Game publishers seemingly weren’t too hot on battle royale when Fall Guys developers went looking for funding.Fall Guys is easily on of this year’s most successful games.

If this tweet gets a million RTs, Mediatonic will delete yellow team from Fall Guys

By Kirk McKeand, Wednesday, 19 August 2020 09:31 GMT I think we can all agree that Fall Guy’s team games are bad, and some of that fault lies with the dreaded yellow team.

A developer at Mediatonic made a joke that they’re willing to…

Fall Guys – six changes and quality of life updates I want to see in Season 2

The Fall Guys launch was a bit like one of those games you get at a local fair. You know, those quizzes where you have to guess how many beans are in the jar and the closest to the correct amount wins a prize. Developer Mediatonic absolutely lowballed it. There were many more beans in the jar than expected and people struggled to get into a match on launch as millions of beans smashed out and spilled all over the floor. Those launch issues are still present. If you’re playing alone, you likely won’t notice. But if you’re grouped up…
