While indie developers Innerloth launched their online multiplayer online game "Among Us" on Android phones in June 2018, they saw an average of 30-50 players. Little did they know it was played by 3.8 million players worldwide two years later during the COVID-19 disaster. As of August 31, 2020, the game has a user growth curve that is not the type of mobile game you would like.

The first user growth was due to the creation of online content from South Korea and Brazil. Victoria Tran, USA Public Director, posted a picture on Twitter showing the sudden increase in players in the USA with the PC version of the game, released for free by Epic Games Store. He also mentioned other factors that have contributed to growth such as long weekends and players exploring the game at other stadiums.

The game was released in 2018 with a little general attention but received a huge increase in popularity by 2020 with many popular Twitch streamers and YouTubers playing the game. Among Us 2 was canceled earlier, with the team focusing on improving. The game has been inspired by the internet meme and has reached out to many fans.

Representatives of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar streamed the game to encourage people to vote in the 2020 US presidential election, along with a few other prominent streamers such as Pokimane and Hasan "Piker" Piker, attracting more than 700,000 viewers simultaneously on Twitch. The game has become so commonplace that YouTubers have been sharing pictures of the game everywhere, with Among Us Twitch having a stable audience of over 100,000 at any one time (at the time of writing 191,000 people were watching Twitch in the US) and trying. to set up friend groups to play. A few Twitch streamers play the game live for people who enjoy playing, and a few more streamers do more.

The game has a limited audience, but Innerloth continues to update the game with new features based on player feedback to make it even better. If you want to play the game a certain way, you will find 4-10 people in a pool of 4 million players and prefer simple settings to the other 100 players. As these numbers rise from 10,000 to 100,000 or even one million, the prospect of finding a game and playing it under the right conditions becomes even easier.

Major streamers at the top of the game categories should benefit the most because they tend to manage 95% of the content on Twitch. The Among Us is a multiplayer PC and mobile game that has grown in popularity and is now one of the 2020 video games. The game was released in June 2018 but became the only song when video game broadcasters saw on Amazon's Twitch service that it was a full-blown epidemic game and began to release it from the competition.

Let’s take a look at how the Among Us worked and why it was one of the most popular games in 2018. Among Us was one of the video games of the year, but many people didn't realize that its sudden popularity sounded like the kind of hype you often see during the release of a video game. The game left only the top five in Apple's App Store in the US on September 1, and has so far seen more than 15.8 million installs on the App Store and Google Play, SensorPower said.

Among Us is a multiplayer mystery game released in November 2018 on PC, Steam, and mobile. It is a digital transformation of Mafia: Deception, a game in which players identify traitors among themselves. The intellectual capacity of the Games is not the only reason for its success.

Within a month, the five indie games of 2018 broke Peak Player Club’s record at Steam. Among Us is an online community-based online payment game developed and published by the American game studio Innerloth. The game was released in June 2018 on iOS and Android devices and November 2018 for Windows and offers cross-platform games on both platforms.

According to SteamCharts, 388,385 people have played with us, more than 5% of all indie games released since its launch of Steam in 2018. And that doesn’t work for those who play on iOS and Android, because those are the ones I leave the most. on game servers that bind under pressure. Furthermore, it seems that people do not even look at us.

Another sign that the US is reaching a high level of popularity is that people are starting to get angry with us. What started as a bizarre public money laundering game from an indie studio has become very popular with millions of gamers. People are fed up with the US, which seems to be out of line with the way many players think about sports.

With the new blimp map update coming out, the hype around the game seems to be very high. If you are not already in the transition to multiplayer gaming styles, you may be wondering what the US: Ruckus is all about. It has become one of the most amazing online games in the world since its launch more than two years ago.

With the start of the 2020 epidemic and it looks like it will continue for another few months, many players are looking for exciting and new games to fill their time.

The sudden increase in the popularity of indie games does not last long, and the game base continues to deteriorate. Daria investigates how the little game that once was a global phenomenon has been forgotten. To understand the decline of the indie game, it is important to understand its sudden increase in thunder.
