Fall Guys gives players phallic freebie following recent cock-up

Tall Guys available in inventories now.

Fall Guys players have a phallic treat awaiting them in their inventories right now, with developer Mediatonic handing out troublingly elongated Tall Guys to one and all following its recent, widely publicised cock-up.

Fall Guys' Tall Guys dissemination comes after last week's in-game store snafu - which saw players recieving snotty customer service responses after a bug in the game caused them to auto-buy cosmetics - and arrives as part of the developer's pledge to remedy its error.

One look at the image accompanying Mediatonic's promise of a "BIG surprise" for all Fall Guys players on Twitter today makes it abundantly clear where the developer's mind was at the time, but the good (?) news is the actual in-game Tall Guys are marginally less phallic than they appear in their promo material - as you can see below.

Fall Guys has, of course, been riding on a fresh wave of popularity following its recent shift to free-to-play. In just two weeks since its relaunch, the game has seen an impressive 50 million players flocking to experience its knockabout battle royale action.

All hasn't been entirely rosy though; aside from the company's disappointing initial response to the recent auto-buy controversy, players have raised concerns over the way its progression and monetisation systems have impacted the experience since the move to free-to-play.
