Be careful, this app looks like spyware.  

While I was configuring browser permissions for remote conferencing, I got a popup saying Pikuniku would like to read input from your keyboard.  I clicked Deny.  Because Pikuniku has no business doing any such thing

This is on OSX.  Check under System Preferences, Security and Privacy, Privacy, Input Monitoring and delete it!

BRUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. WHY WOULD IT BE SPYWARE. I MEAN ITS ON XBOX AND SWITCH AND I EVEN PLAY IT WITH NO PROBLEMS AT ALL. BESIDES IT'S DEVOLVER DIGITAL, THE PEOPLE WHO PUBLISHED FALL GUYS. DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD MAKE THIS A VIRUS. ALSO, IT'S READING THE INPUT FROM YOUR KEYBOARD SO THAT YOU CAN PLAY THE GAME.

lol it wants input from  your keyboard because it needs the input so you can control the things in game.

But it asked me for this permission while the game wasn't active.  I was setting up a work zoom call and this popup appeared.

Certain versions of Unity do this on certain versions of Mac. At the game engine's forums:

Some other instances in the wild:

It's neither this game nor its devs, nor is the game spying on you. You should learn to ask questions instead of making accusations when you're confused.
