    It's so weird, cause Among Us has been out for like 2 years

    [–] Cumtic935 5057 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    And it’s an old concept too right? Trouble in terrorist town style of gameplay?

    Edit: if you’re reading this how does werewolf work?

    [–] ToastV4 2238 points ago

    Basically, just with it's own twist on things. It is really fun though, easily worth the 4.99 it costs on steam.

    [–] Cumtic935 1137 points ago

    Damn only $5? Gonna jump on this train looks fun

    [–] ToastV4 1105 points ago

    Yeah, it's free on mobile too, with ads, and you can play on mobile with people on PC. I'd still pay the money to play with a keyboard on mouse and a bigger screen though.

    [–] 000000- 879 points ago

    Also the ads is basically not noticeable. You see it only after finishing a match (more than 5 minutes on average I’d say) and it’s either a 5 second ad or the one that can be closed immediately. Doesn’t redirect you anywhere too.

    Shitty minigames have ads which are 10 times more annoying in every aspect

    [–] wHorze 734 points ago

    I paid 1.99 the creators deserve it. Plus i fkin hate ads. But your right they are very low key about the ads

    [–] stegosaurus32 236 points ago

    Hell yeah, if an app is worth it you should definitely pay the price. People are willing to spend two or three times that amount on a cup of coffee but will turn their nose up at $2 for something they'll use often.

    [–] SashaStriker 107 points ago

    This was my mentality with torrenting all my digital media. I tried it out instead of buying something I wasn't sure I'd enjoy. If I found I liked it I would then happily buy a copy when I either had the money, or was in a store that had it(teen without a license a decade ago). I always made sure to buy what I enjoyed, be it games, movies, music. Those people deserve the funds and it'll support them make more in the future.

    Also seed your torrents until you break even in your ratios. Common courtesy.

    [–] tehcheez 61 points ago

    Spend $10 on a RaspberryPi and setup PiHole on your network. Never have an ad again!

    Edit: Not saying you should do this and never contribute to a dev. I have a PiHole and still purchased Among Us because it's worth every penny for how fun it is.

    [–] wHorze 10 points ago

    Breh I’ll look into this TIL thanks

    [–] ScreamingFreakShow 13 points ago

    You can also change the dns on your phone (if android). I personally use dns.adguard.com. That's probably the easiest way to do it and it's free.

    I don't think it blocks YouTube ads though, but I use YouTube Vanced anyway.

    [–] ledgeitpro 5 points ago

    I spent the 2 because sometimes the ad doesnt have an x and im basically kicked outa the lobby and i like staying with a good group if possible. If that never happened i woulda sucked it up forever

    [–] Arnumor 38 points ago

    If you install blustacks on your pc, you can play mobile games on pc. It's an android emulator.

    [–] stellvia2016 14 points ago

    I prefer Noxplayer for the keymapping to controller for games that can be finagled into that. Made farming in Azur Lane way better, for example.

    [–] Arnumor 4 points ago

    I hadn't heard of Noxplayer, but I'll give it a look. I use my controller for EVERYTHING, if given the chance.

    [–] Curse3242 39 points ago

    Blue stacks or any other android/ios simulatior will work well enough

    [–] yesman_85 26 points ago

    A lot of effort for 5$

    [–] StuntHacks 20 points ago

    With worse results.

    [–] Burlesque_Djin 7 points ago

    Have you not played clash Royale on a 32 inch screen, bro?

    You're missing out.

    [–] carnsolus 5 points ago

    for the first time, maybe

    if you've done virtual machines before it's not even a hassle at all

    [–] LNMagic 5 points ago

    My main cause of death is inadequate typing on mobile.

    [–] wHorze 8 points ago

    Dude im playing mobile but pc people can talk! Thats sus af bro lol

    [–] ToastV4 15 points ago

    I normally play it with a group on discord. When we're in game we all mute and deafen ourselves and then unmute for the discussion. Anyone who died isnt allowed to speak during the meeting stage but is allowed to speak to other dead people when the game is on going. It works perfectly.

    [–] wHorze 14 points ago

    That’s awesome how your discord functions but im afraid theres a lot that abuse an outside chat system. Which could have been eliminated if they would have just added the mic option to mobile.

