Among Us has been overrun by a politically-charged spam attack

Last weekend, Among Us was experiencing the highest of highs, with hundreds of thousands of eyes watching US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez face off against both streamers and a fellow politician in the spacey stab 'em up.

Everyone is making their own Among Us crewmate plushies

As readers may know, my lockdown hobby was and is learning to crochet, to the extent that making things out of yarn is now just a thing I do. If you cut me, do I not bleed? No: yards and yards of wool spools out of my veins. Quickly, we must wind it up and pack it back in, or else make a scarf!My digital…

Feature: Please

Please leave me to my mundane jobs in Among Us

For most, Among Us is a game fraught with tension, with lies and deceit. It pops 4-10 players onto a spaceship which needs some tuning up for departure, but one or more folks is a killer bent on murdering everyone. A chat function ensures each game descends into psychological warfare. Bodies are reported, emergency meetings are called, accusations fly. Everyone votes, then someone gets ejected…

Among Us had 1.5 million people playing at the same time this weekend

Uncovering spacetraitors in Among Us has become surprisingly popular, a success which is not unexpected because the game's bad (it's good!) but because it had been out for a year-and-a-half before really being noticed. The developers, Innersloth announced over the weekend that the sneaky party game hit 1.5 million concurrent online players, which is, well, damn. Servers have started to buckle from all the players,…

Among Us has made a lying murderer out of me

The funny thing about the friendship wrecking Among Us, a game where a small group of killers try to undermine and murder the crew of a spaceship, is that it's best played with friends. The wounds cut deeper when you're accused of sabotaging an engine by someone who knows you. The bloody betrayal by a BFF leaves you bereft and baffled. To get the most…
