Does anyone know what the Netflix series Squid Game is all about?

I keep reading articles about the Netflix series the Squid Game. Can someone comment and tell me if the show lives up to the hype?

According to what I’ve read – and from the looks of the trailer – Squid Game centers on a group of cash-strapped players that accept an invitation to compete in children’s games. Once inside the arena, a tempting prize awaits with deadly high stakes. Squid Game is described as a survival game that has a 45.6 billion WON prize. Sort of The Hunger Games for adults.

Squid Game stars Jung-jae Lee, Greg Chun, Stephen Fu, Tom Choi, Steven Allerick, Emily Kuroda, Hae-soo Park, Lee Byung-hun, Gong Yoo, Jully Lee, Jennifer Yun, Hoyeon Jung, Lee Shorten, Hideo Kimura, Wi Ha-Joon, Caleb Yen, Paul Nakauchi and Donald Chang.
