It's time to start talking Squid Game season 2
Squid Game is the biggest show in the world right now. So, it comes to no surprise that conversations are being had about that. Just don't expect it anytime soon. It hinges on creator Hwang Dong-hyuk’s schedule. Here's Netflix's global TV head Bela Bajaria:

It's time to start talking about playing Squid Game in VR
This didn't take long at all. You can now live the Squid Game life in virtual reality. A Red Light Green Light Squid Game has been developed for Oculus players.
In Red Light, Green Light, players race to a finish line, grinding to a halt when given the ‘Red Light’ (during which a giant and terrifying mannequin looks at you), and sprinting during the ‘Green Light’. Get caught out on a Red Light in VR and you’ll be shot. Then it’s back to the start. That’s a bit nicer than in the series, where things get a bit more grizzly.
Of course - with Facebook down right now, your Oculus Quest isn't able to do all that much...
