Among Us review
Among Us is a social deduction game created by Innersloth and released in June 2018 for iOS and Android devices. The game is based on the party game Mafia and the science fiction horror film The Thing. Among Us is a game that was developed by Night School Studio. It was released on September 18, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and the price for the game is $29.99 USD.
In Among Us, players take on two roles, Crewmates and Impostors, with a predetermined number of Impostors. The goal of Crewmates is to identify the Impostors, eliminate them, and complete tasks around the map; the goal of Impostors is to covertly sabotage and kill the Crewmates before they complete all of their tasks. Members of the crew can be eliminated via a plurality vote, which any player may initiate by calling an emergency meeting (except during a crisis) or reporting a dead body. Crewmates win if all Impostors are ejected or all tasks are completed, whereas Impostors win if there is an equal number of Impostors and Crewmates, or if a critical sabotage goes unresolved.
The game takes place in a space-themed setting, in which players each take on one of two roles, most being Crewmates, and a predetermined number being Impostors. The game features cartoonish graphics, and the design of the Airship is based on Infiltrating the Airship, an Innersloth game.
The game features several maps, including The Skeld, MIRA HQ, Polus and The Airship. The Skeld, the original map, features different challenges each game. The Airship's design is based on Infiltrating the Airship, another Innersloth game.
