The glass bridge itself is a game in the Squid Game, where players have to cross the glass bridge while guessing which glass is thick and able to support their weight. If he took a wrong step and stepped on the thin glass, his body would fall from a height and die instantly.

“That’s because it wasn’t a game that actually happened, I had to create all of them, and I had to create each element of the game in terms of who goes when,” said Hwang Dong-hyuk.

“The order of people crossing the bridge, why Gi-hun ended up being number 16, and how each character, from number one to 13, how they all died,” he continued.
