Elon Musk's ongoing obsession with "The Witcher" appears to have escalated.

On Tuesday Musk tweeted a poll to his followers asking whether he should make "The Witcher" video game available in Teslas.

"Toss a coin" is a reference to a song from the recent "The Witcher" Netflix series, titled "Toss a Coin to your Witcher." The song went viral, and Musk admitted last week to having the song stuck in his head

Musk was not clear which of the three "Witcher" games he would be adding into Teslas, but the most recent game "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" released in 2015 seems the most likely candidate. The first "Witcher" video game came out in 2007, and was adapted from a series of Polish novels. The Netflix adaptation came out late last year, and is also adapted from the books - while also being highly influenced by the game series.

At time of writing the numbers are heavily stacked in favour of putting "The Witcher" in Teslas, with almost 85% of respondents answering yes.

In the "Witcher" games players play as fictional monster hunter Geralt of Rivia.

Teslas already have a collection of games their owners can play on the car's touchscreen, although "The Witcher" is a significantly more high-powered than any of the games currently available. Generally players use the car's steering wheel as a controller, but the display can also be hooked up to a console controller.

In the comments below his "Witcher" poll, Musk also said Tesla is working on putting the popular engineering game "Kerbal Space Program" into cars.


In "Kerbal Space Program" players build and fly rockets. Musk, who also runs space exploration firm SpaceX, has expressed his fandom for the game in the past.
