A Very Silly Parody

If you've ever played Fall Guys, you have likely been filled with a white-hot murderous rage at one point or another. Now, you can blow off some steam by shooting beans in Doom Guys, a brand-new fan-made game that you can play for free.

Doom Guys is the brainchild of Romain Bayer, a game developer with skills in scripting and level design. He put those skills to good use by making what may be one of the strangest crossover games we've ever seen.

 
 

Check out some gameplay from Romain Bayer's Twitter to see what it's all about!

Bayer created the project over a period of two weeks as a way to build up his level design skills and to dig deeper into coding with Unity and C#. While the game makes use of the music from Doom's original 1996 release and Fall Guys, "almost all": of the assets and textures were created by Bayer.

I took a quick moment to check it out. On its face, this is a Doom clone, but it also has a few modern conventions. Notably, it makes use of physics blocks to secure doorways, a feature that wasn't in any of the original Doom games. It's kind of like playing the Gate Crash game except you can blast doors open with a shotgun.

How Do I Get the Doom Guys Game?

You can get the Doom Guys game pretty easily! Simply head on over to Romain Bayer's Itch.io page and download it for yourself.

Doom Guys is certainly a neat project, but you should be warned that it's awfully short. It took me roughly ten minutes to complete the level, so don't expect to get more than an hour or so of fun out of this game.

You might not want to sit around and wait too long, either. All of the involved companies between these two franchises — iD Software, Bethesda Softworks, Mediatonic, and Devolver Digital — are generally pretty cool with allowing fan works to be created and there likely won't be any problems here, especially since this is a free, fan-made game. That said, there's always the chance of something happening to fan-made projects.

As for the games this fan-made project is based on, those will actually cost you a few bucks. You can pick up Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout if you're looking for something to get you raging and you can blow off some steam by playing Doom Eternal.
