A late bloomer, Among Us has become quite the cultural phenomenon, often fluttering around the top of the Twitch TV Directory and Steam Charts and with many millions of players still flooding into the ranks of its playerbase. But where does all of this joy and adulation come from? And what makes Among Us so alluring to the gaming audience at large?
Well, glossy technicolor jumpsuits, a cutesy Saturday-morning cartoon aesthetic, and blood-drenched murder scenes amid an atmosphere of paranoia, dishonesty, and suspicion so thick it can practically be scooped out of the air, of course! Indeed Among Us is a game like no other. A game with character.
A game with great GIFs.

What you don’t know can’t hurt you, as they say. Unless, of course, it’s the identity of the murderous shape-shifting imposter aboard your ship, posing as a crewmate, and progressively hacking all of your trusted and family to death. In that case, it very much can hurt you. A lot.

Breaking up with someone is hard. It takes tact. Especially when that someone is a homicidal alien posing as a human loved one.

Never mess with someone who has a pair of scissors on hand. Even if you have a tongue spear. Especially if you have a tongue-spear.
Nobody is exempt from the wrath of the imposter. Not even Patrick.

What, exactly, is he poking there?
Ah, the Among Us Circle of Life. Exactly as creepy as expected.
I think he’s dead.
Blue’s acting kind of sus, huh?

The new sequel to Reservoir Dogs is looking a little off.
When the imposter vents right into the room everyone’s huddling in.
