The Mediatonic crew was completely blown away by the reception Fall Guys acquired from the PlayStation group after we revealed it final 12 months throughout E3. However we haven’t mentioned an excessive amount of concerning the recreation since then as a result of we’ve been arduous at work on dwelling as much as these lofty expectations. We’re kicking off the hype prepare on the trail in direction of launch with our first in a sequence of movies referred to as “Behind the Stumbles” that takes a peek backstage to see what makes the Fall Guys magic occur.
The primary episode of the Behind the Stumbles sequence is aptly named “What’s Fall Guys” as our crew feels it’s extremely essential for example that it’s a giant, bouncy multiplayer recreation for gamers of every kind. Our aim was to make Fall Guys the “best recreation present ever” with clear inspirations from Takeshi’s Citadel and the lesser identified It’s A Knockout. Each recreation reveals put their contestants in such uncommon and generally ridiculous situations that any benefits obtained by way of ability would usually be mitigated by the weird variables of the impediment programs and bumbling paths of the opposite contestants. We would like gamers to really feel each like they’re completely in management whereas on the similar time accepting that there are forces nicely past their management that would simply break their nicely laid plans.
The design of the Fall Guys themselves performs into this sense. From the stubby legs and arms that result in a number of falls and close to misses to the cumbersome wanting costumes, the Fall Guys are virtually arrange for failure from the beginning, although you’ll be able to’t assist however root for his or her success. Finally their failure is what results in the hilarious bodily comedy of the sport and a few of the extremely tense moments of competitors, one thing we expect will preserve gamers coming again to excellent their abilities and up their avoidance of doubtless catastrophic conditions.
What makes Fall Guys one thing particular is placing these hordes of unwieldy Fall Guys gamers collectively in foolish costumes and setting them free in escalating rounds of chaos till just one triumphs. As we are saying right here, we would like gamers to Stumble Towards Greatness.
Our group can’t wait to share extra as we march in direction of launch on PlayStation four later this 12 months. We hope you get pleasure from our first Behind the Stumbles video and look ahead to sharing extra that concentrate on different parts of the sport just like the insane costumes, raucous phases, and superior methods for fulfillment from the those who designed the sport. And preserve an eye fixed out for our upcoming open beta, that must be a fairly wild time.
