In 2018, ‘Among Us’ saw less than 1,000 concurrent players. In Sept. 2020, this number peaked at 3.5 million
It seems like every week there is a new activity that people are obsessed with during quarantine. This past month has seen an immense surge in downloads and playtime of the online, space-themed game Among Us.
There is nothing spectacular about a new, popular game, except for the fact that it is not new at all. Among Us was originally published in 2018 by a three-person team to little mainstream fanfare. Through the power of social media, it has become a surprise quarantine hit.
What is Among Us?
Among Us is an online, multiplayer game that takes place on a spaceship. The gameplay is similar to Mafia, a.k.a. Werewolf, a.k.a Secret Hitler, a.k.a myriad names that are essentially the same game. If you don’t know what that means, just ignore what I said and read the next few paragraphs. If you do know what I mean, you can skip to the next section.
In Among Us, players are either a Crewmate, who has to complete tasks around the spaceship, or an Imposter, who pretends to be a Crewmate to sabotage and kill the rest of the Crew.

How popular is Among Us?
Among Us was first published in 2018 by the three-person team at InnerSloth, an independent, American video game developer.
In its first year, the game never saw more than 1,000 concurrent players. This month, it was reported by Screenrant that Among Us saw 388,000 concurrent players on Steam, surpassing PUBG. This doesn’t even take into account the players who are on their phones, as Among Us is downloadable on both iOS and Android. On all devices, it is estimated that the game peaked at 3.5 million concurrent players in late September.
The delayed popularity of the game has been linked to the attention the game has gotten by popular streamers on Twitch and YouTube, including PewDiePie.

On the surface, the popularity of Among Us means that there is a new game that will keep people entertained during this pandemic.
