Among Us is developed and published by Innersloth. It first released on iOS, Android, and Windows in 2018, with cross-platform play between all the platforms. The game was also ported for the Nintendo Switch late last year, and it's coming to Xbox consoles sometime in 2021.
The game exploded in popularity in 2020 and became one of the year's most downloaded mobile games. Notably, US Congresspeople Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar live-streamed the video game on Twitch as part of an unusual voter outreach event, and it was a massive, viral success.
