Given the enormous amount of murder that takes place in the average Among Us game, I can’t say its spaceships are particularly child-friendly, but apparently that’s not enough to stop some crewmates from bringing their kids to work. One of the cosmetic items in Among Us is a mini crewmate pet that follows you around until you die – and will then sit sadly on the floor while you fly around as a ghost. As a result, some games end up littered with orphaned children after their parents have been murdered: but one Among Us fan decided to get creative and imagine a better future.
“I hate to admit how long this took me to make”, Ahmad Creations said in a hugely popular Reddit post sharing the video. Naturally, I asked how long it took to make.
“Around three days in total – I’m still new to making art and editing videos in general so I hope I’ll cut my time in the future”, Ahmad Creations told me. “I’ve been a Unity game developer for the last five years and I’m currently going into YouTube… I needed something unique and trendy to start with so I made the adoption thingy.”
It’s worth noting the mini crewmate cosmetic costs $2.99 (£2.31) and isn’t included in the base game, so it’s unlikely we’ll see this introduced as an actual mechanic – although it would make paying that couple of quid a little more tempting. The idea and the amount of effort that went into making the mechanic and video is pretty impressive, however, and I’m just glad to see a happy ending for some of those kids.
