The upcoming chaotic party game from Mediatonic, Fall Guys, was the most-watched title on streaming platform Twitch over the weekend.
According to various trackers for the service, the title was briefly the most popular game on Twitch during its beta over the last weekend. Fall Guys was beaten only by the Just Chatting category on the streaming service. The beta for the title was available for 48 hours starting on Friday, July 24th.
Upon beating Fortnite in terms of viewership on Twitch that day, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney congratulated Mediatonic for their success.

We were on top of the world.
We looked up and saw only people chatting. Just chatting, they were.
There was no other game above us.
Only games below.
It's games... all the way down.
