Among Us is a party game with game mechanics similar to that of the classic liar card game. The main objective is to find the impostor among the crew of a spaceship before it takes off for its next mission. The imposter, on the other hand, will do his utmost to eliminate the other crew members and sabotage the spaceship. His identity has to be revealed before he can bring his Machiavellian plans to fruition.

Gameplay

  • Strategy: Players will have to complete tasks on board of the spaceship, while investigating and debating who they think is behind the evil deeds. If it's your turn to be the impostor, you must sabotage, lie, create chaos and do everything in your power to avoid being discovered.
  • Players: A typical Among Us game can have from 4 to 15 players, including a total of 1 to 3 impostors. At the start of every game a new impostor is assigned. Regular crew members will receive a list of tasks that must be completed during their stay at the spaceship.
  • Stay alert: The crew can beat the impostor by completing all tasks before the impostor manages to sabotage the ship or assassinate all team members. However, crew members are extremely vulnerable while focused on their tasks. If you get distracted, the impostor can catch you by surprise. You will have to be constantly vigilant.
  • Discuss: When an impostor kills one of the crew members, the body will stay there until someone finds it. At that moment you can start a discussion round in which the crew will have to discuss who is suspected to be the impostor.
  • Sabotage: Sabotage is something that only impostors can do. Keep an eye out for certain points of the ship that can be destroyed, shut down the reactors and alter the oxygen levels. If you manage to destroy the spaceship before the crew completes their missions, you will be victorious.

Graphics

Although it is a game with fairly simple 2D graphics, its gameplay is highly addictive. Once you start playing you won't be able to stop!
