(This post will be updated once new information comes.)

Developed and published by American game studio Innersloth, Among Us was first released on June 15, 2018 as a mobile game and received mainstream attention during its first years.
But due to many well-known Twitch streamers and YouTubers playing it in 2020, the game became a global phenomenon resulting its sequel Among Us 2 being announced for August 2020 release. However, the planned sequel was canceled a month later and the team shifted their focus to improving the original game. Among Us has inspired internet memes and achieved a large following online.

Due to the game's popularity, it received several awards in 2020 including the Breakthrough Award at the Golden Joystick 2020 Awards held November 24 and both Best Mobile Game and Best Multiplayer Awards at the recently-concluded The Game Awards 2020 held December 10.

The game is currently available in mobile (both Android and iOS), PC through Steam, and soon on the Nintendo Switch.

The game takes place in a space-themed setting, in which players each take on one of two roles, most being Crewmates, and a predetermined number being Impostors.

The goal of the Crewmates is to identify the Impostors, eliminate them, and complete tasks around the map; the Impostors' goal is to covertly sabotage and kill the Crewmates before they complete all of their tasks. Players suspected to be Impostors may be eliminated via a plurality vote, which any player may initiate by calling an emergency meeting (except during a crisis) or reporting a dead body. Crewmates win if all Impostors are eliminated or all tasks are completed whereas Impostors win if there is an equal number of Impostors and Crewmates, or if a critical sabotage goes unresolved.
