Squid Game took over Netflix when it was originally released on September 17, 2021. The Korean drama about a deadly competition broke tons of Netflix records when it was released, including 1.65 billion hours of watch time in the first 28 days of its release. To put that into perspective, that equates to over 182,000 years in just its first 28 days.
Since then, we have seen many various spin-offs that people have created because of how successful the series really turned out. Even famous YouTuber Mr. Beast created his own version of Squid Game where he even gave away money to the winner. It is clear how much this series has taken over the world.
In other news, not only was a second season of Squid Game announced by Netflix, but casting was also announced for a reality TV competition inspired by the series. And it has one of the biggest cash prizes in reality history. Casting is now open, and you can compete for your share of $4.56 million if you are one of the 456 contestants chosen.
With how many spin-offs and different takes on the Squid Game show that we are getting., it is hard to believe that we have not gotten a sniff at a Squid Game video game. I think that one is going to be coming soon rather than later. After all, with how successful this show has been, a video game would be sure to sell a plethora of copies if done right.
With Netflix recently launching its own catalog of mobile games, some inspired by their own series, there’s officially a home for where it could live. And, funny enough, they even Squid Game mention it in the initial press release.
A Squid Game video game can even take some mechanics from Fall Guys where the longer you last the more currency or aesthetics you can unlock for your character so you can customize them. It will be interesting to see how Netflix continues to expand upon the success of Squid Game, and a video game would be a great opportunity to reach a new audience.
