‘AMONG US’; ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!

‘Among Us’ has taken down the internet by 2020 and shows no sign of stopping. Among Us is an online multiplayer game with 4 to 10 players. ‘InnerSloth’ is an American game studio who developed and published Among Us and released on June 15, 2018. This game was inspired by the real-life party board game Mafia. The game is played in a space-themed setting where players are automatically selected as one of two roles, most being Crewmates, and being Impostors.

The job of the Crewmates is to identify the Impostors and eliminate them. Furthermore complete tasks around the map. The Impostors target is to sabotage and kill all the Crewmates before they complete all their tasks. And there is an emergency meeting and also dead body reporting, through this meeting, there occurs a fixed time period for a plurality vote, and the players believed to be Impostors may be removed from the game. If all Impostors are eliminated the Crewmates win and also if the crewmates completed all the task also lead to victory. If critical sabotage goes unresolved in time, the Impostors win.

While Among Us was released in 2018 it doesn’t take peoples attention and later in 2020, it received an influx of popularity due to many popularized twitch streamers and YouTubers playing it. And because of the big popularity of the game, Among Us, 2 was announced in August 2020. But yet later in September the planned sequel was cancelled. And instead of releasing Among Us 2, the team decided to focus on improving the original game

GAMEPLAY, MAIN POINTS TO BE REMEMBERED

???? While starting the game there are public and private rooms you can join. There is three option for the users to select their space shuttles, as well as the number of impostors you want to play with (1, 2, 3).

???? In the first interface, there are two options of finding rooms, they’re connecting on a local WiFi and finding it online with unknown players.

???? You can join a public room in the online section by simply going to the menu and scrolling through the rooms to pick the room you want to join. And also you can join the private room by entering the code shared by the host of the private room with you.

???? There are some tasks to complete around the map in the form of minigames for crewmates. It consists of maintenance work on vital systems, such as fueling engines and electrical rewiring. And the interesting part of this game is, there is a list of fake tasks are given to the impostors in order to blend in with crewmates. And impostors have the ability to sabotage the map’s systems, hide and pass through vents, identify any other impostor and can kill crewmates. If a player is dead, they will become a ghost and they can complete the tasks in order to help the other crewmates. Ghost can pass through the walls and they’re invisible to others except for other ghosts.

???? If the crewmates completed all the tasks before being killed by an impostor, the crewmates will win. If the impostor wants to win they must hunt down every crewmate without being caught and also they must sabotage the map’s systems. If the number of Impostors is equal to the number of crewmates, the impostors will win.

???? If the crewmates found a dead body they can report it. It’ll make an urgent meeting and they can start discussing who is killed and who is suspicious or impostor. There is a various tracking system to identify impostor and those systems are in each map such as security camera in the Skeld, a doorlog in Mira and a vitals indicator in Polus. After the fixed discussion time, they appear a voting time and if the plurality of vote is reached for the chosen person, they’ll be ejected from the map and they die. And also they can call an “Emergency meeting” at any time and the players can communicate in a text chat on the right side. But they can only talk in meetings and when the body is reported although ghosts can speak whenever they need to another ghost. Those ghost chats are invisible to the living players. And some players use external programs such as ‘Discord’ for speaking because the game doesn’t provide a built-in voice chat system.

???? There are various options in each game’s lobby which helps them to customise the aspects of gameplay such as adjusting the number of emergency meetings, adjusting the vision range, setting the number of short, long and common tasks, adjusting the discussion and voting time, and also adjusting the impostor kill cooldown time. From the lobby, there are also options for the players for changing the spacesuit colour, skins, hats, and pets. And some of the skins, hats and all the pets are paid downloadable content. The game doesn’t provide free skin and pets. And some of the hats are free to use. If you feel excited download and play Among Us.
