Remember that in the “apartment” Among Us users (from 4 to 10 people) take on the role of a crew member of a spaceship or plane. The task is to find out and throw overboard the bloodthirsty imposters who have wormed their way into the team.

In Among Us VR, the concept is retained but adapted for VR: first-person perspective, three-dimensional environment, immersive effect with hints of horror, built-in spatial voice chat (there’s also text chat with a range of templates).

    Another undeniable advantage of the VR version is the ability to poke other players with your finger.

The main disadvantage of the VR version of Among Us compared to the “flat” one is the lack of features (gameplay settings, experience system, advanced roles) and content (there is only one map, little “cosmetics”). However, both are already in the works.

Ordinary users turned out to be pickier: they still seemed unacceptable existing errorsProblems and oddities (if the session owner quits, he kicks everyone out) with servers, as well as inconvenient management.
