MrBeast’s long-awaited Squid Game has finally been unleashed, pitting 456 contestants against each other for a massive $456,000 cash prize.

In November 2021, MrBeast promised fans a full-scale recreation of the Netflix cultural phenomenon, Squid Game. As someone who constantly delivers on their word in superfluous fashion, this promised to be a truly awe-inspiring re-do that would make Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk proud.

Here’s more on how to watch the remake, and the reception the massive project has received thus far.

The YouTuber’s version of events featured all of the classic games from the series, albeit with one major substitution for the final challenge in the form of musical chairs.

Number 079 ended up taking the $456,000 cash prize – although player 456 managed to stay alive right up until the final game.

Ahead of its release, MrBeast shared some progress updates on the building of the massive set. He joked on Twitter that it was “costing more then I thought it would, but I’m in too deep to stop now.”

However, from some reports, this really may be costing the Youtuber a serious amount of cash. According to MrBeast, the project’s budget cost a whopping $2 million, and participants were set to receive around $1.5 million in prizes.

In the original show that took over Netflix upon its debut, 456 players competed in various childhood game challenges for a massive grand prize of cash.
