Given the near endless array of pop culture cameos in Fortnite already it’s surely only a matter of time until there’s some kind of official crossover with Netflix show Squid Game.
Until that happens though fans have taken matters into their own hands and recreated the show in Creative mode, which given Fortnite is basically a battle royale already has actually proved surprisingly easy.
Fortnite fan Glitch King managed to recreate almost everything about the show, from the weird costumes to the creepy music and, most importantly, the rules of the game.
Things works just like the show, with players assembling in the sorting area and then once it’s full ‘loopers’ are teleported outside and into the area. Players then have to get past the doll at the other end of the arena in order to reach the safe zone.
Some of the graphics, especially the doll, are pretty crude but it still gets the point across and everything from the show is in there in some form or another.
How to play Squid Game in Fortnite
Since it’s not part of Fortnite Battle Royale, just the Creative mode, players have to agree with themselves how things work and when the host says ‘Green Light’ everyone gets to make a rush for the safe zone.
Then when they say ‘Red Light’ they have to stop on the spot, and if they don’t the host gets to eliminate them.

And if you don’t like it, well… the beauty of Creative mode is that you can have a go at making a version of it yourself.