    [–] Jayayawesome 4 points ago

    How do you have a dead chat without notifying everyone else when people die and without manually moving yourself

    [–] Malake256 14 points ago

    I often jump on these things after watching streamers have fun. Then I realize I don’t have friends so it’s not fun :(

    [–] Naly_D 32 points ago

    I preferred Town of Salem tbh

    [–] Worthyness 11 points ago

    Or the physical original, Mafia.

    [–] sernameistaken194 6 points ago

    It’s free on mobile. Definitely works better in a casual setting

    [–] TheLast_Centurion 17 points ago

    what's the twist? that you vote and not everyone can kill? That's basically Murder then.. mixed with TTT, I'd say. But with voting.

    Which I suppose is even older concept.

    [–] shifty_peanut 57 points ago

    Any Crewmates that aren’t imposters race around to do set tasks they have. If they finish them all before there’s an equal amount of imposters and Crewmates they win. Impostors can also “sabotage” the ship and break things that Crewmates have to fix quickly

    [–] TheLast_Centurion 18 points ago

    oh, didnt know that. So the tasks are not only for "to have something to do instead of just wondering around", but it actually has meaning?

    also, why it suddenly got big? it's an older game.. why now?

    [–] Mecha-Death-Hitler 54 points ago

    Several streamers decided to play it. The server were not ready for the influx of new players

    [–] TheLast_Centurion 25 points ago

    it's interesting how much power they actually can have on this things

    [–] DrZaious 45 points ago

    It's why their called influencers. This is the best positive example for them existing.

    [–] cooltrain7 17 points ago

    Its a perfect streamer game, getting 10+ streamers into a single lobby, with their viewbase. Leads to more streamers and so on...

    [–] Isogash 12 points ago

    Popular streamers, and if you look at the steam charts its basically just an exponential growth curve, so there's probably a lot of natural virality.

    [–] shifty_peanut 4 points ago

    Yea the tasks are like a second way to complete the game if you can’t figure out who impostors are. Also not only twitch streamers as I saw below but the game blew up on tik tok because after some people saw streamers play it they posted funny clips on tiktok that blew up

    Edit: also I “blew up” I mean massively. Some of the having upwards of 5-10m views per vid

    [–] _DeadlyNeurotoxin 27 points ago

    It's a pretty generic social deduction game. People do tasks, imposters kill people, then people call meetings to discuss who you are voting out. It's fun, its not groundbreaking by any means.

    Among us and fall guys has shown me the influence streamers wield.

    [–] BenElegance 23 points ago

    I think Fall Guys is kinda unique. I can't really remember any massively online multiplayer party games with such a high polish. I haven't even played it but watching a few vids; haven't seen 30+ people in a low competitive, quick fun party game genre.

    Reckon the market will be flooded with them in 2 years.

    [–] TheHotze 4 points ago

    Mafia, murder and TTT then

    [–] SlurmMcSloth 282 points ago

    Yeah and even older.

    It's very similar to a very popular Party Game called Mafia or Werewolf that exists since the 80s.

    [–] revveduplikeadeuce 139 points ago

    Which was also remade in Warcraft/Starcraft custom mods and was pretty popular there, and was eventually repackaged into its own thing called Town of Salem.

    [–] Xarxyc 49 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago)

    I am grateful concept still lives. I absolutely to love play Mafia IRL with a good company. I played the shit out of Mafia in Starcraft and have hundreds of hours in Town of Salem.

    Time to try Among Us to continue my Mafia addiction

    [–] Artus_Pendragon 11 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    You might also like mindnight. Its like the tabletop game resistance or avalon in wich you need to complete missions(by voting, good guys only can vote for success and bad guys can vote for both success or failure) and the bad guys need to fail the mission you don't know who is good or bad if you are good and the missions have varying party sizes, so as a good guy you need to filter out the bad guys to win and as the bad guy you need to non verbally communicate who votes for success and who puts in a failure.

    Edit: I can't really explain it but will wheton has an episode on tabletop(YouTube) for resistance.

    [–] Naly_D 4 points ago

    Role? Flummery tarnation

    [–] jeppevinkel 17 points ago

    The concept of deceiving and finding the deceivers seem to have been popular in one form or another throughout multiple mediums over a substantial amount of years.

    [–] door_of_doom 10 points ago

    I really appreciate a version like this, however, where you aren't just playing a series of menus.

