Fall Guys have been inspired to revisit unused minigames thanks to the Squid game – Gaming News – BollyInside

During a recent TechRadar interview, Fall Guys head game designer Joe Walsh said that the Mediatonic development team is considering resurrecting an unused minigame from the scrap heap. And its all because to Squid Game, Netflixs newest original series.

While Fall Guys world and themes arent half as sinister as Squid Games, its premise allows for a lot of overlap. Take Red Light, Green Light for example, the well-known childrens game which takes up much of the shows first episode. While developing Fall Guys, Mediatonic also considered its own version of Red Light, Green Light that ultimately never saw the light of day. With Squid Game now dominating the cultural zeitgeist, Walsh feels the time is right for revisiting the unused concept.

Squid Game, written and directed by South Korean filmmaker Hwang Dong-hyuk, concerns a deadly, 456-player competition that promises to pay a single winner enough money to escape their crushing debts. Intended to be an allegory on modern-day inequality, Squid Games similarities with properties like Battle Royale and The Hunger Games (not to mention the entire video game genre those properties ultimately inspired) has made it a hit among viewers.

Within a video game, theres something about movement, Walsh told TechRadar. n real life its very hard to stay still, but in a video game, you just put your controller down. And so, at the time, I think we were like, Well never do Red Light, Green Light, it doesnt make sense. But now, seeing how popular Squid Game is, Id love for us to have another crack at something like that and see if we could do it in Fall Guys.

Fall Guys has enjoyed several seasons of new content since launching in August 2020, some of which was even branded with crossover appearances from franchises like Among Us, Nier: Automata, and Godzilla. A collaboration with Squid Game, whether officially or just via homage, wouldnt be the wildest thing to happen to the bouncy battle royale. In any case, its cool to see Mediatonic recognize the non-gaming media to which the genre owes so much.
