Among Us is published in 2018 by an American game studio Innersloth. This game takes place in a space-themed setting where each player can take one role from the two roles available in the game i.e., “Crewmate” and “Imposter.” As a crewmate, you have to identify imposters and eliminate them, and finally to complete your tasks around the map while as an imposter you have to kill the crewmate before completing their tasks. Crewmates will win in both ways if all the imposters get eliminated and killed or either if crewmates complete all the given tasks while win if the number of imposters gets equal to crewmates.
If a player dies in this game, they become a ghost. Ghosts have the ability to pass through walls, chat with other ghosts and spectate other players. Ghosts can also help their living teammates by completing their tasks in both roles (as a crewmate or as an imposter). The game will also end if a player from any team quits the match. To help the cremates in the identification of the imposters there are surveillance systems in each map i.e., security cameras system on The Skeld, a vitals indicator in Polus, and a doorlog in MIRA HQ.
Crewmates can also confirm their identity through visual tasks that can’t be faked by imposters. A living player can also call a group meeting by reporting a dead body or just by pressing the Emergency Meeting Button anytime. In the game’s lobby, there are various options that can be adjusted by the player to customer aspects of gameplay i.e., player movement speed, the allowed number of emergency meetings, etc. There are also many other options of cosmetic options which includes spacesuit colors, skins, pets, and hat in which some of them are paid downloadable content.
