Fall Guys, released last year, was a surprise hit. The game was essentially a new take on the battle royale genre, think Takashi’s Castle. The developers have continued to support the game with a steady stream of new content, although they might have accidentally leaked the game’s source code with the latest one.
Twitter user Pavel Djundik first spotted this. The developers have managed to take down the files since.
Wow. I thought you were joking: pic.twitter.com/MywzxFUkqd

We can’t be sure of the impact this will have on the game yet, given we don’t know the scale of the leak. But this certainly is bad news; especially concerning the game’s anti-cheat mechanism, where hackers can potentially use the source code to improve their hacks and make them harder to detect.
