Among Us is a multiplayer game in the social deduction genre where players have to find Impostors before they killed the Crewmates. The game is inspired by Mafia’s board game mechanics. Except for the action that takes place in open space. The game is available on Android, iOS, Nintendo, Windows, macOS, Xbox One/Series.

Is there Any Story?

American developer InnerSloth does not hide the fact that the Among Us was inspired by the Mafia. Mafia is a popular party game that requires your deductive skills and the ability to find out who is hidden behind all the friendly smiles around you. Among Us is quite similar except for space atmosphere and cool space costumes. Depending on whether you are Crewmate or Impostor you have to act fast, kill the enemies, or just do not get killed while killing others. Impostors can cause significant damage to the whole team, by cutting the oxygen supply or blowing out the reactor.

Spaceship and Outer Space

It is hard to ignore this giant elephant in the room, which is a bright, colorful, and creative graphic of Among Us. It reminds us of a good old classic cartoon design from childhood. It has a unique style for sure, easy to recognize from afar. It looks like there are no bad days for you even if you are a ghost already. The spaceship is a little bit schematic and primitive, but you don’t have much time to pay attention to it suspecting everyone around.

Suspects and Killers: Guidance on Staying Alive

You can play together with up to 10 players during one round. Prepare to become either Impostor or Crewmate. The game chooses your character randomly. There are 3 maps in the game, and they are randomly picked for the round:

  • The Skeld, which is a spaceship;
  • MIRA HQ, the headquarter;
  • Polus, the planet.

There is also a 4th map “The Airship”, which will be released in the future. Each of you receives different tasks or minigames that you have to complete. Impostors also have a fake list of tasks, so they can follow the Crewmates. While Crewmates have to complete their quests, Impostors must sabotage the oxygen supply or kill Crewmates one by one. Players who die turn into friendly ghosts. As a Crewmate, you have to find Impostors.
