Since the brutal challenge in Squid Game isn’t bad enough, how about recreating it in Fortnite’s Unreal Engine too?

If for some reason you haven’t got into Netflix’s most popular TV show Squid Game, you might be a bit confused at what ‘Red Light, Green Light’ actually is. Basically, the game is a twisted take on a children’s game like statues where people have to try and make it to the finish line when ‘Green Light’ is said but when Red light is announced if they don’t freeze, they get shot.

It’s a pretty brutal challenge that’s hard to watch but as horrific as it is, the cruel game has become a point of curiosity for some. A fan of the show has decided to recreate the ‘Red Light, Green Light’ in Fortnite’s Unreal Engine that’s, for use of a better word, really impressive.

Reddit user saas_dev showcases their creation in a short clip but it’s long enough to see how much attention to detail they have actually put into it. As you can see, saas has even added in the creepy doll from the challenge and that even creepier song. By crafting the same environments used and dressing all the players in the same outfit, it’s a pretty amazing design.

Just like in the show and using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, you can see the players move their way towards the finish line but some move after the doll turns around leaving them in a pool of blood. The comment section seems to be thrilled with saas’ remake with over 1k upvotes and one person even saying that if they added a multiplayer, it would be even better.

To check out this savage challenge for yourself, Squid Game is now streaming on Netflix.
