Nice to meet you. I am cHask, a blogger and video contributor.
Before we go any further, let me just conclude that FallGuys is only available for Windows, and no official Mac version has been released.
However, you can play FallGuys on your Mac by using Parallels Desktop, which allows you to build a virtual Windows environment inside your Mac.
You can also play with the free trial version, so try it!

2 ways to play FallGuys on Mac [M1 support]
There are 2 ways to play FallGuys on a Mac, and each method is described in detail below.
- Install Windows with BootCamp (M1 not supported)
- Deploy Windows with Parallels Desktop
Method 1: Install Windows with BootCamp (M1 not supported)
FallGuys does not support Macs, but you can use BootCamp, which allows you to install Windows on a Mac with an Intel CPU.
BootCamp features the following and was the typical method of installing Windows until the M1-chip Mac was introduced.
- Be able to choose Mac or Windows at startup.
- BootCamp is already installed on the Mac from the beginning.
- Easy to install as long as you have a Windows license
However, BootCamp does not support Macs with M1 chips or later, and can only be used on older Macs with Intel CPUs.
In terms of age, Macs released after 2020 are not supported
If you have a Mac with an Intel CPU, simply follow the instructions in BootCamp to install Windows and play FallGuys.
However, when installing Windows on a Mac with BootCamp, the following Windows license is required.
Method 2: Deploy Windows with Parallels Desktop
If you want to play FallGuys on a M1 chip or later Mac, Parallels Desktop you can create a Windows virtual environment so you can play.
To begin with, Parallels Desktop is software that allows you to run Windows, Linux, etc. on your Mac, with the following advantages.
- Mac processing speed does not slow down much and runs light
- Copy and paste or drag and drop between Mac and Windows
- Easier to use Windows than Boot Camp
- Compatible with Macs with M1 chip or later (Boot Camp is not supported)
Currently, the only way to install Windows on a Mac with an M1 chip or later is Parallels Desktop, so this software is essential if you want to play FallGuys on a Mac.
There is a free trial version of Parallels on the official website, so if you want to put a Windows virtual environment on your Mac, try it.
Two ways you can’t play FallGuys on a Mac
The following methods are also available for playing Windows-only games on a Mac, but neither is supported by FallGuys.
- cloud gaming service
- Launch iPhone application (M1 or later)
Not supported1: Cloud gaming services
Macs can use cloud gaming to launch Windows-only games, but FallGuys is not yet supported.
To begin with, cloud gaming is a service that allows you to enjoy high-load PC games on your smartphone or tablet by using an Internet connection.
With cloud gaming, the game processing is borne by the service provider’s servers, and there is virtually no burden on our phones and tablets.
In other words, we, the users, are “remotely controlling a high-spec gaming PC” and can comfortably play games that cannot be played on a smartphone or tablet.
Currently, GeForce Now is the most widely available type of cloud gaming service, but FallGuys has not been released.
Looking forward to future correspondence.
Therefore, if you want to play FallGuys on a Mac, you will need a Windows environment, so we recommend installing something like Parallels Desktop.
Not supported 2: Launching iPhone apps
M1 and later Macs can also run iPhone apps, but only some apps are supported, not FallGuys.
AmongUs would have supported it.
Frankly, it is unlikely that it will be supported in the future, so if you want to play FallGuys, you will need Windows.
I recommend Parallels Desktop because you can easily prepare a Windows environment and play from a Mac.
