Season one of Squid Game ended on a knife edge, but luckily for fans waiting in anticipation for the second season they can get more red light, green light action with the arrival of an immersive gaming experience dedicated to the show. This September, Immersive Gamebox will be giving fans the chance to play everyone’s favourite South Korean survival drama, Squid Game, in real life with the launch of a brand-new gaming experience in collaboration with Netflix.
Not for the faint of heart, the hyper-immersive digital experience will see players come together in a race against time to complete the six nail-biting mini games seen in the hit series and be transported into the life-size digital Squid Game within the Gameboxes. Available to play from September 21, the game will use Immersive Gamebox’s unique technology, projection mapping, 3D motion tracking and surround sound to fully immerse players into the world of Squid Game and seriously up the intensity.
Those looking for a serious adrenaline rush will not be disappointed as they face the haunting giant doll in ‘red light, green light’, attempt to expertly cut out shapes in the ‘dalgona honeycomb challenge’ and partake in an intense adaptation of ‘tug of war’. Players will also take on a digital game of marbles, in a slightly less heart-breaking format than the series, participate in a game of chance that draws inspiration from the ‘glass stepping stones’ and conclude with a tense battle of the actual ‘Squid Game’ game. Lives may not be on the line but everything else will be!
Will Dean, CEO and Co-Founder of Immersive Gamebox, commented: “Whilst the outcome of the game isn’t quite as life or death as the Netflix series, the experience will be full of suspense and have dark undertones which is something we’ve never done before. Playing the games for real in our immersive spaces will get players’ hearts racing and the use of motion tracking and touch screens in the Gameboxes recreates the games in a way that transports you into the Squid Game world.”
Suitable for ages 16 and up, Squid Game at Immersive Gamebox is the brand’s first game for mature audiences and will be available to play across all Immersive Gamebox UK locations from September 21 with each Gamebox holding up to six people. Book your Immersive Gamebox experience here.
