Gamers don’t just upload gameplay videos either. More than 6% of views related to Among Us used the word “animation”, according to YouTube statistics. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the percentage of videos are animations, but it does suggest that people are interested in watching “expanded universe” material for the game. Smaller creators have also seen their channels grow from uploading videos among us including entertainment. This despite the fact that the game is also popular with major chains.

It’s no wonder developer Innersloth chose to cancel Among Us 2, instead focusing on maintaining the community and adding more content to the base game. A major beta update added ways to edit voting and added accessibility options for color blind people.

Although not available on consoles, Among Us is currently available on PC, Android, and iOS. The game supports crossplay, so you can enjoy it with your friends regardless of the system. The mobile versions are also free.
