About the game:
The game assigns players either role – a crewmate or an imposter. Both the roles have to complete different tasks.
The imposters kill the crewmates. Crewmates complete tasks and try to vote out the imposters.
It is, however, a silent game. Only after a dead body is discovered is there a discussion.
In the game’s newest Airship map, you can team up with your friends. The good news is that they don’t all have to be playing on a computer.
Cross-platform multiplayer is available in the game, allowing players to play together on Android, iOS, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Innersloth released this game in 2018. But, it could not gain players. Later in 2020, streamers made this game popular.
