Fall Guys Continues Strong Showing on Twitch Last Month

Published

twitch news

Fall Guys, the smash summer hit from Mediatonic, continues it’s impressive run as one of the most popular games streaming on Twitch, coming in second as the biggest game on Twitch last month, according to The Verge (via StreamElements and Arsenal.gg).

Another game making it’s own impression on Twitch was Among Us, which has crept up 650 percent in hours watched from last month, placing them 11th in the most popular categories on the platform, and things seem to indicate that those numbers will climb over the next month.

“These easy-to-learn and fun-to-watch games let creators play with their fans, which is a great way to engage an audience,” said StreamElements CEO Doron Nir, according to Forbes. “It’s the influencers and not the games that have been driving the success of these titles, as illustrated by 2018’s Among Us skyrocketing up the charts simply because some top streamers decided to play an older game. While this movement will most likely lead to new party games, it’s a great opportunity for brands to look at their catalogs to see if an older game might fit in with the current trend and be worth reinvesting in.”

While those popular titles are growing, so is Twitch, which posted its first month-over-month rise during the month of August since April of this year, with 1.47 billion hours watched, topping the 1.42 billion mark reached back in April, and has Twitch seeing an impressive 57% growth year-over-year.

Games continue to dominate, but other categories such as cooking shows are seeing a bump in their popularity as well, as Twitch’s Food & Drink category is up 96% year-over-year.

Numbers show that Félix “xQc” Lengyel is the most popular streamer on Twitch, joined by  Alexandre “gAuLeS” Borba, Nick “NickMercs” Kolcheff, and Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar at the top of those charts.
