In case you'd forgotten, a real-life Squid Game is coming to Netflix.

The death game from the wildly popular and truly nightmarish Korean drama series will be adapted for a competition show, Squid Game: The Challenge. The series will see 456 real players vying for a prize of $4.56 million by completing games inspired by the one's you've seen in Squid Game — albeit without the actual death. But that hasn't stopped reports of the filming of the show being extremely tough for contestants.

After a first look in June, Netflix has released a teaser for the series, which shows some of what the contestants are up for: from the show we spy Red Light, Green Light, Hopscotch, and the overt reference to Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party. But we also see life-size Battleships.

In the meantime, you can always watch MrBeast's version.

How to watch: Squid Game: The Challenge is streaming on Netflix from Nov. 22.
