Deceit is a game that’s not as popular as Among Us. However, it does deliver the same ounce of fear and thrills as it. Deceit is a game that aims to test your critical thinking skills. It’s an action-centric first-person shooter game with electrifying multiplayer gameplay.
Like Among Us, Deceit features two specific groups that you can play as. The first group involves the innocents, who must stay alerted and make their way to safety. The second group consists of the infected, who have been affected by a deadly virus and must take down the innocents.
Deceit challenges you to pick your moves wisely and swiftly, like Among Us does. Every decision you make will allow your teammates to formulate strategies and develop information about everyone involved, including the opposing players. The game offers many objectives for players to complete and a system to vote out players who exhibit suspicious qualities.
Town of Salem
Town of Salem is another game that’s rooted in mystery and suspense. It offers the same murder mystery aesthetic that would appeal to Among Us fans, while also offering more ways to play. It’s also a title seeping in historical influences concerning witches and mob hysteria.
7 to 15 players can play together in this game. You’ll each be placed into one of five groups which are Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists, and Neutrals. If you’re listed as a Town member, then you’ll need to track down members of four other groups. As for the Mafia and other killers, you’re tasked with killing the townspeople by night, without getting caught.
Like Among Us, the game doesn’t tell players in the Town group who the killer is. It’s up to you to figure that out for yourself. This not only encourages strategic thinking on the players’ part but also raises the stakes immensely, as you’ll need to watch your back around every corner.
Besides gameplay, Town of Salem gives players access to incredible customization features. This gives them the chance to make their characters stand out from their friends or rivals. This game offers more in terms of maps and death animations than Among Us.
If you’re looking for something that’s more of the same but with a fresh coat of paint, plat Town of Salem.
Werewolf Online is a game that follows suit with the murder mystery theme in Among Us. In the game, you will witness different gaming elements from collecting resources to defending your village against evil forces.
In the village you will encounter many liars. These liars will challenge your intellect and sharp detective skills. It’s up to you to bring them to justice and call out their bluffs. This game is more simple regarding gameplay and can be played for free via an Android device.
Among Us fans can download the game via the Google Play Store. Will you be the last standing team or will the liars end up coming out on top?
Secret Neighbor is a spin-off to the well-beloved indie game Hello Neighbor. The game tasks you with sneaking into the neighbor’s home to find keys to his basement. The neighbor is one of your friends in disguise whose goal is to thwart your plans and trap you.
Like Among Us, Secret Neighbor’s gameplay and premise are simple. The game’s tension gradually grows as each round concludes. Players can only rely on their sharp interrogative skills and quick movements to gain a victory. The game also allows you to explore the maps it offers before you dive into a round. This allows you to form plans and strategies before playing.
Secret Neighbor’s gameplay will scare and excite you.
Unfortunate Spaceman is another game wreaking in deception and offers spaceship-traversing gameplay. The themes of betrayal and murder are also present in this game. It can be played with up to 16 players and consists of you completing tasks to reach the endgame.
Like Among Us, one of you will take the role of a cold-hearted killer. This murderer must take out all their fellow spacemen before they complete their tasks. Unlike Among Us, the killer can stake on the form of other players, adding more suspense and intensity to the gameplay.
This game also offers a story and survival mode. Each mode has you battle a swarm of enemies. It’s also free to play for those wondering.
Enemy on Board
Enemy on Board is another free-to-play Among Us clone with simple but interesting gameplay. This game’s standard mode offers a six vs two PVP experience. The six players will play as normal crew members who must fix a set of generators to restore power and make a call for help. The two remaining players will take on the role of the aliens.
The aliens are tasked with destroying and murdering all six crew members. Like Among Us, they must avoid being caught in the act, otherwise, it’s lights out. This game offers a different spin on the imposter-seeking gameplay formula. In Enemy on Board, crew members can arm themselves with weapons. They can use these weapons to take down suspicious crew members.
There’s also a comeback mechanic implemented into this game. If players can hold their ground for a long duration of time, they can transform into a powerful Cyborg and engage the suspected aliens in combat. The Aliens also have unique perks they can rely on that can help “even” the playing field.
Hidden Agenda is a serious thriller game that captures the same principles of Among Us well. This game will have players tackle an exhilarating crime case that’s played entirely on the protagonist’s phone. While that may not sound swell, Hidden Agenda delivers a wonderful story and enticing gameplay.
Hidden Agenda follows Jonathan Finn, whose been falsely accused of committing multiple murder crimes over the years. Before he’s sentenced to death, Jonathan confronts District Attorney Felicity Graves. He tells her that he’s only taking the fall and is not responsible for the murder crimes.
This leads to a race against time when players must help Jonathan prove his innocence by helping the government track down the infamous killer. The plot provides many twists and turns. It will force players to think about the evidence they stumble upon.
The gameplay is a bit strange for a PS4 game. This is because you’ll need to have access to a cell phone in order to play the game. It’s a bit underwhelming but helps players immerse themselves in the crime being presented. You’ll be using your touchscreens to select choices for specific events that impact the character’s immediate actions and their conclusions.
There are also about 20 events spread throughout the game, so if you want to continue playing, I’d suggest charging your phone up.
Hidden in Plain Sight
Hidden in Plain Sight is a local multiplayer game where you don’t want to draw anyone’s attention. Like Among Us, this game’s full of great tension and suspense. The game’s controls are simple requiring fewer actions for the player to perform. You’ll want to deceive and weave past your friends if you hope to come out on top.
In this game, players have to accomplish a set of goals without drawing attention to themselves. You’ll control a character that looks similar to everyone else, and you’re given a task and a way to eliminate opponents. Unlike Among Us, you’re playing as both a crewmate and imposter.
It’s also a multiplayer-only title with no online mode or single-player content. While it’s unfortunate that you don’t have ways of connecting with friends, the game offers a few game modes to suffice. Death Race is a mode where you must race to the finish line before others. As you run you can also eliminate opponents with a gun. However, you only have one bullet, so it’s important to make it count.
Despite lacking some features, Hidden in Plain Sight delivers the same thought-provoking and tense gameplay Among Us fans will adore.
So there we have it, our 8 video game picks to keep you busy after playing Among Us.
