Among Us is an online multiplayer social deduction game. It’s developed by InnerSloth and was first released on June 15, 2018. It offers exciting gameplay in a space-themed setting where each player takes on one of two roles, most being Crewmates, and a preset number being Impostors.
The Crewmates aim to locate the Impostors and eliminate them along with completing tasks around the map. On the other hand, the Impostors' objective is to secretly destroy and eliminate the Crewmates before they meet all their tasks.
