Squid Game, the huge Netflix hit, was always going to inspire others and it clearly did with the free multiplayer title Crab Game and the developer has now put up a Linux build on Steam.
It looks completely ridiculous of course but it's surprisingly fun to play and watch. Crab Game has been quite a big hit on Twitch too, with tens of thousands watching people spectacularly fail at it.
The developer doesn't explicitly mention Squid Game of course but it does hilariously say this about it: "Crab Game is a First-Person Multiplayer game where you fight for the ultimate cash price in different minigames based on children's games, until only one player is left to claim it all. Definitely not based on any online streaming pop culture korean tv shows, as that would get me in legal trouble, so we're certainly not doing that."
You can see the truly terrible trailer below:
Not everything from Squid Game is in, as some wouldn't work too well so the developer has put in a number of different modes you can play. Steam players seem to love it with today seeing a peak player count of over 40,000 online.
Testing out the Linux version, it seems to run without issues.
Available free on Steam.
