That’s a lot of imposters
Per Verge, the wildly-popular multiplayer game ‘Among Us’ isn’t just making itself a hot commodity amidst the pandemic, but it’s also boosting the sales of gamer chat app Discord. Talk about doing its task.
Over the month of July to September, ‘Among us’ spiked a whopping 650% in users, placing it in 11th place of streaming site Twitch’s most popular games just below Minecraft.
Meanwhile, experts claim that ‘Among Us‘ and Discord’s consecutive user spikes isn’t a coincidence, as more and more people are choosing to go cross-platform to talk to their friends and stream their games while playing the role-playing game.
‘Discord has been hitting a new lifetime high for mobile app downloads every day since September 5th,’ said Apptopia’s Adam Blecker on Discord’s unprecedented growth.
Besides ‘Among Us‘ serving as an addicting game to troll strangers while you’re bored, it just adds to the fact that people are adapting to their lockdown relationships – whether or not they’re doing tasks or killing their friends.
Meanwhile, the creators of ‘Among Us’ have cancelled the game’s planned second instalment to focus on the original title.
