Among Us developer unhappy with Fortnite copying them
By Aron Gerencser August 19, 2021
Among Us developer Innersloth has expressed displeasure following the recent reveal of Fortnite Battle Royale's Impostors mode.
Epic has lifted more than just a core gameplay mechanic from the indie title.
Ever since Among Us exploded in popularity, it has become one of the most extensively memed pieces of media.
The very words 'impostor', 'suspicious and 'sus' gained inherent humorous value.
All of these online jokes also translated to immense tangible success for the game.
This success and popularity also led to a lot of copycats popping up.
These mostly existed as cheap asset flip mobile games, or games that simply transplanted Among Us wholesale into 3D and first person.
Even bigger, more legitimate AAA studious have failed to resist the temptation, by the looks of it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War recently introduced the Double Agent limited-time mode.
However, Epic Games' Impostors mode for Fortnite is a much more blatant ripoff.
Several of the people working on Among Us at Innersloth have expressed dissatisfaction on Twitter.
For what it's worth, Impostors will no longer be available in Fortnite in a few weeks time.
