Among Us-Overall Idea

The game is set in a space-themed setting where the players get one role each, either of a crewmate or an imposter. The goal of the crewmates is to identify the imposter, eliminate them and complete their task before the imposter kill crewmates without being identified ( It’s too much fun to be an imposter 🙂 )

There are meetings that can be held between crewmates, where they discuss the suspicious things that happen with them to identify the imposter. Man, this is so much fun when you are the imposter, blaming an innocent one during the meeting. You know its better to play with your friends than finding random people as we can have more fun while playing.

Among Us-Popularity

This came to gain its popularity in mid-2020 due to the impact of South Korean and Brazilian content creators.
