The popular video game Among Us once had a different look than the one we see now.

What’s going on?

Innersloth shared what Among Us looked like when the developers were still making it in 2018.

  • The tweet read, “honestly everything still feels super unreal haha, definitely wanna keep sharing more dev stories with you here :).”

How popular is the game?

Among Us was one of the more popular video games of 2020. The game didn’t really pick up steam until the end of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.

  • Data from Nielsen’s SuperData found Among Us had about 500 million users in November 2020, which means the game had the most monthly players for a mobile video game ever, according to The Verge.

However, Among Us developer Innersloth said the game hasn’t received any new features or updates in quite some time because of behind-the-scenes work.

As I wrote for the Deseret News, the company said it has four employees who have had to work on the popular game itself rather than new updates.
