Mediatonic’s whimsical battle royale game Fall Guys is the latest craze in gaming, and the fervor around the title is extending beyond gaming circles.
The NHL’s Washington Capitals put out a tweet asking for the developers to add hockey skins to Fall Guys. They created a mock-up showing a blue jelly bean character wearing a Capitals jersey, along with a helmet and skates. KFC’s gaming Twitter account also asked for a special skin for Colonel Sanders. You can see both of the mock-ups below.
Other brands, including Clash Royale and the Get Well Gamers UK charity, also chimed in to call on Mediatonic to release special skins for the game. Clearly, there is a lot of demand for special skins in Fall Guys, and it’ll be interesting to see how Mediatonic responds in time.
Fall Guys does already have some special skins, including Gordon Freeman on PC and a Hotline Miami skin, so there is some precedent for new skins in the game based on other brands.
With more than 2 million sales on PC, Fall Guys is setting records for Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital. The game is free on PS4 with PS Plus, which is surely helping the game reach a wide audience, too.
GameSpot’s Alessandro Barbosa enjoyed his time playing Fall Guys and its variety of mini games. “With its short games and easy-to-grasp mechanics, Fall Guys is easily the most approachable and welcoming battle royale yet,” he said in GameSpot’s review. “Its bursting color and varied game modes do a good job of reeling you in and keeping you hooked, even if a handful feel at odds with the easygoing nature of its premise.”
It hasn’t been totally smooth sailing, however, as cheaters are flocking to Fall Guys to try to get the upper hand.
