  • This Among Us documentary details the development of the video game Among Us and goes behind the scenes of its creation. Discover how the members of the small indie studio InnerSloth all met each other in college and started working on Among Us in 2017, after a previous project failed. Originally, the game was only playable on mobile and didn’t support online multiplayer. After the Steam release months later, the team was thinking about giving up on the game entirely.
    The documentary also explores how Among Us became a massive success for the small indie studio and what kind of impact it had on the game itself and the developers. It also details all the design decisions that InnerSloth made throughout development. Lastly, the documentary also takes a look at what’s next for Among Us.

    The story of how Among Us managed to reach tons of fame despite being released 2 years ago with barely anyone knowing about the game is unironically beautiful and motivating honestly

    All entrepreneurs have thought of quitting before. The remaining ones simply persevered.

    From being an unnoticed game to winning three awards for the game in December 2020 it taught us to never give up and learning from failures .

    It’s funny I’m coming across this, me and my friends have been playing Among Us on and off since 2018, and only now seeing it get so popular and all of my favorite streamers playing it is pretty cool.

    I remember playing this game like 1 year ago with my friend. There were like hardly any lobbies available. Although I would be telling a big lie if I said I preferred 2020 among us compared to 2019 among us. 2019 among us was a lot more fun since most of the players then actually were smart and not just a bunch of 2 year old kids.

    A team of three. I can't imagine how much stress they must endure. Congrats 👏👏

    Animal Crossing and Among Us’ blow up this year really reflects on what people miss the most, social life and interaction.
