Among Us was a very unknown deception game before 2018. The game eventually got to their first 1,000 downloads but it was 2 years before it blew up! During the covid-19 quarantine in 2020, this game became popular thanks to Twitch, Tiktok, and celebrities jumping on board to play. From there, the growth skyrocketed now boasting more than 85 million downloads. The game takes 4 to 10 players on a spaceship where they survive or successfully deceive others in order to survive. The player that gets the most votes as an imposter will be booted off regardless of their real identity. The Among Us fan shop is almost always out of stock due to their growing popularity…so it’ll be a while before I get my hand on a plushie. Let’s draw an Among Us character in the meanwhile! It’s super easy, and we break it down step by step.

✏️ TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

  • How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
  • Sketching Pencil
  • Polymer Eraser
  • Outline Marker
  • Coloring Tools

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Printing & Saving Info:

  • The instant print button is in the upper left-hand corner. If you don’t see the instant print icon on mobile, toggle your mobile browser to “Desktop View” and you should be able to see it. Turning on “Desktop View” is on the upper right of your browser screen under “Settings.”
  • To decrease load time we put large images on different sub-pages. Use the navigation on the top and bottom of the galleries to toggle.
  • Fits both A4 sizes and fits US standard letter sizes but preview your specs just in case.
  • Want to save a file for later? Just hit the print button and choose instead of printing, select Save As “PDF” in the drop-down selection, and done! (Your screen and selection might look a little different.)

Among Us Trivia For Kids

  • The game became so popular, there are no memes all over Twitch and Tiktok!
  • The game was based on a classic concept – an investigative, social deduction game where you can use your logic to solve which one of your friends isn’t a friend at all. Similar to the concept of Mafia/Werewolf.
  • Ghosts can only talk to other ghosts and you can only become a ghost after someone takes you down as a “sus.” Imposters use vents to sneak up on their crew.
  • There are two ways to win: complete all the tasks or discover the identities of the imposters.
  • You can host an emergency meeting if you think you know who the imposter on the ship is amongst the crew.
  • There was an original Among Us 2 planned but the concept was scrapped, thankfully the team decided to expand on the original Among Us with more characters and features.
  • You are not allowed to sabotage other players in weapons but can in Reactor, Comm, and O2.
  • Fixing wiring is the most common task to come up in the game.
  • A ghost can do many things including chatting with other ghosts, fly outside the ship, tasks, but they can’t stop a sabotage.
  • There are 4 tasks in electricidal: Download data, calibrate distributor, divert power, and fix wiring.
