Key Features

Life on the crew: All you have to do is prepare your ship for departure, but be wary of impostors! The dead bodies should be reported and an emergency meeting called to vote out the impostors intent on killing you and your crewmates.

Create the illusion of the impostor’s role by spying on innocent bystanders, causing chaos, and framing them! In order to win, you must eliminate every crew member. By pretending to complete crewmate tasks, you can blend in and avoid getting caught.

You can add impostors, and tasks, and decrease visibility in your game according to your preferences. You can customize your theme with stylish apparel, outfits, and hats.

The game is cross-platform, which means you can play it on Android, iOS, and PC!

Game Objectives

 If you complete tasks, repair your ship or find the impostors and vote to expel them, you can win.

That is unless you are one of them!

You will have to hide, destroy the ship’s components one by one, or use violence to kill the crew members without being caught. To move quickly between rooms while remaining hidden from crewmates, use the vents.

Is Among Us safe for kids?

A fun and engaging way for kids to interact with their friends is possible through Among Us. This game can be used as an educational tool due to the social deduction and cooperative parts. Due to the infrequent cartoon violence and horror themes, Among Us is recommended for kids aged nine and up.

Will there be an Among Us 2 game?

According to what we know, no. As PuffballsUnited, co-founder of Innersloth, announced in late September 2020, Among Us 2 has been canceled. Among Us will be even better thanks to Innersloth’s efforts.  

How to play Among us?

The goal in this game is to survive and kill all of the imposters while completing all of the tasks. The imposter’s goal is to kill you or prevent you from completing the tasks. In order to avoid being thrown out of emergency meetings, an impostor must kill all crewmates or successfully sabotage the ship/base.

In the meantime, Innerlosth and Riot Games have teamed up to provide the little crewmates with Arcane-themed accessories.
