In the previous year, social deduction games rose to popularity that allowed the players to enjoy the game among their friends. Among Us is one of those games that let players as a group carry on activities. And there’s also impostor among those players that silently take out the other players. The team members can call an emergency meeting to find out what happened and who’s the impostor. And finishing them after reasoning and statements that players decide on who’s the true culprit. Eliminating the impostor and finishing the tasks. The core gameplay of Among Us inspired many game developers to create a game with a similar atmosphere and blend it with immersive AAA titles. Like the upcoming Dubium by Mumo studio that adapts core elements from Among Us into a unique Sci-Fi universe.
Based in South, Korea, Mumo studios have worked in major titles like Dead to Rights and Black Desert Online. Dubium will be their first major indie title with a total number of 5 players. Now the real question is, will Dubium will be released on Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and Playstation consoles? Read on more to know more about Among Us-inspired social deduction games.
