Autumn guy could try to revive scrapped ideas for squid games

Developed by Mediatonic and published by Devolver Digital, Fall Guys may try to revive the abandoned level concept due to the popularity of Squid Game.

During an interview with Techradar, Lead game designer Joe Walsh talked about the difficulties teams face in coming up with new concepts for the game and how many levels of ideas will be discarded compared to making cuts. .. During the segment, Walsh talked about one abandoned concept that the team could actually revive, based on the immense popularity of Netflix’s Korean survival drama squid game.

“Oh yeah, definitely a lot,” Walsh said of the number of levels not participating in the game. “One of the recent ones is the squid game. [which] It is now the largest television show in the world. And it starts with the red light green light that we have dabbled in. And I couldn’t really prototype because I didn’t fully understand how it worked. “

“In a video game, there’s something about movement. In reality, it’s very difficult to stand still. But in a video game, you just put the controller down. So, at the time, we said,” Never Red. Don’t light green light, it doesn’t make sense. But now, seeing how popular squid games are, we put another crack in something like that and do it with Fall Guys. I would like to see if I can do it. “

Fall guys and squid games can have different tones, but the two share similarities. From building ideas based on your childhood favorites to levels designed with bright, vibrant color schemes and exclusionary aspects, some of the mini-games featured in Squid Game will move to Fall Guys. It’s easy to see how and why Mediatonic explores the concept again. ..

Some of the Squid Game games may be feasible in the Fall Guys round. In fact, without ruining the show, one of them feels very similar to the existing Fall Guys activity. I hope that red light and green light will be added to the lineup.

The first season of the squid game received overwhelming praise from spectators and critics. In a review of Squid Game by IGN, it won a 9/10 award and was described as “one of the most unique things to see this year.” Despite being reported to have lost six teeth due to stress during the show, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk says he already has potential ideas for the second season.

Over the past few months, many Fall Guys costumes have appeared in the game with reference to various franchise tie-ups. Games like Super Monkey Ball, NieR: Automata, Ratchet & Crank have all seen crossover content on Platform Battle Royale, but I think Fall Guys’ relationship with squid games is likely to end with level design. ??
