Among Us is a multiplayer social deduction game where in you are in a spaceship and one of your fellow crewmates is an imposter. Before starting the game, it randomly assigns a person who the imposter or who is the crewmate is so you will know which is your role.
Before you start playing, you are given an option as to which game mode you want to play. Local or Online. Local is a mode wherein you are in the same network as the people you want to play with. Online is where you can choose a server and play with random strangers.
Once you're in Online, you, then, choose what type of game you want to do. You can create your own room, create a private room or go into a public room. If you have friends to play with, you can create a private room or if not, then choose the public room.
Each room has a setting before you go in to the lobby, the host usually creates the room and can choose it to be public or private. The host can set it as to how many people can come into the room, how many imposters and what map it is.
In the lobby, you will be able to customize your look with a color and different type of hats and be able to see how many has joined the room. The host can start the game anytime or as the room is full.
Once the game has started, you will be assigned a role. This role will be your role until the game is over.
There are only 2 roles in the game, the crewmate or imposter. If you're the crewmate, you have 2 goals.
If you're the imposter, your goal is to KILL and not be found out.
Anyone can have the ability to call an emergency meeting or report a dead body. Once that's been initiated, everyone will be in a chatroom to discuss as to why they have been summoned.
In this event, whoever is the imposter or whoever is accused can defend themselves or lie their way through.
The goal of the crewmate is to defend that they are not in the imposter while the goal of the imposter is to defend that they are not the imposer. It's a game of outwitting and convincing everyone around you.
Once the imposter is found, then it's a victory for the crewmate but if not, then it's a defeat.
How to win the game if you're a crewmate
The only way to win the game is to finish all the task (like everyone should finish it). Even if you have been killed by the imposter, you can still do your task while the imposter is roaming around looking for his / her next victim.
The other way is to actually guess the imposter. So it's all about trusting whoever has explained on what really happened.
We give it a 5 like definitely a 5 out of 5. This game is just loads of fun on guessing who the imposter is and you can hear all sorts of excuse to whoever you play it with. You won't believe how many people are really good at creating alibis.
