Hey Everyone! Apologies for the radio silence! We are sure you all know a lot is going on in the world, so we hope all of you are well and safe.

The day has finally come where our Among Us DLC maps MIRA HQ and Polus are free! That means anyone and everyone can host on all three maps! The hats and skins associated with the maps were difficult to remove (“fun” behind-the-scenes with Steam and Mobile platforms is really what’s up) so we’ve made them purchasable as normal skin DLCs!
We also added a bunch more free hats for players to choose from! As well an update to the Crewmate Pet DLCs with the addition of a Crewmate Hat! That’s it for now, we’re still doing what we can for bug fixes. We hope you enjoy this update!

Hope you all are excited for a merchandise update as well! Whoot whoot!
Merchandise was delayed for several months but is slowly but surely getting back on track! Our first merchandise release will consist of tshirts, a tote bag, and a Crewmate plush... Read more

Local multiplayer works by having everyone join the same wifi. Each player uses their own device. We also have a F2P mobile version with ads and fewer cosmetics so people don't *have* to buy the PC version. There is crossplay between PC and mobile.

Sorry we haven't been very good about sharing information through Steam, but we're happy to announce that we are working on two new maps!

The new MIRA Headquarters map (outlined above) is set to release in under two weeks! The second doesn't have a name or release date yet, but PuffballsUnited has been streaming all work on it, so you can watch that here: https://www.twitch.tv/puffballs_united/videos

Each new map comes with some new tasks and strategies and will cost 4 USD. Each map takes months to create, so we're really excited and hope you all like them!

Sorry, I don't plan on it. I tried to make a native Linux version previously, but I couldn't get it to work. I have heard of some mixed successes with Wine, though.

New Colors: Cyan and Lime We spent a little extra time on this update to add some extra things we've been interested in for a while now. Many people have noticed the wallet picture with Cyan, who was removed before we released the game. But we brought them back with a new color Lime! Green might have gotten a little darker as well. :)



Stats Tracking We also thought players might be interested in game stats. So you can find that on the main menu now. This is kind of a work in progress, we'll be listening to feedback on stats to add or remove.

In-Game Kicks and Bans We're removing them. We get consistent complaints about hosts abusing kick/ban during games because they find the impostor or are discovered as impostor and don't want to lose. We tried reducing the number of kicks per game, but it usually only takes one to ruin a ... Read more

Hey all!

Another quick release to fix some of the most annoying bugs!
  • Added ghost chat all the time
  • Added limit to kicks/bans during the game. Lobby is still infinite.
  • Fix chat not working if game starts while virtual keyboard is open
  • Fix random arrow pointing to weapons
  • Improve profanity filter
  • Fix dead host causing voting to tally endlessly
That should be about it this time! Let us know how you like the changes on Twitter or Discord[discord.gg].

Hey all!

We put out a new update yesterday and another quick one today.

Yesterday's was mostly bug fixes. It was supposed to include skins as a surprise, but they were too buggy, so I pulled them out last second. Turns out, I missed a spot so they leaked for mobile users, so today's update added skins!



Per the fixes and other gameplay changes, here's a list with most of them and some notes:
  • Medscan is no longer a common task. Fix Wires is now a common task.
    • This should really help the issue of players swarming medscan to determine who is safe. Common tasks were meant to give impostors places where they could likely find crewmates. We never intended for them to become an easy way to exclude the impostor. But we still like medscan, so making it a long task should red...

Scanner was still a bit op even after we let impostor use it because people were watching the taskbar (which didn't go up when Impostor used scanner), so we made scanner a long task and put fix wires in common instead. Impostor can still use it when it comes up in their fake tasks, and since it comes up less often, it should be more fair.

If you're having troubles dealing with the medscan task, close the medbay door and/or start a sabotage. If you don't like it, set common tasks to zero.

Discord integration makes it easy to share game codes. It creates a badge that live updates the game status and launches the game to join a room.

As ImRichSmartAndCool said, it's cheating to voice chat while playing public games. But we highly recommend getting friends in a private room to use voice chat during discussion.

Thanks! We're glad you like it!

Yeah, we aren't that popular in the USA. Sharing with friends or mentioning us on social media or streamers is probably the best way to help that.

Sorry I didn't see this. I thought I had notifications on, but I still haven't gotten any... But I'm glad you fixed it!

Yeah, I find this frustrating and will look into a solution. Thanks for the suggestion.
