Among Us VR Is A Thing Thanks To This Fan Creation
Among Us is an older game that randomly saw a massive surge of popularity this month and that popularity? Well deserved. This "sus" driven adventure is hilariously deceptive and is basically this gen's Monopoly and Halo MP regarding ruined friendships. Currently, it's only available on PC and mobile, but thanks to one fan it's also now a VR experience.
The Among Us VR experience comes by way of a new map creation in VRChat, a popular social experience in VR that allows players to create their own avatars and basically dive all-in on the weirdness that the Internet provides. Sometimes, though, it comes out with gems like this and it surprisingly works!
The VRChat creation even features the dreaded Admin card swipe, which only adds to the true-to-source nature of this particular fan nod. Players can even equip toons that look like those adorable jelly bean astronauts while murdering all of those crewmates like souls aren't a thing.
Don't have a VR headset? No problem! You can actually play VRChat outside of virtual reality and given that this map is 3D-rendered, it'll still be a unique spin on Among Us even when playing on a simple PC monitor. Even better? VRChat is free, so download it on Steam, VR headset or not, and get to betraying.
Better late than never, but we recently reviewed Among Us after the indie title escaped our radar at launch. It's surprisingly addictive and even more fun with friends. You can check out our full review here, with a small blurb below:
Developed by InnerSloth, the foundation of Among Us is simple: a social deduction game where a player is either a crewmate or the lone imposter. The imposter must pretend to do the assigned daily tasks in the game while stealthily killing off each crewmate one by one. If a body is discovered, a crewmate can call an Emergency Meeting to have a group chat trying to figure out who the imposter truly is.
Diving into Among Us, I see the charm despite its simplicity, and I can't help but to love the way this game makes me look at everyone as if they are super sus. Among Us is what it is, and unapologetically so. This year may be bad, but having fun experiences definitely isn't; Among Us provides a much-needed reprieve from reality without taking itself too seriously.
