This week, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Season 5 was released with an exciting new theme. It invites players to take a wild and colorful stab in the jungle…but it’s not all as it seems. Ratchet and Clank have made it through the rift to reach the Blunderdome, and they have decided to stay on to host two Limited Time Events. These events offer players extra opportunities to get unique rewards and costumes. PlayStation has teamed up to bring you the details of this extravaganza in dimension-hopping. We also offer an artistic glimpse into how Insomniac Games’ legendary duo came to life in beans!
How to build a bean…
It is an interesting and challenging creative challenge to design Fall Guys costumes that are based on established characters like Ratchet or Clank. We as an Art Team want our costumes to feel more like Fall Guy’s.
This is our goal: to bring this experience back into the lives of players. It’s possible for a player to choose a costume because they think it is cool. We hope that players will choose costumes because they are passionate about the characters and wish to share their love with the world by wearing the Blunderdome.
The Fall Guys created this concept art when they were trying to visualize how Ratchet or Clank might look in bean form.
Ratchet, Clank and the Blunderdome
Fall Guys is a team of passionate gamers who are keen to collaborate with other artists. If there isn’t passion, it’s unlikely that we will get the amazing results Fall Guys fans deserve.
We all wanted it, and we were open to the idea of making both Ratchets and Clank from bean forms. Ratchet and Clank have been a true benchmark as an artist. Their games are full of ambition, and their art direction is always a surprise to me. They are immediately recognisable as characters and appeal, which made it feel like an amazing opportunity.
The Fall Guy emerges from their Clank costumes as the 3D teams begin their work.
We were as excited about bringing Ratchet & Clank costumes to Fall Guys. This presented the Art Team with an old design dilemma. What if you took iconic characters and wrapped them in a bean to make them feel Fall Guy-like?
What is the best way to craft Lombax beans? This is how it works!
We are getting quite proficient at it with several Fall Guys costume collaborations. These rules tell how much of the base Fall Guy must be visible, and how to divide the costume into Upper and Lower parts that can be combined with other costumes. We love to see players’ imaginative and bizarre costume combinations!
The Fall Guys 3D team then brings Ratchet costumes to life.
After establishing these boundaries, we begin with our first concepts. We test shapes and experiment with details that best represent the character of Ratchet or Clank. This is a complex process that ensures Clank’s robotic, chunky features and Ratchet’s iconic Lombax ears look great in the Blunderdome. As we work together to create designs we both love, there is some back-and-forth between the Insomniac Game team and our artists.
These concepts are then transferred to our 3D-savvy team. After a little more discussion, here we are! We believe these costumes, along with a variety of cosmetic goodies, capture the essence and iconic look Ratchet and Clank through the lens of the silly and clumsy Fall Guys. These costumes are so beautiful that we can’t wait to see you get them! Let’s see how it works…
