Among Us is still as popular as ever, but a fan-made version on VR Chat looks even more intense than the original. It brings the same atmosphere and gameplay to life in a 3D world, making the game of cat-and-mouse between imposters and crewmates all the more compelling.

Among Us exploded in popularity earlier this year after being around for more than two years already. It’s become one of the most-viewed games on Twitch, with hundreds of thousands of viewers tuning in each day to watch their favorite streamers engage in a battle of wits.

It has even transcended gaming in the sense that anyone can pick up and play. Earlier this week, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez broke the internet when she played Among Us in a lobby filled with popular streamers including Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani.

It’s not hard to see why so many people love the game. However, a fan-made version on VR Chat looks like an absolute treat. It might even be more intense than the original. The best part is, it’s a fully-immersive 3D recreation.

Jar, a VR developer who created the project, said, “Yes, this is a playable multiplayer game with all the interactive tasks, combat, and even astronaut avatars.”

“You can actually interact with all the tasks using your hands, like connecting wires, pulling levers, and swiping cards!”

Of course, it’s not all about the crewmates and their tasks. Imposters need some love too. Fortunately, it sounds like they’ll be able to do all of their usual shenanigans, which makes the game what it is.

 “As the impostor, [you can] sneak up on people when they aren’t looking behind them,” said Jar. “You can also crawl through the vents and sabotage the ship just like in the original game.”

The trailer only lasts a little more than a minute. Still, it shows everything from crewmates and a well-detailed map to emergency meetings, tasks, kills, vent-sneaking, and of course, players accusing one another in a heated discussion.

All in all, it looks like an absolute blast. It’s a dream come true for many who have longed to see Among Us come to life in a 3D world.

However, the best part is that it’s free-to-play, even for those who don’t have a VR headset. If you’re interested in checking it out, you can download it by following the link here.

Keep in mind, though, that it’s entirely fan-made and not an official InnerSloth product. But it’s still an extraordinary re-creation of Among Us from a developer who knows what they’re doing. It looks like an exciting take on the game we all know and love.
