The game ‘Among Us’ has recently been gathering much attention from people all around the world. It is an online multiplayer game that was actually released two years ago and is a video game adaptation of Mafia.
The game takes place in a space themed setting where players are allocated one of two roles: a crew-mate or impostor.
The crew-mates’ jobs are to complete their tasks and to figure out who the impostors are. The impostors must sabotage the completion of tasks, and kill crew-mates without being caught. However, the impostor also has the advantage of being able to travel through vents and holes within the game map that allows them to evacuate quickly from crime scenes.
Whenever a body is found, or when a player becomes suspicious of another, a meeting occurs. The players need to provide their alibi and who they believe are the impostors. These discussions always lead to someone being accused, and this is where you need to have some very good debating skills.
After the discussion, players can then vote for a player to be ejected from the ship or can also skip voting. Players who have died still need to complete their tasks and the impostors are still able to sabotage the tasks in order for one of the two sides to win.
Among Us is definitely a thrilling game with additional features that make the adaptation much more interesting. It is immensely fun to play, whether it is with friends or just with random people on the internet.
Although you will be suspicious of everyone around you, it is a great way to meet new people and make new friends!
Among Us is rated 4.2 out of 5 stars in the Apple App Store and recommended for 9yrs+.
