Among Us is a social-deduction multiplayer game by InnerSloth studio. Here you can join a crew of up to 10 astronauts and try to survive against villainous crewmembers. Even your friends can be traitors, so strong intuition and logical thinking are your only faith!

Play Anywhere

The great news is that this super-hyped game is available for a large variety of devices. You can join in if you have iOS, Android, Xbox One or Series S/X, Windows, Nintendo Switch, and macOS Big Sur. It means that you can join servers with up to 9 of your friends, independently from the devices they have. Crossplay doesn’t require any additional settings. The only minus is that the version of the game for PC and Nintendo Switch is paid. But we all have smartphones today, don’t we?

The Battle of Lies & Wits

The way you play Among Us depends on the random role you get for each match. As soon as you spawn on the starship, the randomizer assigns you a role of an average crewmember or, if you’re lucky enough, an impostor. Both are exciting but involve different mechanics. Crewmembers are always a larger team (up to 9 players), and they all have to complete various simple quests around the board to keep the ship functioning well.

Impostors have to act like average crewmembers and hunt everyone down to clear the ship and win. They can hide in ventilation, pretend to be busy with quests. It’s a challenging task as peaceful players and even other impostors do everything to identify traitors and persuade everyone to execute them. If you play an impostor, you should cover your tracks and be a skillful liar to make everyone think that you are friendly. All the debates happen in text chats on emergency meetings. Anyone can start them if any dead crewmembers or pieces of evidence are found.

Challenging But Fun

Persuading and reassuring people is a difficult task because everyone looks at the situation from their own angle. You may fail at the start, but when you understand how the psychology of this game works, you will refuse to stop playing and feel the real power of controlling other players’ minds. No matter which role you get, the level of excitement is the same. We recommend this game to everyone who likes Mafia and other games that challenge intuition and communication skills.

Pros:
  • Up to 10 players per match
  • Crossplay matches are enabled by default
  • Great sci-fi setting
  • High replayability
  • Very few ads
Cons:
  • Free for all platforms but PC and Switch
  • The game needs more locations
