In case you didn't know, Fall Guys has made some big strides lately. The game now has a native PS5 version, launched on other consoles, and has adopted a free-to-play structure. That's quite a lot of change for the 60-player battle royale platformer, and developer Mediatonic has celebrated in style.
With some marketing money in hand, the game's community team travelled to the British coastal town of Skegness and, er, sponsored a public bench. Yeah, there's an official Fall Guys bench now. In Skegness. Watch the thrilling reveal:
As you can see, this was a massively exciting event, complete with full body Fall Guys costumes, musicians playing the theme song, and even the Mayor of Skegness himself. He officially opens the bench to the world with a Fall Guys plaque — it even had a little curtain for the big reveal.
This is obviously quite silly, but we'd be lying if we said there isn't a part of us that now wants to visit the bench. Push Square staff day out to Skegness? Just putting that out there.
Why Skeggy? Was it the only one place was up for it or do some of the developers have fond childhood memories of their visits there?
err... naff... ? possibly charming, why
Tacky. But since everybody is so desperately into fanservice these days, my opinion counts for little.
Think my mum went to Skegness on holiday when she was a kid and literally nobody had any money whatsoever. From the looks of it, Skegness also hasn’t changed in about 40 years. I do have a soft spot for the fairly crap resort towns though.
@nessisonett It hasn't really changed in years although it's not as good these days as Panda's Palace no longer exists.
@nessisonett we stayed at a Haven in Skegness about 15 years ago when I was a kid and we came home early because it was rough as toast haha
The time before that it was ok but a lot changed in a few years.
Ah Skeggy. aka Posh Cleethorpes.
I have no idea what Skegness is but I like Fall Guys’ marketing and social media content (more than the game itself tbh)
@BritneyfR_ee I went to Butlins down in Bognor Regis back in ‘08 and even that’s probably quite different now. I’m not sure these places hold the same appeal with kids given how perennially online a lot of them are now, I hope they do find a way to survive.
it seems like they forced the popularity of fall guys instead of it being authentically popular . i could be wrong though
Skegness is as good of a beachside town and this is a game. Horrible
@BeerIsAwesome Would you say that their marketing tactics fall short of your standards?
what's a Skegness?
@Hundred_Hand_Slap its a shi**y seaside resort in the UK. Thats about it really 🤷♂️
I love skeggy going to my nans caravan in ingoldmells is better than a holiday abroad for me lol
Spent a whole lot of money for it...I'd ask for an itemized bill/receipts if I were the accounting department