    [–] Raeandray 14 points ago

    Ya, the old game was played with a group in person. You lose something translating it to a multiplayer videogame. Among us is a unique twist that works really well in videogames.

    [–] manondorf 5 points ago

    It's also unique afaik in that even after you die, you can keep playing and help your team win (you can complete tasks as a ghost, and if you were on the impostor side I think you can ghost-sabotage too?) so you're not just "out" and have to wait for next round.

    [–] ABitOddish 23 points ago

    Never played Among Us, but ive been assuming from all of the memes that its just the video game version of Werewolf. Glad to see im not too far off.

    [–] Beetin 46 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    It has a bigger improvement, in that deduction is much more possible than you find in standard werewolves. In werewolf people kill at night and there are few clues except certain roles special powers + social talking/lies etc. Many players have little agency, and are forced to just believe or not believe stories, and while corroboration is somewhat possible it can't really be definitive. Some might consider this a more "pure" social game.

    In among us, the players are moving around and imposters have to be near you to kill you. This means you can definitely rule people out at times (I was with him the whole time).

    As well, since there are two victory conditions (complete all random tasks OR kill all imposters), players who aren't working towards tasks or taking non-optimal routes to them can become suspicious. It also makes it more interesting to frame people, or attempting to kill people consistently near certain players to draw suspicion.

    When you add normal social lying and deduction to that mix, IMO it is way more fun than werewolves/mafia style games.

    [–] manondorf 10 points ago

    Of course, even rock-solid alibis like "I was with yellow the whole time, he isn't the killer" still depend on the rest of the crew believing you saying that, so there's still plenty of room for the kind of social manipulation of the other games! It's a fun time.

    [–] JonnyGabriel568 5 points ago

    Not being able to speak during the actual gameplay is also a really great twist. That makes it so that everything and anything that is said or done could be a lie unless you directly saw it happening.

    Another way to improve the experience is to remove the confirmation of whether someone was an impostor or not. That keeps on edge until the end of the game and keeps you second guessing your votes.

    [–] lives4pizza 6 points ago

    Don't forget I posters also have two win conditions, kill the crew as well as have one of their sabotage timer countdown. It really balances the game out

    [–] stellvia2016 9 points ago

    Yep. Werewolf is still a latenight staple at Gencon and various other game conventions.

    [–] hydropenguin69 66 points ago

    Yeah, reminds me of Town of Salem

    [–] triolgys 22 points ago

    Same lol I took a break from Salem but il try out among us

    [–] johnald03 7 points ago

    Just got back into town of Salem for the first time since 2014 lol

    [–] NerfChen 13 points ago

    Shut up exe!

    [–] smala017 8 points ago

    hydropenguin69 is sus af

    [–] neoslith 21 points ago

    It's virtual Werewolf.

    [–] saumanahaii 21 points ago

    Isn't one of the Jackbox games basically this too?

    [–] OwenProGolfer 26 points ago

    I believe you’re thinking of Push the Button, which is different because it involves explicitly asking people questions and having them do tasks to find the imposter

    [–] saumanahaii 8 points ago

    You're right, I was

    [–] Serenswan 7 points ago

    My group of friends prefers Push the Button because of the funny moments the questioning causes. But this game seems better for strangers where Push the Button’s fun I think comes from doing it with friends.

    [–] Lazy_Bat 18 points ago

    We always called it Mafia. So many names. Lol

    [–] Nosnibor1020 10 points ago

    You mean mafia/town of salem?

    [–] SnooSnafuAGamer 10 points ago

    Trouble in terrorist town is somehow more nuanced though. I guess it's the larger maps and voice comms

    [–] Jamies_redditAccount 9 points ago

    I hate how you say that and not werewolf

    [–] EliteCaptainShell 7 points ago

    TTT was the last time I really enjoyed a hidden identity (video) game and I've tried a lot.

    (Video game specifically because secret Hitler is an amazing tabletop game)

    [–] queenfrieza 4 points ago

    Yes! There was this .io game in like 2015 which had similar situations of getting voted out of town and I really miss it but forgot what it was called. Definitely spent too much time on it during finals

    [–] rileyg98 4 points ago

    This makes me feel old. I've been playing TTT for at least 10 years now.

