As part of Polygon’s exclusive programming for New York Comic Con, I got to chat with Mediatonic’s Jeff Tanton, Megan Ralph, and Oliver Hindle all about the huge success of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout as it heads into its second season (which is available now). The full stream will be available to watch on YouTube today, Oct. 8, at 6:55 p.m. EDT.
We talked about how they balanced fun and challenging gameplay, and about the minigames that didn’t make the cut. We also took a good chunk of time to discuss this specific tweet:
Well, you asked for it...— Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) September 23, 2020
This is official lore now
• Human shown for scale
• Fall Guys are 183cm (6ft)
• This Fall Guy is happy, look into his eyes
• We can't take it back

Although Hindle says he hasn’t “necessarily checked with the team on quite a few of the things” that he tweets out, this drawing will always be canon in my heart.
