A Fall Guys fan is petitioning developer Mediatonic to change the game’s initial player count from 60 to 69 because memes.
The Change.org petition simply states: “It would be nice to make the lobby’s [sic] 69 players.” Though not too many people have pledged their name at the moment, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this took off. If you want to sign it you can do so here (though note that Fall Guys is currently sad about NSFW content).
Fall Guys has been meme-central since the game launched on PC and PlayStation 4 earlier this summer, thanks in no small part to the official Fall Guys Twitter account.
Run by a community manager, the Fall Guys account is making serious waves across the internet, with multiple brands including Spotify now getting involved with the game and its social media accounts.
It’s not all for the banter though, as earlier this year the Fall Guys Twitter auctioned off the chance to have an in-game skin made. A number of high-profile gamers and companies threw their hats into the ring, with all money going to gaming charity Special Effect.
The Fall Guys ‘Battle of the Brands’ competition drew to a close with a staggering $1m joint donation from Aim Lab, G2 Esports, Ninja, and Mr Beast. However, you can absolutely still donate to Special Effect (find out more about how to do that here).
If (somehow) you haven’t heard, Fall Guys is Battle Royale for up to 60 online players, and pits you against hordes of other delightful jelly bean-looking things as you battle for superiority. Unlike your typical BR game, you won’t be besting the rest by being a sharp shooter, but instead by pulling tails off your competitors, collecting eggs, crashing through walls and trying to keep your balance. It’s available now on Steam and PlayStation 4.
