“Among Us” is a 2018 hidden role video game from developer InnerSloth that became a Twitch mainstay in 2020.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to Twitch streamers HasanAbi and Pokimane after they replied to her original tweet, saying that she’d be in.
On Monday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put out a call on Twitter for people to play the explosively popular video game “Among Us” as part of a get out the vote effort, and everyone from Twitch streamer Pokimane to beauty influencer James Charles wanted in.
A tweet from the representative, whose love and knowledge of video games was already known, said “anyone want to play Among Us with me on Twitch to get out the vote? (I’ve never played but it looks like a lot of fun).”
“Among Us” is a four to 10 player hidden role game from developer InnerSloth that you can play online, either with strangers or with friends. At the beginning of each game, you’re assigned a role. “Crewmates” go about tasks like fixing wiring or running medical scans, while “Imposters” try to kill crewmates and not get caught doing so.
