Roblox Players Are Making Squid Game Clones
Roblox allows users to create and share games online. Squid Game is a South Korean thriller that’s currently on Netflix. The two have teamed up with a slew of fan-made games.
Roblox has seen many fan-made games, including several that made it onto the first page in the “Popular” section. This feat is especially remarkable considering recent revelations by People Make Games that revealed how difficult it is to be featured on the platform. Squid Game seems to be able to find the right chords to excel across multiple media.
Squid Game, a nine-part thriller, arrived on Netflix earlier in the month. The show is set on an island in South Korea and follows a group gathered by characters. They will be competing in dangerous versions of children’s games such as Red Light Green Light and Tug of War. If they survive, the most impoverished contestants may win a small fortune. However, most will end up paying the ultimate cost. This show has been compared to Battle Royale, a 2000 film. It touches on the themes of poverty, as well as the flaws in capitalism that have become common themes in South Korean dramas.
Roblox’s adaptations are primarily focused on the individual Roblox games. Roblox’s amateur game developers seem to love the first episode’s Red Light Green Light version. Although this is not uncommon, Roblox’s games are also varied in quality. Not all fan-made Roblox games use the Squid Game title. Fish Game and Hexa Game are popular alternatives. They all take inspiration from the Netflix series.
Fans of the show might find these indie adaptations worth looking at. There are many to choose from. A quick search of the site reveals many examples that haven’t made it onto the first page. Roblox’s popularity and number of adaptations show gamers and game developers have an genuine interest in Squid Game. Netflix seems to be paying attention, so fans may soon see an official videogame adaptation.
Squid Game is still one of Netflix’s most-watched shows. Fans are disappointed to learn that there is no plan for a second season or a sequel. Fans of Squid Game will have at the very least the Roblox versions to keep them busy.
