Among Us Animated Series Announced

Variety has revealed that an official Among Us animated series is in production at CBS Eye Animation Productions via a partnership with the game’s developer, Innersloth. Additionally, Owen Dennis, known for his work on Infinity Train, is the creator and an executive producer.

The show will be based on the game’s premise:

“Members of your crew have been replaced by an alien shapeshifter intent on causing confusion, sabotaging the ship, and killing everyone. Root out the ‘Impostor’ or fall victim to its murderous designs.”

Titmouse will be the animation studio for this project, with Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, and Ben Kalina serving as additional executive producers. Further, Forest Willard, Marcus Bromander, and Carl Neisser from Innersloth will also executively produce the project. Lastly, it’s worth noting that “the show is covered by The Animation Guild rather than the WGA.”

Perhaps there was a time when Among Us needed an introduction, but I’m not sure that time is now. The game has gained wide success for its accessible systems yet deep strategy. During gameplay, players will join others on a map filled with tasks. These tasks typically revolve around timed events that prove you are trying to help your crew. However, among these workers is someone looking to sabotage the mission and kill everyone without getting caught.

The goal of the game is to get away with murder. During rounds, someone in the group is a bad guy, but they have to try to keep that a secret. As people die, meetings can be called where the players discuss the events and try to choose the killer. It’s very much like Werewolf, but some unique elements make it rather addictive and fun. Additionally, players can customize their characters with accessories, which everyone seems to love.
