Among Us was one of this year’s indie hits, especially this summer, despite actually being released in 2018. The game found a huge success after being discovered by Twitch streamers., which thanks to its extremely simple, nice and paranoid-infused gameplay, managed to conquer the public.
All this also thanks to its incredibly low cost. Among Us is an experience designed specifically for 4 to 10 players, while one or more players will play the role of “impostor”, an alien intruder whose purpose is to kill the other crew members, the latter will have to try to complete some fun activities to make it home.
When the murdered bodies are discovered, players will have the opportunity to report them to others and convene a group meeting, through which it will be possible to discuss, accuse and potentially hunt someone too suspicious, including misunderstandings, guesses and deceptions.
