The Future of Among Us


Hey everyone, PuffballsUnited here! It’s been a very exciting time for us the past few months! We’ve absolutely loved seeing everyone enjoying Among Us! Forte has been working hard to get the servers adjusted to deal with the huge influx of players. Thank you so much for bearing with us through these growing pains. Hopefully we can get started on new content soon! Speaking of new content…

 

Us devs have had several long discussions about what we want to do with the game. When do we stop working on Among Us 1? What content goes into Among Us 2? The main reason we are shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content. However, seeing how many people are enjoying Among Us 1 really makes us want to be able to support the game and take it to the next level. We have decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead put all our focus into improving Among Us 1. All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1. This is probably the more difficult choice because it means going deep into the core code of the game and reworking several parts of it. We have lots of things planned and we’re excited to bring new content to everyone as you continue to enjoy playing!

 

Here’s some things that are coming on the horizon:

* Servers. Forte is still working very hard to figure out our server issues. We don’t have an ETA but things should hopefully be getting better and better. This is taking up all development time on his end.

* Colorblind support. It’s something we’ve put off for way too long… We plan on adding other identifiers for players as well as certain color focused tasks (Like wires). This should also open the potential for more colors. In the past we couldn’t add more colors because it became too difficult to tell players apart.

* Friends/Account System. This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time but just haven’t been able to tackle. For the health of the game going forward we’re going to sink our teeth in and figure it out! This one will definitely take some time.

* A new stage! It is still very early and we have only just begun designing the layout. The theme has been settled on though! The next stage in Among Us is going to be a Henry Stickmin themed location!

We have LOTS of other things planned too, we just need to prioritize and organize all our plans. Stay tuned!

Innersloth I love among us like love it but I want to make some updates I wanted to share first I want it to be more realistic a bit next I want players to be able to do other tasks so they can help their friends and also I want in the airship when there is a meeting you can sit on the chair's  and also I have been thinking of a new way y how to chat it's called only chat you can talk to the players you want to talk to. Also anybody can drive the space ship like the skeld you can drive it do mira plus and anywhere and also some tools and all players can see their own hands and a new map again it's a school map also I want to add special ccc agents to see if any one in among us is cheating and the new edition is Christmas edition Easter edition new clothes and new roles so it can feel good.now I just want to say I would love if you added my ideas please love number 1 among us lover.

Please can Innersloth bring back renaming and normal chat

can anyone tell me how to update? i dont have the game from steam i downloaded it straight from itch.i

good news: the airship map is released today XD (dont scam us innersloth >:( )

I think you should add a gamemode in among us that is 3-5 players and your all imposters and aliens keep on spawning and you have to kill off all the aliens. That would be very fun and kill distance is the kill with the gun. And you cant kill other players kind of like a team game.

How do you update on Pc?

I want some new game modes like hide and seek and infection. Youtube has lots of good ones. It would also be cool if you could make new roles. There are lots of good ones like the snitch and jester. Also detective and sheriff. YouTube has lots of good ones.

Hello, I’m a fan, and I have a suggestions. I was wondering if it would be possible to add little challenges and if they are completed, then there would be a little accessory or new color in reward. Thank you if you see this. 😃

Hey inersloth! I'm a big among us fan and I have an idea for you. You know how everyone says the mini crewmates are so cute? Well guess what would make them cuter? Imagine being able to put hats and skins on them? Anyway, ik you have a ton of updates so I understand if you don't have time for this one but just throwing it out there!

are you a stan?

Hello Innersloth, I have a question regarding the account system: I would like to know if it will also be used to fight people who debug the game by calling? Because it is a big problem in Among Us, I'll give you an example: When a person on call dies, he scolds the impostor to the person he's playing with, which spoils the game, because when we are on call, we don't speak at all. It is very annoying and makes the game very dull, just like hackers.

I see that here are a lot of games like this.
