Quick Chat and A New Look 👀 Among Us May Dev Log
It’s spring time here! That means it’s time to go out and smell the flowers in the MIRA HQ Greenhouse, or if you’re like me – beg for mercy from your allergies. (This visor isn’t blocking any pollen!! WHY!!!)
The team had a lot of fun seeing your reactions to our silly April Fools Horse Mode plus the rancher version of the Seek theme last month. While we’re all done horsing around, the team is getting back to work on some super important tasks. Let’s check it out!
Super Important Tasks
Let’s take a peek at some of the tasks we’ve been working on, starting with our UI/UX specialist, Lucy! She was kind enough to let us peek at her current task, which is a full Quick Chat rework. Here are some fun things you can expect:
- New interface. Say bye bye to the old Radial Menu!
- Refined categories
- More remarks and phrases
- A way to favorite your most used phrases
- More that I won’t spoil
That’s the quick look at how things are going with Quick Chat. We’re really excited to get this update in your hands for an even better (and quicker), chatting experience.
Quick Chat isn’t the only task the team is working on either. As I peeped the vitals pad to make sure the team was adequately hydrated and caffeinated, I was able to get a little update from our Game Designer, Dave!
Dave: “Map 5 is going great! There are a lot of new things that I can’t wait for everyone to see and play with. There might even be some parts of the map that look familiar but are very different…”
And with that, Dave jumped into a vent and got back to work making sure we’re all on the right page for everything going into map 5. Hm. Hope he’s actually an Engineer like he said he was…

Smelling the flowers,
There’s a new Bug Wrangler in Town…
We have a new member on the community team! They’ll be here to help wrangle bugs and answer your questions as our Player Support Specialist! Welcome in, Mike!
Hey there, friends! I’m Mike, the new guy in Player Support here at Innersloth. Hopefully everything goes smoothly for every Crewmate out there, but if you do ever need help, you can rest assured that I’m behind the scenes sorting out a solution. Think of me as a helpful bean always out there. Watching. Lurking…
Ahem. What was I saying? Oh, right. It’s my job to squash bugs and make sure you’re all having a good time, even when you’re being munched by an Impostor. Especially then! If you see me around the community, feel free to say hi! But please be sure to send all requests for support through the Help Center so I can keep track and make sure you get what you need.
Until next time!
Hiya Crewmates! We’re back for another round of fan creations for the fun zone!
First up we have this cute Horse and Mongus by DemonElectro7819.
There’s something special about seeing a happy Horsemate under Crewmate clouds on a green pasture. Great work on your piece, DemonElectro7819!
Next up is a video from AdasAtelier! They re-created the jeep complete with map, Crewmates, and Impostor that our artist Hannako drew for the roadmap in 2022!
I’m pretty sure I heard jaws drop in the studio when I shared this with the team! Great work on bringing this piece to life.
That’s all for this round Crewmates!
Looking for allergy meds,
P.S. Do you know what next month is? 👀 A certain game turns 5 years old! Can’t wait to celebrate with you all!
