Fall Guys Season 4.5’s long list of new features includes cross-play

You don't have to be developed by a large, famous game company to make it big in the industry. You just need unique and addictive elements to get people, sometimes even politicians, hooked. Indie titles like Among Us and Fall Guys definitely aren't your cookie-cutter triple-A games but they still rake in hundreds if not thousands of faithful players.
