Innerloth’s Among us was easily one of the biggest surprises of 2020. While the game was originally released in 2018, it got a lot of attention last year when it became a breakout hit on Twitch. Suddenly, the game found the common appeal that had avoided it, and its developer was caught off guard by the newfound attention. With a new year ahead, InnerSloth is working hard to maintain this interest, and it looks like there are surprises that the company has not yet discussed publicly. In a new interview with GameSpots Lucy James, InnerSloth’s Victoria Tran briefly touched on the prospect of future revelations.
“We have some secrets in the works that I unfortunately can not talk about,”
It does not give fans much to continue, but the prospect of more content should prove to be quite exciting. InnerSloth was obviously unprepared for the increased interest in the game and has changed quite a few plans as a result.
“It was scary and amazing and wonderful, and there is really no English word that makes people understand how surprising and amazing it was,” Tran said.
When it comes to success stories in gaming, it’s hard to compare Among us. While many games have found increased interest long after their first release, it often happens when it is too late for a developer to take advantage. That has not been the case Among usand InnerSloth seems to be in a good position to capitalize. The developer has added a number of future updates to the game, including a new airship map.
As with any online game, maintaining interest can be easier said than done. Players can be notoriously unstable and often move on to the next big thing despite a developer’s best efforts. It remains to be seen whether that will be the case Among us, but with InnerSloth hard at work looking for new ways to improve the game, it seems likely that its success will continue for the foreseeable future.
Among us is currently available on iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch and PC. You can check out our entire previous coverage of the game right here.
