Fall Guys released on August 4th, and since then it has taken over Twitch streams.
The popular computer game (also available on PS4) is like a mix of Mario Party and the television show Wipeout. It's a fun, easy-to-play battle royale game with different stages. Some stages you can play as a team, others you're by yourself. Every round, people get eliminated until there is a lone winner at the end.
The game is perfect for streaming because it's easy to watch, games go by quickly and the way it's made fools anyone into thinking they can win. Fall Guys has exploded into popularity with over 7 million downloads on Steam in under a month. It's also the the most downloaded PlayStation Plus game of all time, per Devolver Digital.
So it was only a matter of time before Fall Guys became competitive. And that's what's happening now with the Twitch Rivals Fall Guys Tournament. Twitch Rivals has introduced Fall Guys Fridays where 80 players in teams of 4 (20 teams total) will compete for a prize pool of $50,000.
