History

Among Us was cofounder Marcus Bromander’s idea based on a combination of a Mafia-like game he played as a kid and the movie “The Thing”. In the original game, you would draw a role card and roam around a house aimlessly while someone person secretly “killed” players by drawing a finger across someone’s neck. They wanted a way to play this game without needing to find a giant house with an interesting layout.

Originally released for mobile in 2018, local mode only, Among Us was made by only 3 people at the time – Forest, Marcus, and (later on) Amy for additional art. They remained a small team, continually improving the game with new maps, online play, and cosmetics. Among Us was considered “complete” in January 2020, until the game gained worldwide popularity in the summer of 2020 and the team started working on Among Us again. Whenever someone asks how they felt, the answer is and will continue to be: “???SHOCKED?!?!”
