AMONG US with HPN Friends

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

You can get it for free(with in-App purchases - no ads and lil 'pets' for your avatar) on Android/iOS or buy it outright from Steam.

Check it out:



Among Us is a werewolf/Mafia-like game where 4-10 people are loaded into a small environment. But each round is generally pretty fast-paced and can be finished within a matter of a few minutes.

There are two factions: Crewmates and Imposters. All members roam the environment and each participant can call a one-time Emergency Meeting via in-game button where they can chat/discuss who they saw together, where, when, etc. to piece things together and figure out who the Impostors are and vote them out.

Crewmates want to be visible to others and complete tasks to save the crew. Once all crew tasks are complete or the imposters are voted out, the crew will win.

Imposters want to roam around and fake doing tasks while they secretly and sneakily murder Crewmates and sow discord. They can quick travel via vents and also sabotage the environment in different ways to their advantage.

You can host groups, join random groups, or set up private groups with a code you give just to friends. Each round can usually wrap within 3-10 minutes depending on people’s play styles/strategies.

The idea is that you DO NOT communicate with each other outside of the brief Emergency Meeting time the game provides you.

If y’all want to try it out sometime I’m totally down. We can set up stuff in this thread!

Here's a discord if anyone wants to setup stuff or chat about games there: https://discord.gg/cAKT6C9

I have a voicechat channel I can send individual invites too if any of y'all get into it and are interested in using that just lmk.

Hey Stormi! The room went down because of inactivity. I'll make another.

Y'all come by for a quick round and see if you like it!

LTAQ new code, public room for other Among Us randos as well so it doesn't get shut down for inactivity.

I can definitely organize this with my discord's voicechat channel and would definitely be down to stream my perspective and the voicechat audio (though other players wouldn't be able to watch it while playing or else they'd be sniping my identity).

It's really fun to watch and play for a few a good few hours of fun on some night if y'all are ever down. It works best with a full lobby of 10 people but is still fun with 8. Balancing can get a bit dicey for less than 8 people though cause things can move quickly.

It's on iOS and Android for free and for $5 USD on Steam (which controls so much better). I also figured out a way to get it running on Mac OS X 10.15 Catalina with an app called PlayOnMac. I have an extra Steam Key and just the game files in general so if anyone's interested seriously just hmu

Geoff I do still have that unclaimed Steam key but I think something is up with Steam’s servers rn cause when I log on I keep getting an error? I’ll send it over to you later for sure.

They also made an announcement for Among Us 2 beginning development so we might see it available in like 18-24 months. They said they’ll keep Among Us vanilla as an option while adding additonal role options for people to explore, which means probably bigger group allowances too!

I’m gonna go ahead and make this show up in a few vanity searches: wendy, lordofdiapers, palmer, VHB, struttin’ evil mushroom, john plainman, marta, Marza, Casimir, werd, new blood, fuckles, ecto

Also just so y’all know this does work across platforms, so people playing on their phones can join the same game as people playing via Steam.

I usually stream pretty late (starting at 10:30–11pm eastern US time), but I’ll (hopefully) start having Sun/Mon off consistently through November so I’d be down for something during the day/evening during those days.

So far we have 6 that might be interested. Anyone? Anyone?

if you use iphone, how would it work - would you need to also be using discord on your phone or just get it on your computer separately

Best way would be to use discord separately on a computer so you can hop into the voice chat channel. You can give my discord link (in the OP) to anyone who is interested in playing and we can use that to set up games outside of the board/thread if need be.

Whenever I stream this I'll probably be able to cobble together a few of my regular twitch viewers to fill in the gaps as well so we reach a full group of 10 if y'all are okay with that. I'm thinking of playing this for a bit tonight and maybe tomorrow night if y'all are down.

I'll def bump this thread whenever I go live with it.

Nice! Yeah if I can actually pull 10 people together from here or from here/twitch then I’ll definitely play this for the next few weeks at least.

If anyone is down to play tonight lmk!