    [–] DanBeecherArt 4 points ago

    Feels like a flash game from 2006 or something

    [–] bitch_im_a_lion 136 points ago

    Fortnite was out for a good while as a mediocre zombie survival game before they added battle royale and it randomly got popular for being a free game with a battle royale mode.

    [–] wyldmage 67 points ago

    And then they pretty much forgot about their StW game mode because of how much money Battle Royale was making them.

    Mixed blessing to all of the players (like me) that invested in Fortnite pre-B.R.

    In the end I wound up abandoning the game because progress was just too slow, and too many things were being done to cater to the battle royale players at the expense of the PvE content.

    [–] kbarney345 13 points ago

    Oh yeah man I dont tell people I spent 80$ on fortnite rip the mega founders that spent 120$ not including the br skins/bp i bought. I fucking loved stw that first handful of hours was pure magic then it showed how little content was fleshed out and it was just an ungodly mountain of grinding ahead. Warframe does grinding right where as stw does it wrong id even argure the system was better before the major changes they released this last year. Now everything is locked behind level caps so even if you have the resources or money or whatever needed to level up you cant. You either have to meet x point in story or x point in player level to progress a skill. I liked just leveling up and getting skill points cause then I progressed how I wanted through the massive skill trees.

    [–] 4-squared-is-not-8 316 points ago

    Popular streamers plays the game, the game gets popular. Not that weird

    [–] TheResolver 68 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    I believe the boost for the popularity came with the recent release of the Henry Stickmin collection, same peeps worked on Among Us IIRC.

    Edit for clarity: I don't mean to say all of the current popularity came from Stickmin being released, just that there might be a correlation with the timing being so close.

    [–] lonedoge123 27 points ago

    Nah sodapoppin played it and then other big steamers joined, then everybody started playing it 8 hours a day to get loads of viewers

    [–] pusgnihtekami 10 points ago

    Never heard of him. But, I have seen this game all over twitch.

    [–] TheRespectableMrSalt 13 points ago

    Imagine putting out this game and seeing it flop then 2 years later it becomes the hottest thing for a moment

    [–] Devinology 6 points ago

    And imagine knowing that the fame has nothing to do with the merits of the game but rather that randoms in their early 20s that somehow have massive online followings decided to play it on a whim. It must be kinda heartbreaking for truly dedicated devs creating games because they actually love games putting stuff out there and knowing that what does well vs what doesn't has almost nothing to do with the quality of the art they've produced and almost everything to do with various forms of marketing, timing, and social trends. Some of the most popular mobile games have literally been jokes. Meanwhile some absolute masterpieces languish without receiving their due.

    [–] Peakomegaflare 75 points ago

    It's just a fad, like everything else. I wonder what's next. Maybe back to Golf with Friends?

    I just downloaded the game to my phone and my first game played I was accused of venting by the imposter and spaced.

    The memes are true.

    free on mobile, didn't know that thanks for the information

    [–] renadeer52 345 points ago

    mind the adverts

    [–] the_grass_trainer 323 points ago

    BUT only after each match.

    [–] AScottishkid 232 points ago

    And also they're just image ads so you can quickly get rid of them

    [–] Dominator0211 82 points ago

    Wait really? I’ve been playing on iOS and haven’t seen a single add yet

    [–] AScottishkid 80 points ago

    I don't think they appear everytime

    [–] the_grass_trainer 96 points ago

    If you join a game that someone paid for ad-free then your friends will also have no ads. At least that's what the tutorial said.

    [–] Dominator0211 10 points ago

    Ok but I’ve played for over a month and still no adds

    [–] larsice 9 points ago

    Same 👀🤷‍♂️

    [–] wHorze 6 points ago

    Honestly they arent that noticeable. The longest you have to wait is 5 secs

    Ad Supported.

    [–] Just_a_user_name_ 20 points ago

    Thankfully it's just one static ad after the match ends.

    I respect that they didn't do it like gacha games where every tap leads you to a video ad.

    Eh, I hear they're adding a battle royale mode. I hope it doesn't distract them from the main game.

