Although it is already a few years old, Among Us It has become very important in recent months due to the pandemic, confinement and its peculiar dynamics.
What is it Among Us? It is a role-playing game in which we observe an impostor and other crew members on a ship. The impostor has to take down a certain number of players without being discovered.
He wins when he kills everyone or when the crew cannot arrange a sabotage. Crewmembers can win when they manage to find the impostor, so the dynamic becomes an experience full of challenges, stealth and sabotage.
It is more enjoyable if it is enjoyed with friends locally, but that does not detract from the online gameplay.
Due to its fun and simple dynamics, gamers have been waiting for a second installment, although the developers already specified that they prefer to invest efforts in updating and improving the first version.

In the process that was revealed, it is possible to appreciate how the idea for the backpack came much later.
“This is literally the only concept art of the design that the crew could have had. We did it very quickly, “said PuffballsUnited on his Twitter account.
This is how the characters in the game might have looked:
