UPDATED: Playing Squid Game in Second Life (And How to Pick Up FREE Squid Game Outfits!)

It was perhaps inevitable that the hit Korean TV series Squid Game would inspire somebody to recreate the deadly games in Second Life as a form of roleplay. Teleport into the Squid Game world, and click on the large black cube at the entrance to receive a set of instructions on a notecard, and a special HUD to wear. The notecard by the creator reads in part:

Welcome to the SL Squid Games!

We started work on this on the 6th October 2021 and already we have had so much interest! Thanks to everyone for coming and checking us out and for all the very kind donations we’ve received so far already!

This all came about when I watched the whole Squid Game series and it just looked like so much fun to play! It was the talk of the town! Seemed as though no one had done an SL version yet, and I love building and scripting, so I got started. Within a day or 2 we already had many visitors showing up…All of the games except the tug of war (marketplace bought) were coded by myself.

Here’s a look at two of the game worlds. As you can see, they look very similar to the television series!

Near the entrance there are, of course, vendors from various stores selling Squid Game-themed outfits for roleplay purposes (never miss an opportunity to earn some coin, people!):


Even better, whether or not you choose to run the gauntlet of deadly childhood games, you can pick up some FREE Squid Game player and guard outfits at the current round of the MIIX monthly shopping event! The MIIX event always features a themed hunt of some kind, and this time around, the theme is Squid Game. So what are you waiting for? Here’s your taxi! (Plus some tips and tricks to help you with your hunt, learned through trial, tribulation, and experience.)

Below is the hunt key; you are looking for Squid Game cards with the circle, square, and triangle symbols printed on them, which can be hidden anywhere in and around the vendor booths or elsewhere in the space. As you can see, there are hunt prizes for both men and women, plus dolls and other accessories (the green player tracksuits come in both clean and dirty versions):

This is what the clean version of the green player’s tracksuit looks like (prizes 2 and 10):

And here is what the red guard outfit looks like (prizes 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7; the rifle comes with the Bento pose shown, and the mask comes in three versions: circle, square and triangle).

Note that the MIIX hunt ends November 20th, 2021, so don’t delay!

Note also that there are also regularly scheduled tournaments in the Second Life version of Squid Game (please teleport to the sim to get more information, and to join the group). Have fun!

P.S. If you haven’t watched Squid Game on Netflix yet, apparently it quickly became Netflix’s most watched show after it premiered in September! Here’s the trailer:

I must confess that I started, but haven’t yet finished, the series; it’s a bit too gory for my personal tastes. But it’s very well done, and if you’re into that sort of thing, it might be just up your alley!

UPDATE Nov. 16th, 2021: I wanted to add a few pictures showing you the men’s hunt prizes from the MIIX event. This is what the clean version of the green player’s tracksuit looks like (prizes 1 and 11):

Prizes 13, 14, and 15 are components of In-Ho (The Front Man) character’s black outfit: black pants, a plain black T-shirt, and a black hoodie worn over top (all of which you are men’s wardrobe staples which you can easily repurpose to use outside of Squid Game roleplay!), plus The Front Man’s black mask. Please click on each image in the gallery below to view it in a larger size. (Note that there were no black shoes included as prizes in the MIIX hunt, but you probably already have black shoes in your inventory!)

Remember that this hunt ends November 20th, so you only have four days to pick up these items for your male avatar. Happy freebie hunting!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Free and L$1 Fall and Winter Womenswear from Monomania and the Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt!

We’re expecting our first snowfall up here in Winnipeg today, so I decided to call upon Vanity Fair to model some seasonal freebies and dollarbies for you!

First up is a L$1 autumn/winter outfit fatpack from Monomania. Just teleport to the in-world store (exact SLURL) and pay the vendor panel shown below a single Linden dollar, and it’s yours!

There are four separate pieces—puffer jacket, top, pants, and shoes—with a HUD to change any of them to one of six different colours (black, white, grey, red, blue, or purple):

This puffer jacket outfit comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara; Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus; Slink Hourglass and Physique; Meshbody Legacy; and Tonic Curvy and Fine mesh bodies. It’s a seasonal staple that should be in everybody’s wardrobe, and you can mix and match the individual pieces in this outfit with other items in your inventory, all for only one Linden dollar!

Now I am going to share with you some FREE hunt prizes from the Fabulously Free in SL group’s Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt, on now until November 30th, 2021. You are looking for a brightly-coloured rainbow hidden somewhere around the participating stores.

From MoOH! comes this wonderful oversize scarf and earmuffs set, which comes with two HUDs to change the colour and texture of both in many different ways, to match whatever else you’re wearing! The scarf comes in five standard sizes. (Hunt hint: A mouse can fit in this chair.)

Below, Vanity Fair models two hunt gifts worn together: the Everlie autumn dress (the hunt prize from Roped Passions), paired with the brown leather Darcy boots (one of three free hunt prizes from Mosquito’s Way). The knit dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara; Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus; Slink Hourglass and Physique; and Tonic Curvy and Fine mesh bodies, plus 3 standard sizes (S, M, and L). The boots fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh feet. Check out the wonderful buckle and strap detail on those boots, emblematic of the high quality of all of Mosquito’s Way women’s footwear!

You’re all set for autumn in this outfit! There’s also a second hunt prize, a matching sweater for male avatars, at the Roped Passions store; the hunt hint for both is: Throw a coin, and make a wish. (The hunt hint for the Darcy boots is: Coffee for me!)

So, as you can see, you can pull together a fabulous, fashionable fall or winter look from head to toe, without breaking the bank! Happy freebie shopping and hunting!

Halloween Events in Second Life

Happy Halloween! Photo by Call Me Fred on Unsplash

In a virtual world where you can be anybody (or anything) you want, Halloween is a bigger holiday than Christmas in Second Life! Today I will be giving a quick rundown of many of the events taking place across the grid.

First, if you haven’t done so yet, be sure to visit the Halloween Shop and Hop event before Nov. 1st, 2021 to pick up some fabulous free gifts, including free store credit for a variety of stores! Here’s my blogpost showing just a few of the gifts available.

There’s also numerous Halloween-and-fall-themed hunts! You can get further information on seasonal hunts posted on the HuntSL and SL Hunts websites (two places with all the latest up-to-date information on hunts in Second Life).

SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour and Hunt is something I try to go and do every year! Starting at Shady Manor, click on the large sign to receive a folder containing five notecards with SLURLs to no less than 83 different scary and spooky places to explore! Many have at least one free gift for you to find, several spots have several, and some of them are quite nice!

For example, among the free gifts from the Crazy Cajun Hallowe’en Hangout is a mini-cauldron Mystery Brew drink, complete with a Bento drinking animation!

Second Life has posted a blogpost listing a number of official Halloween events you might be interested in. Among them are:

Many SL clubs will also be holding events on October 31st! Do a keyword search for “halloween” under the Events tab in Search in your Second Life viewer to find out what’s going on, where and when.
