You must have come across Among Us or ‘Impostor’ across social media recently. Are you thinking what they mean/what they are? Well, we’re here to answer your questions!
What is Among Us?
(Wow! The question sounds mysterious and deep!)
Among Us is an online multiplayer game by InnerSloth in 2018. The game has all of a sudden blown up after it was streamed by Sodapopping ( a Twitch streamer). It’s the hot topic (and game) in the video game world. It has memes made after it, making it trend fire hot on social media. As it’s a multiplayer game, players seem to enjoy playing it with friends!
It’s also the top game in Twitch Gaming and YouTube Gaming. Pewdiepie, Ninja, CouRage are among those who play the game (and seemingly love it too).
What the game’s about
The game takes place in space (how fun), with around 10 people. Each player takes one of the two roles; the crewmate or the Impostor. Keep in mind that the Impostor is predetermined and can be anyone!
Players love the thrill of finding out who is the Impostor among the crew.

A sequel to the first game
News had it that InnerSloth had the sequel underway, but after the recent popularity of the first game, they have decided to improve the features of the first one. So… yes, what you’re thinking is right, Among Us 2 has been delayed.
Until then why don’t you join the fun too?
