Among Us game is set to get an animated series at CBS Studios
There was a time where Among Us was arguably the biggest game in the world. This fun game promoted cooperation and deception depending on the player’s role. There was a certain joy a gamer felt when they succeeded as the imposter as well as when they worked as a team to win as a crew mate.
Among Us was developed by inner sloth in 2018 but did not blow up until 2020. It became a staple for gamers over the pandemic. There was nothing like getting a group of ten to 12 friends on for a night of Among Us. I remember getting into Discord and playing with roommates, friends back home and other friends in colleges across the country almost nightly. However, the game is not as popular as it once was but that does not mean gamers should forget the great times of the game.
Now, the new Among Us animated series in the works could spark life into the title, it was announced Tuesday.
'Among Us' Animated Series in the Works at CBS Studios From 'Infinity Train' Creator Owen Dennis (EXCLUSIVE) https://t.co/n5SGEYsWXs— Variety (@Variety) June 27, 2023
An animated series is a great idea as the animation style of the game was already great. The game was simple, colorful and goofy, yet extremely captivating for gamers. “Infinity Train” creator Owen Dennis is set to be the creator and executive producer of the Among Us series; Dennis is also highly regarded as a writer and storyboard artist for the classic Cartoon Network series “Regular Show.”
The animated series is supposed to follow the concept of the game with a crew on a mission trying to stay alive and fix the ship as they root out the shape-shifting aliens/imposters on board. Among Us fans should keep an eye on this series at least for the nostalgia of this game.
The game had a lot of customization. Besides the wardrobe customizations like colors, apparel and even pets, it had a plethora of settings and customizations that allowed parties to find their perfect way of playing. This allowed gamers to mix it up between sessions so the gameplay never got too stale.
The maps in this game were fun with a good amount of variety between them. The Skeld was the classic, Polus felt like the big map and Mira HQ offered a compact but wonky layout. The diversity of maps helped certain players excel in different roles on certain maps.
Another positive of the game is the tasks for the most part were entertaining while not feeling overly tedious. Ultimately, Among Us was a fantastic game that took over the gaming community at a time when people yearned for entertainment.
