boasts a big mind to his die-hard fans, I wouldn’t be a video game journalist if I hadn’t checked out the game myself. So, I downloaded Polytopia They played one game.
Battle of Polytopia It is a civilization simulation game where you control one of twelve different ‘tribes’. You are trying to expand the territory of your empire by collecting resources, exploring uncharted territory and destroying rival civilizations. In short, it’s a kind of subtle game that might appeal to a white billionaire They benefited from apartheid in South Africa. He loves her so much that at some point, Polytopia Added as a playable game in Tesla cars– You know, before The government started asking questions About a feature that may distract you from driving.
One match was played that lasted 25 rounds. In each round, I can move my military units one distance across the map, and I will be rewarded with stars per turn. These resources can be invested in extractive technologies for things like forestry or fishing, or they can be put into new types of soldiers. The goal was to eliminate as many enemy factions as possible before the end of the turn.
Polytopia Not as complex as Musk described it. If anything, winning over computer-controlled enemies was easier than any chess game you’ve ever played. There were more opponents than in chess, but the difficulty was inherently limited by the number of possible actions per turn. Polytopia is an accessible game for newcomers to the civilization building genre, But this is definitely not what I expected from a so-called “game player”.