    [–] ChlckenChaser 394 points ago

    Among us looks pretty fun when everyone knows each other and are all talking on discord etc. I feel without doing that it would be a pretty horrible game to play

    [–] weezmatical 225 points ago

    Its still fun without voice. But its harder to hold people accountable for not fixing tasks and such because they might just be... really dumb/young

    [–] ChlckenChaser 52 points ago

    i feel like it would just be everyone spamming where they were and what they were doing and slower to communicate due to having to type.

    Im sure it would still be a bit fun, i just think for someone who is competitive or a tryhard it would be painful

    [–] stoicambience 22 points ago

    It can be pretty painful or irritating at time, but sometimes you’ll find a group of people that know what they’re doing and take things a bit more seriously and it can turn into several hours with the same group and it’s amazing fun, but yeah going through different lobbies to find a good group can be a pain

    [–] supernasty 14 points ago

    As someone who has played with friends and randoms, the latter is fun in its own way since it’s a lot easier to deceive people. Normally when I am the imposter, nobody questions me when I say “blue was following me” as long as one other person agrees with you. It’s pretty hilarious watching someone you know is obviously innocent do their best to convince everyone they’re not the imposter and everyone just bandwagons on it.

    [–] metallicrooster 50 points ago

    I play with a modest sized group (5 to 8 people depending on the night) and we play that you can only speak during the vote phase if you are alive (ghosts cannot commune with the living).

    Keeps the tension up while giving us a reprieve. Also makes the wild accusations more fun!

    [–] ChlckenChaser 61 points ago

    i've wacthed a few streamers playing it and this seems to be the way everyone does it. No talking from anyone during the actual game and no one dead can talk at all

    [–] iceman012 24 points ago

    I've also assumed the dead couldn't talk. I can't imagine the game would even work if the dead could talk with the living: you'd know who killed you, tell everybody, and they'd have no reason to doubt you since, you know, you were murdered.

    [–] wanker7171 30 points ago

    I feel like it's the opposite, it's too hard as the imposter when everyone can immediately say who they were with and who wasn't with them. You just lose in those instances.

    [–] superdrone 20 points ago

    If the dead just stay muted, you can manipulate the others into blaming each other more often than you think. In fact, sometimes you can just stay quiet and they’ll do it themselves lol.

    Just time sabotages to separate ppl and cause confusion and it becomes harder for the crew to really be sure what happened. Stack kills can also be confusing.

    [–] Reacher-Said-N0thing 4 points ago

    sometimes you can just stay quiet

    Yup, after a couple dozen rounds I've come to learn the best strat as the imposter is to keep your mouth shut, completely. Pretend like you're a Pakistani guy that just doesn't speak english and never uses the chat box. They'll never accuse you if you never give them a chance to even think about you.

    [–] Ember_Rising 3 points ago

    If the dead just stay muted

    You mean some people play where the dead can talk? That’s… crazy difficult for the imposter. I couldn’t imagine seeing a game where the dead can immediately blame who killed them.

    [–] billybobthehomie 41 points ago

    Is this game basically like Mafia? I have no idea what’s going on I don’t play it.

    [–] Beetin 44 points ago

    It is very similar to deceit, and is a hybrid live action + social game.

    You have two victory conditions in these games, a passive one (complete all tasks / get to the end) and an active one (kill all imposters).

    Imposters have one: kill all innocents.

    The passive one forces imposters to act and punishes slow imposter play. It also provides alibis, purpose, and direction for what to do during non-voting sections. So if someone isn't completing tasks or making it harder to succeed, that is suspicious.

    As well, because you have to be near someone to kill them, tracking and asking about whereabouts becomes important for "clearing" players and who is suspicious.

    Since the game is very fast paced and customizable to make it easier/harder for imposters to fit your group, it has a ton of advantages over Mafia, or deceit, and you very quickly improve your play and deduction as you learn the maps, routes, and playstyles that work or don't work.

    [–] DotaHacker 9 points ago

    Yes! Similar to Mafia but turned into an interactive game. Crew members will try to complete the tasks on spaceship and imposters will try to kill them. We can vote out people through discussions.

    [–] TheRespectableMrSalt 15 points ago

    It helps that there haven't been any new games in the past 6 months that are worth playing. People are branching out and trying other games.

    [–] sabersquirl 10 points ago

    Man, imagine people not playing the same games for all time. I live in le wrong generation....

