The long-speculated and much-anticipated battle between two of the tech world’s heaviest hitters, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, has finally come to fruition. But twist your expectations, because their clash isn’t taking place in a boxing ring—it’s happening in the virtual world of an indie fighting game.
From Podcast Tease to Pixelated Punch-Out
The seeds of this unlikely duel were sown in a conversation between Musk and Zuckerberg earlier in 2023, with a hint dropped by Musk during a Joe Rogan podcast on October 31, 2023. Fast forward to now, and while the real-life version of the bout remains uncertain, the indie game ‘RoboSquad Revolution’ has taken the opportunity to bring this fantasy fight to life in its latest release.
Reptilian Zuckerberg vs. Musk in Gaming Arena
The game’s developers played up the parody by introducing characters modeled after Musk and Zuckerberg, with a trailer showcasing a digital boxing match that ends with Musk’s character being knocked out by a powerful punch from a reptilian Zuckerberg. This creative take is a nod to the viral meme that humorously suggests Zuckerberg might be more than human, an idea that gained traction due to his often-critiqued public demeanor.
Verified Punches and Open Beta Action
In a cheeky reference to recent events, the game trailer even features the digital Musk uttering “get verified” while throwing a punch, likely alluding to real-world developments on Twitter. While the fate of their real-life face-off remains in the air, eager gamers and onlookers can step into the shoes of these tech moguls in the game’s open beta, currently available on Steam for free play.
The virtual ring awaits where players can orchestrate the high-stakes showdown between Musk and Zuckerberg, deciding for themselves who takes the title in the tech arena—no gloves required.
