Last week saw reports from many case guywith players complaining about accidental purchases. Today, in response to these problems, fall guys Developer Mediatonic sent each active player a decidedly phallic-looking in-game costume. It’s also offering refunds to affected players while it works to fix its store.
As reported by VGC last Fridaynumerous players on the fall guys subreddit shared stories of accidentally purchasing stuff with the game’s premium currency when opening the store to preview an item. To make matters worse, the response one player received from customer support to this “auto-buying” error was poorly received, with the support rep allegedly claiming the error was not a bug and that accidental purchases still counted and didn’t could be reimbursed. That went about as well as you’d expect, which led to a tweeted apology from Mediatonic on July 15th and a promise to both refund purchases and give everyone a new, bigger-looking (!) case guy Skin.
Today this skin is here. I went through my inventory and lo and behold, I am now the proud owner of a new legendary costume called “Grandis.” This is not the first time fall guys offered this rather uh…pole-like outfit for the in-game beans, but this version of the costume changes the hue based on your bean’s selected color theme, which is nice.
For some reason people run away fall guysThe official Twitter account has decided to announce the new outfit going live via a tweet with a very menacing aura.
The responses to the tweet were very much what you expect, with many people pointing out that the shadowy figure looks a lot like a dick. Some used Twitter’s sensitive content filter to post joke replies about how big it is. Y’know, dick jokes. Doesn’t matter how early in the week it is, a good dick joke is funny.
More importantly than this new costume is that Mediatonic is going to be honoring all refund requests on cosmetic items bought after June 21, and moving forward until the in-game store is fixed and updated.
fall guys has exploded in popularity lately after the game made the leap to free-to-play. Mediatonic reported that the game was played by 50 million people just two weeks after the change. That’s a big dick energy right there.
