The year 2020 was exactly how a rollercoaster is. The forest fires, earthquake and then the virus indeed led the world into chaos. The silver lining to this was the exponential growth in the gaming industry. One of the games that popped up in front of the world was Among Us.
Synopsis & Gameplay
Among Us is the literal visualization of treachery and betrayal faced in our lives. Developed by InnerSloth LLC, the game is set in a spacecraft adrift the infinite space. The players are divided into Crewmates and Imposters. This game is inspired by the childhood game Werewolf.
The crewmates have to perform tasks in order to fill the progress meter. In the meantime, the Imposters have to kill the Crewmates in cold blood. Once a dead body is reported, players gather around for the meeting. They have to screen out the imposters. During the meeting, Crewmates go by their intuition and decide to vote out a player. The Imposters should desperately try to shift the blame onto an innocent.
The game ends in favor of the Crewmates for the following three scenarios:
If they successfully vote out all of the Imposters.
The Task bar is completely filled
The Imposters can emerge victorious is the number of Crewmates is equal to the number of Imposters. This can be achieved either by killing them without getting caught or to shrewdly blame an innocent and survive the vote outs.
When did it gain popularity
To be honest, the game had not at all planned for this huge success. During the early phase of the worldwide lockdown, players were engaged in FPS action games like PUBG and Call of Duty. The popularity of the game rose in India after the ban of PUBG by the government. Another reason for the rise in popularity is the craving of people for an activity to pass time. This is when many non-gamers also entered the Among Us servers. This is why, during the end of 2020, the servers were taken down to maintain the huge load.
It is quite surprising to see that Innersloth LLC had never expected the surge of players in this game. Indeed, this game has brought many players together and created lots of memories. In the trend of games providing an adrenaline-rush, Among Us was a place to chill. You can check out all the latest news about the game from the Official Twitter Handle.
