Game: Among Us.

Post by Tawmis » Thu Sep 24, 2020 4:29 pm

So, this game's been out for a year or so, but I just became aware of it.

Our boss, purchased it for all of us, because every third Friday, we do a virtual happy hour (since we're all working from home, and it allows all of us to see and talk with one another casually).

The game is available on Steam (here), for like 4.99 - and it's free on mobile games (with ads between games; but you can pay to get rid of the ads).

Play with 4-10 player online or via local WiFi as you attempt to prepare your spaceship for departure, but beware as one or more random players among the Crew are Impostors bent on killing everyone!

Originally created as a party game, we recommend playing with friends at a LAN party or online using voice chat. Enjoy cross-platform play between Android, iOS and PC.

Customization: Pick your color and hat.

Quickly find a game online from the host list.
In-game text chat.
Rich discord integration.
Cross-platform play between PC, Android, and iOS!

===================

The game is very fun! It's very much like ONE NIGHT WEREWOLF if you've ever played that - but on the PC. With tasks. And no swapping of cards.

So, if you're a crew member and you're killed - you return as a ghost, and can continue to help your team. But you can't speak (and only other dead crew members can see what you type during the meetings).
If you're a dead Imposter (and there's more than one), you can help your fellow Imposter by sabotaging the ship.
