Fall Guys meets Dark Souls in this perfectly disturbing fan-made video

Audio player loading…

Fall Guys Season Two (opens in new tab) has a charming medieval theme and at least one excellent new minigame. With its Middle Ages aesthetic, dragon costumes, and pudgy little warrior beans dashing around on castle walls and over drawbridges, it's just as bright and colorful as it always was.

But what if it wasn't? On YouTube, Sanadsk (opens in new tab) used the Unreal Engine to create the darkest and grittiest medieval crossover imaginable. Fall Guys Meets Dark Souls (opens in new tab) brings Mediatonic's energetic and wholesome platformer into the bleak and dangerous world of Lordran. Check the video out above. It's fantastic. This should be Fall Guys Season 3.

It's not just the grubby and slightly misshapen beans wearing hideous Dark Souls cosmetics. Sanadsk has also visualized some excellent Dark Souls minigames that include massive spinning wooden wheels and windmills, whirling columns of fire, and lava-filled pits as the hooting competitors leap and fall through The Abyss, Crystal Caves, The Lost City, and more. Prepare to Dive Edition, indeed.

Thanks, Bloody Disgusting (opens in new tab).

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
