Fall Guys, the newest craze to take over everyone’s streams on Twitch, is notoriously difficult to win, and has left TimTheTatman struggling for an elusive ‘crown.’ So much so, that the game’s official Twitter account just won’t stop roasting him.

So far, Tim, one of the biggest streamers on the platform, is yet to get a win. This, of course, has been much to his embarrassment and encouraged his fellow content creators to mock him endlessly.

What Tim maybe didn’t expect though, was for the official Twitter account for the game to get in on the action. The FallGuysGame account has been very active since the game released, possibly even contributing to the game’s popularity.

Everyone’s been playing Fall Guys – but not everyone’s been winning.

It all seems to have started when esports organization FaZe Clan asked their followers to tag someone who’d never get the crown. Unexpectedly, Fall Guys tagged poor TimTheTatman.

At this stage, Tim was just surprised to get a shout out at all, even if it was a roast. He simply responded “holy sh*t.”

But, FallGuysGame wasn’t done there. They followed up “been told to swing by and ask you how many crowns you have?” No response this time from Tim.

Things got real when the account just kept pestering him, asking him why he’d taken all the L’s.

Realizing it might be getting a bit brutal, Fall Guys eased off a bit, and gave Tim some good news. It turns out, he’s not actually the worst player in the game, instead, he’s second last.

NICKMERCS was having a great time with all the constant roasts too, and decided to highlight just how bad Tim really is, and show the world. Fall Guys were quick to respond: “embarrassing.”

To help Tim in his time of despair, Fall Guys made the very generous offer to simply gift his account a crown, so that everyone could finally stop roasting him.

Instead, Tim wanted his own character in the game.

But, Fall Guys’ latest roast is possibly their best. “We thought maybe we could film ourselves winning,” they said, “and then you could just stream our video while you pretend to play?”

Unfortunately, Tim desperately needs to win himself a crown before the endless slander will stop. Although, it’s not certain even that would stop it.

The Fall Guys’ community manager, @OliverAge24, has been doing remarkable things with the account, and certainly knows how to grow a Twitter following. Less than a month ago, on July 20, they had 15,000 followers. On August 17, they have over 800,000.

The popularity of the game itself has been a major factor too, but their Twitter game is also on top form.

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

The underground YouTube star has become an Among Us sensation.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
