Fall Guys is gearing as much as launch its second season later this week, and the builders have been showcasing extra of what we are able to count on within the medieval-themed content material when it drops and revealing some attention-grabbing inspirations for a lot of British youngsters who grew up within the naughties.
Speaking in a fascinating interview with IGN, lead sport designer Joe Walsh revealed that, whereas the unique season and core sport idea was impressed by worldwide sport exhibits like Takeshi’s Castle and Total Wipeout, new sport Knight Fever seemed a little bit nearer to residence: “This TV show called Raven that (…) had this thing called The Way Of The Warrior, where the person who was rubbish at Raven would get a go at completing this obstacle course in order to qualify. For those who don’t know, it’s a kids’ TV show with a high fantasy style and an amazing Scottish host. It’s just a great obstacle course with some really scary-looking obstacles.”
Walsh and junior degree designer Joseph ‘JJ’ Juson additionally cited 1995 film First Knight that starred Richard Gere and Sean Connery as one other inspiration for Knight Fever, saying “He (Gere) goes through this epic swinging obstacle course of swinging scythes and that was in our brains, like, ‘That’s pretty good. We should probably use that.'” Those two foundations helped them create Knight Fever — a 60 individual race degree that sees gamers racing to the end whereas avoiding scythes, crossing rolling spiked logs and avoiding an enormous swinging log generally known as Thicc Bonkus.
It’s additionally attention-grabbing to notice throughout the interview that the crew are already making certain that they are capable of plan remixing the brand new content material sooner or later—much like the mid-season replace did for the earlier season—with Juson saying: “One of the things we’re thinking about when we’re making our levels now, which is different, is how we’re going to remix this more down the line. We know exactly how the system works and we know what’s fun. We know what people like. I think the thrill of it is those surprises, moments that you didn’t expect to see in this level because you know it so well. So we definitely want to keep this level fresh – we’re leaving these sections, giving them more space to be able to play with in the future”
