Epic Games Store: Free Games – 27th May 2021
I don’t think I can say much about Among Us that hasn’t been said already. It’s been out for a couple of years now, but it really only found its feet in 2020 when a bunch of big, successful Twitch streamers picked it up.
In case you’ve been under a rock, you and a bunch of other players are put on a spaceship and you need to perform specific tasks within time limits. But one (or more, depending on how many players you have) is an imposter and will be trying to sabotage the tasks and kill players. If a player sees something or wants to report something, they can hit a button and call a meeting where each player votes to kick someone off of the ship. Find the imposter, win the game. Choose the wrong person and the imposter gets another chance. If they kill everyone then they win.
I played it a bit and really enjoyed it, but I’m not a good liar. I also didn’t know enough about the legit actions to get away with telling lies to my fellow players, so it was always pretty easy for them to guess that I was the imposter. But hey, that’s how you learn, right?
