Developer Inner Sloth sure hit the jackpot this year, after their game, Among Us blew up in popularity this year. With over 3M followers on Twitch, Among Us now has a popularity that every few indie games can ever hope to gain, like Undertale and Cuphead.

Among Us is a party game, focusing on deceit and deception. There are two teams — The Crewmates and the Imposters. The goal of the Crewmates is to finish their jobs across their ship, while the Imposters sabotage and kill off the Crewmates.

Anytime, one of the players finds the body of a player or hosts an emergency meeting, discussion time begins. Players, then try to find the imposter and vote him off the ship.
