The popular online multiplayer game Among Us was developed by the US indie studio Innersloth and has been available since June 15, 2018. Among Us can be played on Android, iOS, Windows, Nintendo Switch, Playstation and Xbox platforms. The PC version is listed on Steam with a price of 3,99 euros. Since the beginning of July 2020, the game has seen strong growth in users and is particularly popular among Twitch streamers.

Founded by renowned game designer Jesse Schell, Studio Schell Games has been working on porting Among Us to virtual reality for some time. The studio is supported by Robot Teddy and Innersloth himself. An exact release date is not yet known, but registration for the beta test is already underway.

Real body language in Among Us VR

In the VR version of Among Us, players directly embody their avatar and do not perceive it from a two-dimensional perspective as usual. This opens up many exciting possibilities, such as real body language and gestures, which make the game even more immersive. An official tweet from February 2022 shows a video of two players waving and then high-fiving. However, the actual game principle remains unchanged: among the crew of a spaceship are saboteurs who try to murder the other players undetected. Furthermore, the game's map is slightly adapted for the three-dimensional space and, for example, narrow passages and corridors are made wider.

Among Us VR is being developed for Meta Quest, PC VR and PlayStation VR. Crossplay with the 2D version of the game will most likely not be possible. Registration for the beta has already started and is run via the Antidote playtesting platform. An exact start date has not yet been announced. The final realization of the game for Meta Quest and Steam VR can be expected during the 2022 holiday season.
