Sleeper hit Among Us is finally coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 later this year and will include exclusive Ratchet costume and Clank pet.
In addition to this exciting news, Victoria Tran, community director at Inner Sloth, explained in their PlayStation Blog reveal where the inspiration for Among Us came from.
Our game was partially based off a game one of our cofounders, Marcus, used to play as a kid where you’d draw role cards and roam a house aimlessly while another person secretly “killed” players by drawing a finger across their neck. He especially loved the idea of someone trying to blend in with everyone. That core idea is still present in Among Us, but we wanted to alleviate the need for an interesting house layout and boring wandering, so we made it space themed and added tasks. The game underwent a ton of design changes to get it to where it’s at, and we’re happy it has resonated with so many of you.PlayStation Blog
The same post also had a heartwarming statement about how Inner Sloth has reacted to the overwhelming response from the community.
There is a lot we could say about Among Us, but truly the best part has been seeing the community gather around our indie title. From doodles to entire live action movies and countless streams, we’ve seen a lot of love pouring out for our little space beans. Thank you. We hope we can continue giving back that same energy! There are lots of updates we have planned for Among Us, and we can’t wait to take our PlayStation community along for the ride.PlayStation Blog
Currently Among Us is available for Switch, PC, iOS, Android and Xbox One.
