⏪ Looking Backwards: An Among Us VR in 2023 Recap

⏪ Looking Backwards: An Among Us VR in 2023 Recap

Fun fact, Beans — Today, January 31, is “Backwards Day.” And while we intend to further celebrate by exclusively running backwards, we wanted to also use the day to look backwards at last year’s accomplishments!

New Map, New Features, New Crewmates!

From 🛠️ Custom Lobby Settings and 🦺 Player Safety Features to the brand new 🌋 Polus Point map and a closet full of new 🧢 Hats and Hat Packs 👑 — we launched a number of updates and additions to expand the game last year. 

Not only that, but we were thrilled to be able to launch Among Us VR to two new platforms — PlayStation VR2® and PICO — bringing in new waves of Crewmates to join into the fray. (We’re going to overlook the fact that this also brought in new Impostors… cause, let’s face it, we kinda love that, too! 👀)

New Accolades for the Awards Cabinet 🏆

We also got to flex a little, and we’re just a little proud of it. 🎉 Not to brag or anything… but Among Us VR earned numerous awards and nominations in 2023, including:

  • The Unity Awards — Best AR/VR Game Winner
  • The VR Awards — VR Game of the Year Finalist
  • The Auggie Awards — Best Game or Toy Winner
  • The NYX Game Awards — Meta Quest VR Game – Multiplayer Grand Winner
  • The Webby People’s Voice Awards — Best Social Gaming Experience Winner
  • The Webby Awards — Best Social Gaming Experience Winner
  • The D.I.C.E. Awards — Immersive Reality Technical Achievement Finalist

We’re incredibly honored to have received all of this recognition and are so grateful for everyone who has believed and continues to support us! 🥺 We’re doing it, Beans!
