Soon after PUBG Mobile was banned in Many Countries, many new games started trending among gamers worldwide. PUBG Mobile had a big fanbase so players were looking for the perfect alternative to play with friends. Among Us and a few other similar games grabbed the maximum attention of the users. The game had everything you could ask for. Here’s a deep dive into why people opted for this game over many other games in the market.
What is Among Us?
Among us is a multiplayer game which is played between many people just like PUBG Mobile. This is by far one of the best alternatives to the FPS shooting game. Although the genre is the same, people still wanted to play this game with friends due to the unique concept of the game.
The game follows a simple concept. There’s an imposter in the lobby who keeps killing the members inside without being noticed. The one who is killed cannot reveal the real imposter in the lobby.
Fairly simple right?
Well. I wish it was that simple. The game has many more aspects than this which will be discussed further in the article.
What makes the game interesting is the concept behind it. One of your friends is an imposter who is looking to kill you. You just need to make sure that you work alone to complete all your missions.
That’s not it! To make it engaging, the creators have developed missions that you as a crew member of the spaceship need to complete while the imposter is trying to kill all the mates. You and the other crew members also need to keep an eye out for the imposters and if they killed someone nearby.
What makes it Unique?
Among the tough competition of heavy graphic multiplayer games, Among Us is a simple game with a unique concept that is loved by millions of players worldwide. Here are some specials of the game:
- Costumes: The developers and designers have worked hard and smart to design such a unique character which has now become a symbol among the gamers. People are using this icon worldwide as stickers and whatnot.
- Concept: The concept of the game is of course what people have been bragging about so far. It’s very unique and challenging if you’re playing in an unknown lobby.
- Multiplayer: The ability to play with friends is what the game is all about. You can enjoy and spend time with your friends. If you’re following people on YouTube, you might have seen them play while connected to the people on discord.
One of the biggest upsides of Among Us is the game requires no grind. The multiplayer games that exist in the market require loads of hard work to get to the top but here, there’s no competition and it’s all about having fun and chilling out with friends.
Looking at the overall design of the game, it seems the game is low cost and the only requirement the developers had was having a good server for gamers to play those games.
After trying out the game a couple of times, I found some great insights that are created for the imposters. This helps them in devising the right strategy to kill their teammates and empty the spaceship.
But Wait, how are you going to report and remove an imposter?
After you suspect something or a dead body, the crewmates can call a meeting and can discuss the details about who is the possible imposter. The emergency meeting can be called by a person who spots the dead body. We’ve seen long discussions in the group chat sometimes about spotting the imposter. In the end, all the teammates decide who can be the potential imposter, and then they can vote him out. Make sure you’re voting for the correct person otherwise you’re going to lose a crewmate.
Among Us is one of the best games that is trending for quite some time now. Players are going nuts over it and the memes and videos are going viral all over the internet.
