Originally published by American game developer InnerSloth, Among Us is an online multiplayer game in which players spend their time as Crewmates aboard a spaceship or as an Imposter. Through multiple tasks, stages, and trials the Imposter must be sought out and eliminated. The game pits these two sides against one another and has them identify and remove the Impostors through a plurality voting system.
Cut to two years later, 2020, and the game has become a MASSIVE hit, overthrowing AAA titles like The Last of Us 2 in terms of viewership and player count. I’m sure you have seen the bazillion memes from the game. Well, now the game exists on your phone, so if you want to kill a few minutes or hours, you can do it anywhere and with anyone!
