    Among us

    Among us is a multiplayer video game that supports 4-10 players. Developed by American game studio InnerSloth and released on June 15, 2018. The game has a space theme and will randomly select 1-3 players to play as the invaders and the rest of the players to play as the crew. Each player will only know their identity, and if you are the betrayer, your win condition is to kill all crew members without being detected! If you are the crew, your objective is to find the invaders and complete the mission.

    There are four maps in the game: Space Ship, Skyscraper, Polaris and Airship. The crew has to complete tasks on the maps in the form of mini-games, which include maintenance work on vital systems, such as rewiring or refuelling the engines. Intruders are given fake mission lists in order to blend in with the crew. Intruders can identify other intruders and have the ability to sabotage map systems, traverse vents and kill crew members. If the player is killed by the impersonator, they will become a ghost. Ghosts have the ability to pass through walls, but can only continue to interact on the map in a limited way and cannot be seen by any player other than the dead player who has turned into a ghost. All players except the ghost can only see for a limited distance.

    Crew members need to complete all missions or find and destroy all invaders to win, while invaders need to kill a certain number of crew members to equal the number of invaders remaining or destroy the countdown to win, and ghosts win by assisting their teammates who are crew members or invaders to complete missions or perform sabotage. When an intruder carries out a sabotage activity, it either has an immediate effect (e.g. turning off all lights) or the sabotaged facility will start a countdown and if the crew does not solve the facility before the countdown ends, all crew members will die and the game will end.

    If a player finds a body, this can be immediately communicated and all players can be forced to attend a group meeting where the surviving crew will openly debate who they think the 'impostor' is. The purpose of the impostor is to pretend they are a crew member. If no vote is taken, everyone will continue to maintain the ship until another body is found or an emergency meeting is called. If the impostor is voted out, then the crew wins.

    The whole game is full of mystery and seems simple to play, but it is also a brain burner to win in this game. The game is drawn in a flash style, making it very familiar to players. The characters look like candy bean people, which makes the game feel very cute.

    Overall, the game's tight pace and low difficulty made it possible for the game to be downloaded more than 100 million times in September 2020, and the number of players continued to rise, eventually reaching 1.5 million players online at the same time.
