Crab Game is becoming increasingly popular on the PC

Last weekend on Steam was pretty standard. A lot of players have played the current games New World and Age of Empires 4, along with the already well-known "natives" such as CS: GO, Dota 2, and PUBGBG. But among the 50 most played games was one you’ve probably never heard of. Crab Game was played by more than 33,000 players at one point, and 214,000 viewers watched the game on Twitch.


Why haven’t you heard of this, apparently very popular game before? The first reason is that she came out only three days ago. The second reason is that the game was made in a hurry - in just a few weeks.


Behind Crab Game are a developer and YouTuber Dani Deverson, who this year stood out with the survival game Muck - developed based on the provocation of a comment on YouTube. Crab Game did not arise from provocation, but it is in itself a kind of provocation, or more precisely - an imitation of the popular Netflix series Squid Game.


The developer has deliberately created a "trailer" in which he shows himself eating and vaguely describes his game. He thought that such a thing would not be approved on Steam, but once again it turned out that everything goes on that platform.

Crag Game is a multiplayer game that is played with a first-person view. Up to 35 players can participate in the match, and the goal is to stay the last player on his feet. Crab Game has a total of 28 maps/challenges, and some of them were created by games that are part of Squid Game.

The reason for the popularity is not difficult to explain. Ever since Squid Game became one of the most-watched series on Netflix this fall, a video game offering something similar has been in demand. Netflix itself wasn’t ready for that much interest so the official game isn’t in sight yet. However, players create their Squid Game alternatives in Minecraft, Roblox, and other games.

Another reason for the popularity of Crab Game can be found in the fact that the game is free to play. And we mean free - no microtransactions or commercials.
