Among Us

Among Us is a multiplayer social deduction game developed and published by InnerSloth. The game was released on June 15, 2018, for iOS and Android devices, and on August 18, 2018, for Microsoft Windows. The game is set in a space-themed backdrop, 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 complete tasks around the map, and to identify and vote out the Impostors, while the goal of the Impostors is to sabotage the ship and kill the Crewmates.

The game is played online with between four and ten players. Players are assigned one of two roles: Crewmate or Impostor. There are three to five Impostors in each game, and the rest of the players are Crewmates. The Crewmates' goal is to complete all of the tasks assigned to them, while the Impostors' goal is to sabotage the ship and kill the Crewmates. The game can be played in two modes: Local Play and Online Play. 

Local Play is when players are in the same room and connect their devices to the same Wi-Fi network. Online Play is when players connect to the internet and can play with players from around the world. 

The game is free to play, but there are in-game microtransactions that players can use to purchase cosmetics for their avatar. 

Graphics

The graphics are colorful and cute, and the characters are simple yet effective. The environments are well designed and there is a good variety of them. The graphics are not amazing but they are good enough and they do not take away from the gameplay.
