Real-World Multiplayer Game “Squid Game” Will Debut In The US And The UK
Interactive games company Immersive Gamebox and Netflix have developed a real-life Squid Game multiplayer game that will launch in the US and UK this September.
On August 1, Variety reported that the two companies had collaborated on a game inspired by the hit South Korean drama. The upcoming in-person game will allow two to six players to compete in a series of challenges featured in Squid Game, including ‘Red Light, Green Light’, ‘Glass Bridge’, and the titular ‘Squid Game’.
The Immersive Gamebox will use motion-sensing and touchscreen technology in digital smart rooms to recreate the experience of being in the games. The consequences of losing this version of Squid Game are much less deadly than in the original series, as players will only lose a virtual life with every challenge they fail. Successful players will also win virtual money with every challenge they complete.
“To reimagine Netflix’s most popular show in an entirely new format offers customers more ways to stay connected to Squid Game,” said Immersive Gamebox CEO Will Dean in a statement.
Immersive Gamebox’s Squid Game experience is set to launch in nine US and four UK locations on September 21. The 60-minute game will be restricted to players aged 16 and older, with ticket prices starting from £19 depending on dates and locations. More details and booking information can be found here.
