The scariest part of the trailer is how similar the games are to the original series; the only difference is the reality version of 'Squid Game' isn't a matter of life or death.

Watch the trailer here:

456 players will compete to win $4.56-million (around R86-million), Netflix's largest cash prize in reality television history.

Through a series of games, each player will be pushed to their limits and forced to ask themselves just how far they'll go to win, with opportunistic alliances, cutthroat strategies, and timely betrayals to follow.
