What is Among Us?
In the end, Among Us is a pretty simple concept, but then, the best online games usually are. In a virtual mafia game, players have to guess who the murderer(s) is/are among them (pun intended).
In 2020, Among Us gained prominence, even though the game has been around since 2018. According to Steam Charts, the game's average player count reached 2.3 during its initial release.
In September 2020, Innersloth announced Among Us had 3.8 million concurrent users on PC and mobile.
The game has reached more than 100 million downloads and 60 million daily active players.
How to play Among Us
The game begins with a team of four to ten players completing menial tasks aboard an old spaceship. As time passes, the chosen impostor murders those on board, slowly sabotaging the team. Another member may find the body and report it, and this will trigger a meeting between everyone on board, which is where the fun really begins.
In the meetings, questions are asked about who was nearby and who saw what happened, which puts the onus on the murderer to play it cool and remain invisible. It is true; here, you will find out which of your friends are good at lying and who you should never trust.
After the meeting is over, teams can vote off a player or skip voting for that round, and everyone returns to the ship to finish their tasks. If players suspect they know who the imposter is, they can convene an “emergency meeting.” You can also read how to update Among Us on all devices in our dedicated guide.
