From Squid Game to Cyberpunk 2077 to Home Alone – I’m hooked on the weird Fortnite RPG servers

An alarm sounds and I wake up in a storage room no bigger than an airplane bathroom. I stand up, turn my body to a narrow dresser and pick up a black wire mask adorned with the white outline of a circle. Given its vast catalog of crossovers, an official combination of Fortnite and Squid Game isn’t beyond the realm of possibility. But in this case, I’m playing on a player-created Squid Game Fortnite RPG server, where I’m playing the role of a guard in training.

Ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, the standard of the servers varies quite a bit, but there really is something for everyone, for anyone willing to search for it. On my current Squid Game adventure, I just finished roll call and received a shopping list of homework. My first order of the day? To oversee the infamous Green Light/Red Light game, and make sure no one cheats while running the gauntlet. my second? To gather the half-dozen corpses inside the Tug-O-War arena pit, pack them into coffins, take them to the morgue, and cremate them on site. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. I suppose.

If you build it, they will come
