Netflix might actually be interested in making an actual video game based on “Squid Game”, their recent show that blew up on the internet and is currently gaining millions of views daily. In an in-depth interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix Asia Pacific’s VP, Minyoung Kim, talked a lot about the show and offered some insight into what they plan to do with it.
Fans might just want a Squid Game video game
For those who haven’t heard of it yet, Squid Game is a show in which a bunch of contestants takes part in different games usually played by children for fun, except losing or winning in the Squid Games is the difference between life and death. A game based on this story would certainly inspire some really fun and engaging experiences.
Previous Netflix web series that turned into video games
The cool thing is that the show has already spawned a bunch of fan-made games on platforms like Roblox and Krunker along with dedicated games, so Netflix could surely make the experience better and more polished with the budget they have if they do decide to make a game down the road. This would also tie into Netflix’s current involvement in video games with the launch of their game service for those with memberships on mobile devices. They also already have two Stranger Things games already available on the service, which is still in its infancy.
