Among Us: InnerSloth’s Among Us had a year to remember. The game was launched in 2018 and made it to the top charts in the latter half of 2020 after some streamers played the game.
Just when Fall Guys was moving towards the indie game of the year, Among Us made the fastest jump to snatch “the crown” from Fall Guys. The game with the impostors took over the streaming platforms like Twitch and Youtube and the audience saw one of the best collaborations from the gaming world, and slowly into the world of beauty gurus with leading lifestyle and beauty YouTubers playing the game with their friends and garnering engagements.
Adding to the number of feathers Among Us already had in its hat, the game has also won two awards at the Game Awards 2020 and is now playable on Nintendo Switch… More players to engage the game with.
According to SuperData, an analytical site, Among Us has hit as many as Half-Billion players in November 2020. The site has crowned the game as “by far the most popular game ever in terms of monthly players.” Among Us is placed on the third position after Minecraft (600 million) and PUBG (636 MIllion).
According to SuperData, PC players make up for only 3% of the game’s total player base but generates 64% of revenue. Most of the revenue comes from PC sales as the game is free for mobile players who amount for a large portion of the players.
