In a move that shouldn’t surprise anyone, Netflix is looking to bolster its Netflix Games library by turning the popular Hwang Dong-hyuk series Squid Game into an actual video game.

Netflix Games Vice President Mike Verdu made the announcement in a Netflix blog post revealing the game will take place in the universe of the series and will allow players to “compete with other players in games from the hit series.”

The video game announcement comes on the heels of the first successful season of Squid Game: the Challenge, a game show that shows one out of the 456 contestants walk away with a whopping  $4.56 million in prize money.

Verdu also announced in his post a slew of other games coming to the Netflix Games platform, and they include:
