The hit party game Among Us has been completely recreated in Overwatch’s Workshop mode thanks to the work of one dedicated player, and the results are impressive, to say the least.
Innersloth’s multiplayer murder-mystery game has become one of the surprise hits of 2020, especially considering the fact it was first released in 2018 and had gotten barely any attention until a few months ago.
Even though it’s over two years old hasn’t seemed to slow it down at all, with more people acting ‘sus’ than ever before this year. For instance, devs from Innersloth revealed recently that it had close to 100 million downloads in 2020 and a good couple million concurrent players on any given day.
All of this hype inspired Korean YouTuber HYAYA (흐야야) to create a fully-functioning version of Among Us in the Overwatch Workshop using the game’s heroes as the crewmembers and imposters.
It wouldn’t be Among Us without the appropriate setting, and the abandoned Horizon Lunar Colony map serves as the perfect backdrop for accusing and framing the people that you once called friends. It also has plenty of vents, which we swear we saw Sombra just disappear into.
They even went to the trouble of remaking most of the simple, yet time-consuming tasks the crew has to complete before being brutally murdered in order to survive.
There’s also a voting screen for your group to determine who lives and who takes a one-way trip out of the airlock every round. To top it all off, a hilarious animation showing the unlucky hero floating off into space plays after they’ve been voted off, with text revealing if they were the imposter or not.
Sadly, HYAYA hasn’t posted a game code for others to try out Among Us in Overwatch just yet, as there still seem to be a few bugs floating around. But this video shows Among Us custom games are possible, so we’d keep our eyes out for a code appearing very soon.
Hopefully, it arrives in time for the Halloween Terror event, which should get going in the next couple of weeks.
Among Us with Overwatch heroes would be a great way to break up Junkenstein’s Revenge matches, and save us the trouble of switching back and forth between windows while waiting in the queue.
