Fall Guys has a crying new character.
Radiohead is making waves in the video game world this week. Not only did the British rock band release their own video game, Kid A Mnesia Show, but the band found its way into Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. A new skin based on the band’s “Crying Minotaur” design is now available to players, but it’s a timer skin and will only be available for a short time.
The official Fall Guys Twitter account tweeted the Radiohead skin news along with a short clip of it in action. The clip shows off the same white skin as the hand-painted creature commonly found in Radiohead’s album notes. With pointy ears, large round eyes, and a mouth full of sharp teeth, this little creature is cute, if not a bit grotesque. Though why it’s called a minotaur when it doesn’t necessarily resemble the mythical creature is anyone’s guess.
The leather, available between now and November 21, will set you back five crowns for the bottom half and five crowns for the top. So if you have a crown to spare and are a fan of Radiohead, this is the perfect partnership for you.
The Fall Guys collaboration isn’t the only video game Radiohead is involved in. The rock band recently released their own game for Mac, PC and PS5. Kid A Mnesia Exhibit is a video game where the player can walk through an art museum-like gallery filled with Radiohead pictures and music from Kid A and the band’s Amnesiac. Take to the official Blog PlayStation, head Thom Yorke shared how the game came from a planned installation in London, which has apparently been killed off by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Radiohead has been an influential band in the art and music worlds for many years, and now that influence is creeping into the world of video games. This isn’t the first time Radiohead has had an impact on video games with titles like Transistors and Hades admits to using the band as inspiration for the characters and the aesthetic.
If Arcane piqued your interest in League of Legends, there are better ways to experience Runeterra than playing the game.
