Many have tried to recreate the popular game Among Us into many other different experiences and now we have the well-received Among You. One of the limitations of the base game is that it must be played with other people. However, if you don't have a strong internet connection, a good device, or enough friends, or just don't trust strangers, then you can't experience it. That's why this take on it makes it so that it's you against the game with a similar feeling of tension, paranoia, and the fact that you're being hunted. Fear what lies in the dark, detective.
About Among You
Among Us has a solid party game model that is easy to understand and play, but relies on a multiplayer presence. This game tries to turn it into a single-player game and succeeds well at it. The same esthetics and feels of the original game are there while creating a different atmosphere that comes hand-in-hand with the fact that you're playing by yourself. You have no idea when the hunter will come for you or what moves they're making. You just need to stay vigilant and work fast to solve the case before you become the masked killer's next victim.
How to Play
Among you is a 2D top-down game about being a detective trying to catch an impostor using a mouse and keyboard.
- Cursor - Navigate UI
- Left Mouse Button - Select Action
- W/Up Arrow - Move Up
- S/Down Arrow - Move Down
- A/Left Arrow - Move Left
- D/Right Arrow - Move Right
The goal is to catch the impostor before you're killed. Like traditional Among Us, your main abilities involve running around and interacting with elements. When you think you've figured it out, go to the Meeting Station and make your decision. If the masked killer catches you, it's game over. You can choose the second mode so that you'll have a chance to explore the area.
While exploring the darkened areas, you'll need to look for evidence. This can take the form of sparkling items on the ground or actual dead bodies that you can find and report. You're aiming to gather enough evidence to eliminate suspects so that you can find the impostor who has no alibi. The impostor is a masked figure that will move around the ventilation system and will pursue you if it detects you.
When you make your choice, you will win if you successfully eject the impostor. If you eject someone innocent, you'll be ejected as punishment.
Tips and Tricks
Your best chance at survival is to keep moving and stay away from any vents. Listen closely to the killer to see how they're moving around. If they spot you, immediately start running and try to weave around obstacles to slow them down and break their line of sight.
