Mediatonic and Devolver's Fall Guy: Ultimate Knockdown is rising exponentially since it's launch, so it's not surprising that brands are fighting for in-game exclusive costumes or products to gain something from the action.
Bid Wars for Charity
According to VG427, a few of the brands wanting to work with the game are KFC, Konami, and even Walmart--and now, they have the chance.
However, Mediatonic will only create these in-game exclusives inspired by the brands if they are willing to be a little more charitable in the so-called Battle of the Brands, which basically pits these brands against each other for a chance at a Fall Guys costume.
The announcement was made via the game's official Twitter account.
After 2 Weeks, the highest bidder will win!
We will DM to confirm any boring legal paperwork, and then after they donate, we'll post it publicly to confirm!
If we decide that your brand is offensive/unsuitable, we will yeet your pledge out and pick the next highest! — Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) August 17, 2020
"The thirst from brands has been unreal... so we're turning it into something positive," the developers wrote, and the price is none other than an exclusive Fall Guys in-game costume with their brand on the design.
Pledge to Enter
It seems like any brand can enter, and the mechanics of the battle is simple: they have to reply to the official tweet with the highest amount they are willing to donate to SpecialEffect, a UK-based charity that helps people with physical disabilities play and enjoy games.
The developers then followed up with a tweet saying, "We will DM to confirm any boring legal paperwork, and then after they donate, we'll post it publicly to confirm!" and tagged some of the big brands that have shown interest in working with Mediatonic, Devolver, and the game.
The Battle of the Brands is faring rather well, kicking off with a $10,000 pledge from gaming companies, and then at one point, a bidet manufacturer led the race with a $40,000 pledge and pitching a costume design of a t-shirt with the words, "Ask me about my butthole."
According to the news outlet, the current lead is G2 Esports with a $130,003 pledge.
Fall Guys Scams
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockdown is currently on PlayStation 4 and PC only, but because of its popularity, tons of people are asking whether the game will be on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or maybe on smartphones.
Because of this, some are using the game's momentum to scam others.
According to Inverse, some internet trolls are scamming people, saying they know how to download and install Fall Guys on either iOS or Android devices.
Based on the report, there are already videos on YouTube and all over the internet claiming that they can teach you how to play Fall Guys on smartphones, and they would show videos of the game's gameplay before telling the viewers to go to a third-party website to download the game.
However, before you can play the game, you'll have to play other titles first.
Nevertheless, doing so could make your phone vulnerable to viruses and malware that could also get your personal information stolen.
The game is already bringing this to their followers' attention via Twitter, saying that these ads are scams, and the videos have been fabricated to appear like the game can be played on smartphones.
