While not entirely played by kids, gamers all around the world are predominantly kids. Much of this is due to the fact that people come across games usually when they are kids, which then blossoms into a deeper interest. In this article, we will talk about the famous game Among us and if the game is appropriate for kids. Is Among Us Kids Friendly? Let’s find out:
The lockdown restrictions levied upon the world have led to a rise of recreational activities, practiced at home. A major part of this is gaming. Among Us saw an exponential rise last year, becoming one of the largest multiplayer games being played right now. From streamers to casual gamers, people have fallen in love with Among US.
A bulk of the reason for the game’s popularity is its simplicity, coupled with the large number of players you can play with. Among Us supports up to 10 players at once. Players spawn on a map where they come together to complete tasks. However, among the lobby are imposters. Players that can kill other players, or sabotage the game itself. You can report dead bodies, kick out suspicious players and of course, try to kill off the bulk of the lobby if you are an imposter.

The only shocking elements of the game are probably the kill animations, which pop up every time your player is called by an imposter.
Dead bodies also lie around the game, until discovered. However, as mentioned above, the cartoonish depictions water down what gore the scenario actually contains.