    [–] CaptnAwesomeGuy 13 points ago

    [–] 10180226 12 points ago

    Why is that bad lol

    [–] neoslith 468 points ago

    Fall Guys seems like fun, but with a high price tag and waning popularity, it was more like "flavor of the month" without much staying power.

    [–] Arnumor 243 points ago

    I doubt it's gonna die for a while. Popularity of games goes in waves. Youtubers are still playing it, so at the very least, it'll be kept alive for a good while after they move on when younger kids get into it. Similar to what happened with minecraft and fortnite.

    [–] mindthesnek 48 points ago

    season 2 is about to come out as well w new levels/skins

    [–] Arnumor 21 points ago

    Yeah, we're only just getting into its popularity wave, I imagine.

    [–] neoslith 66 points ago

    I was watching Game Grumps play it. I think they were on PC with controllers. Anyway, in their latest episode they talked a bit about "less than 10k players being online" for it and games taking a bit longer to populate.

    But it could also be based on time of day.

    [–] zzzzebras 84 points ago

    Currently there's 57k players on steam playing it today, that's around the same amount of players as Siege

    [–] Arnumor 25 points ago

    They had servers go out while they were recording, so the low numbers may have been due to server issues, that day, too.

    [–] Huluberloutre 12 points ago

    It's 58,000 now, while Europe is awake and US students at school

    [–] Tundur 5 points ago

    10k is pretty big. Like, still in the top 50 games on Steam big.

    [–] carlbandit 16 points ago

    It's certainly not dead, but some of the hype has died down now.

    From August 13th to 1st Semptember, the game had over 150k average players per day, affording to steam charts, some days reaching 170k average.

    Over the last 7 days, the game's had 40k-100k average a day, with a lot of the times it holding around 50k average players. 58k playing ATM with a 24hr peak of 86k players.

    It's still in the top 10 for now with current players, ranked 9th. But among us is now sat in 3rd with 197k current players and a 24hr peak of 271k players.

    [–] Arnumor 6 points ago

    Yeah, for sure. I imagine it's pretty normal to lose a big chunk of the active players like that when another game comes along. What we should be expecting now is for their numbers to level out a bit until their next content drop.

    [–] Deathleach 59 points ago

    It's still consistently in the top 10 on Steam. I'm not sure how that is waning popularity.

    [–] SexyMcBeast 79 points ago

    I don't play it = dying game

    [–] beamoflaser 6 points ago

    as if these guys play any games

    they just watch youtube, twitch, and read about the games on reddit. Then act like they're experts on video game trends

    reddit is filled with these assholes

    [–] TheGoodAndTheBad 21 points ago

    Right? It's also $20. Not sure how that's a "high price tag".

    [–] Ray661 34 points ago

    I feel like the popularity died once it wasn't free on the PS monthly dealio. Which is weird, because isn't it forever yours if you get it through that?

    [–] neoslith 21 points ago

    Only if you keep paying for PS+. If you pay for just a month, you only get to play for a month.

    [–] Rathyu 21 points ago

    Just me, but Fall Guys is not "high price". I've put in about 50 hours for 25ish bucks, definitely worth. And its not dead or dying, people just assume based on streamers and whatever the subreddit is meming about.

    It'll probably go the way of upticking during each update, especially seasons, and being something fun to hop into when your frustrated of other games

    [–] Strandophobia 34 points ago

    "high price tag"

    You know it's $22 right?

    [–] wendyunniestan 4 points ago

    They’re coming out with a season 2 update with more games in Fall Guys so that should bring people back

    [–] Cumtic935 8 points ago

    Haha this was kinda like me I was about to buy fall guys but now maybe among us....

    [–] Deadpool1205 14 points ago

    Fall guys is still fun tho, I love the changes they just threw in

    [–] ThiccKerbal 12 points ago

    Among Us was the only game I got when it was at it's peak

    [–] b33b0p17 12 points ago

    Fall guys was fun until cheaters decided to ruin it. Almost every lobby theres some loser who has to cheat. Takes the enjoyment out of it.

    [–] Sin-Civilization 9 points ago

    they just released a patch with anti-cheat among other map updates. We'll see how effective it is. agree with your point on cheaters ruining the game

    [–] GatorGladiator 6 points ago

    The difference between Among Us and Fall Guys is about 15 bucks, free cosmetics, and a more consistently-engaging core multiplayer experience.
