Squid Game battle royale would reinvent a stagnant genre

Steeped in mystery and shattering expectations, Korean survival drama Squid Game has become one of 2021’s most talked about Netflix shows.

Whether it’s your mates down the pub, your pals at work or, in my case, your mother being completely confused about what on earth a “Squid Game” is, you have to have been living under a rock to have escaped the mass buzz surrounding the series.

With real-life events based on the title’s deadly games set to kick off all around the world (violence excluded, of course) there are even rumors of a virtual version to satisfy the gamers of the future. I think a Squid Game videogame is just what the battle royale genre needs, and here’s why.

Apex, however, isn’t without its issues. As an influx of Warzone hackers, banned from the Activision title flock to Respawn’s title, and OG players are boycotting the game until server issues are fixed, the BR’s fate teeters on a knife’s edge.

There’s a perfect umbrella-shaped gap just waiting for a Squid Game battle royale to slot itself into, and considering the variety of games in the show’s story, it could easily be a much more multi-faceted experience than the standard FPS battle royale.

After all, there are only so many times you can come second place in Apex (or first runner up, as I prefer) without literally losing your mind.

Imagine a BR build of six different rounds. The first could be a stealth game, where you have to avoid the lifeless eyes of that terrifying Red Light Green Light doll. The second, a puzzle game akin to the ones you find in Portal or Resident Evil. The third is a timed search for loot, MMORPG style – the list goes on.

A Squid Game BR could easily pivot away from the shooter genre but still maintain the feel of a fight to the death. Of course, you could always have an FPS level, where players group up in squads and eliminate each other: but there’s one thing I want to hammer home here.

In a Squid Game BR, the possibilities are literally endless – and that’s something gamers of every genre can get excited about.

We know what you’re thinking, though – that sounds an awful lot like a pretty messed up Fall Guys. And in many ways, you’d be right. Mediatonic’s game show format of randomized rounds is great, offering battle royale tension wrapped up in a cuddly platformer. Still, the potential of a Squid Game title’s sheer mechanical diversity means that anything goes – it’s not limited to one set of platforming controls and a loose physics system.

Squid Game offers the perfect competitive opportunity for those who want more than just bragging rights. While 45.6 billion won ($38,267,875) might be a little too steep of a prize pool (but it would be the perfect icing on the cake,) an esports scene with immense prizes up for grabs isn’t an impossibility. After all, as I said, anything is possible.

Picture an annual tournament – just one, mirroring the show itself – where players can apply to play and are picked at random. Each game progresses until one champion reigns supreme. Offering gamers who don’t play the generic esports games a shot at showing off their prowess, I bet you’d see Valorant players going up against Red Mages from FFXIV Online’s Eorzea.

Not only would it provide a competitive platform to non-esports titles, but it would also really let anyone have their shot at glory, just like the show does.

After all, everyone is equal in the Squid Game.

Am I just riding the hype train? Or should I be a game developer? I’ll let you cast your vote on that one. But either way; I think a Squid Game BR could change the face of the genre, and I’m willing to bet 45.6 billion won on it – or a few slaps because, like Gi-hun, I don’t have that money.
