While Among Us released just over two years ago, it became an unexpected success over the last few months, after streamers on Twitch discovered the game. Since then, Among Us has become a bit of a pop culture hit. While the team's priorities might not sound like the most exciting thing in the world, they will prove integral to Among Us' continued success. Maintaining the game's current momentum will prove to be a bit of a challenge, as players tend to move on quickly to the next big thing. As such, making sure that the game is enjoyable and accessible makes a lot of sense!
For those unfamiliar, Among Us is an online multiplayer game in which Crewmates try to accomplish certain tasks, while Imposters work to sabotage them. In order to succeed, the Crewmates must root out the Imposters, though it can sometimes prove difficult to tell who is friend and who is foe. This dynamic has lent itself well to the streaming format, as players work to deceive their opponents.
