This simple game grew into an internet hit in 2020, becoming one of the most popular games on the online streaming site Twitch. Although it was originally released in 2018, it wasn't until the past few months that the multiplayer social deduction game exploded in the charts-as of October 1, it had been downloaded over 100 million times, according to its USA -based developer, InnerSloth. The stream lasted more than three hours, with an audience peak of 439,000 viewers, making it one of the top 10 all-time livestreams by an individual broadcaster on Amazon-owned Twitch.

Other politicians have taken to Twitch, most notably Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, both of whom use their channels to rebroadcast rallies and other appearances.

United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently went on an Among Us Twitch stream with the objective of encouraging gamers to go out and vote. No, she was there also to request people to vote in the presidential election.

'Figure out if you want to vote early, mail in, in-person, day of. If a dead body is found, a player can report it, which prompts a group meeting and vote to eliminate a contestant - who spends the rest of the game floating around as a helpful ghost. She recorded and uploaded her shocked reaction, where she happily screamed, "Queen, thank you so much!"
