While we are prohibited from going to school, work, and other social venues, many are yearning for a platform to meet new people. The dating scene has been dead for months as it is difficult to find your soulmate while stuck at home. But some are discovering a new and unique way to virtually find love by turning the video game ‘Among Us’ into a dating game.
What is Among Us?
The video game ‘Among Us’ is where 4-10 players aboard a ship and must complete a variety of tasks. However, 1-3 players are assigned the role of the “Imposter” whose goal is to kill all the other players (crewmates) without getting caught.
When a crewmate thinks they know who the “Imposter” is, they can call an “Emergency Meeting” where they discuss with the other players on who they think the Imposter is. Every time there is a meeting all players vote on who they think is the Imposter, and the player with the most votes gets ejected from the ship. If all the Imposters are ejected, the crewmates win, but if the Imposter(s) are able to kill the majority of the crewmates, then the Imposter(s) wins.
Though the main goal of the game is to either kill or not be killed, many are playing the game with unconventional goals.
Among Us Love Stories
In ‘Among Us’ people play against real people, leading to the possibilities of making new friends and finding love.
One TikTok user went viral after posting a video where she and another ‘Among Us’ player became allies on the game when they changed their screen names to Sharkboy and Lava Girl. After playing multiple games with Sharkboy, Lava Girl decided to ask for Sharkboy’s Instagram. Later, the two lovebirds Facetimed each other and had great conversations.
Eventually, Sharkboy and Lava Girl met in person and went on a date – they almost even kissed.
Reply to @joselynem47 We have officially met up y’all @sadboiimarrzz
For those that didn’t go on our live yes me and Sharkboy have met lol @sadboiimarrzz
For everyone who was asking to kiss in the live 😂
Sadly, this love story came to an end as both had busy schedules and little time for a romantic relationship.
Reply to @nashh.716 Sorry guys :/
Like Sharkboy and LavaGirl, other ‘Among Us’ players were successful in connecting with their crush outside of the game such as this user.
Even though most of the relationships seem to have an expiration date, this player had a lasting fairytale relationship with an ‘Among Us’ user as they got married and even had a baby – but their relationship was strictly virtual.
Love Stories That Did Not Have a Happy Ending
However, not all ‘Among Us’ love stories go as hoped.
An ‘Among Us’ player (Homelander) developed a crush for another player (Jane), but when he asked her out on a date, she revealed that she is only 13.
Although Jane was underage, the two kept playing together, and Jane even refused to kill Homelander when she was the Imposter, but he ejected her off the ship because she was still 13.
Jane tried to shoot her shot one last time with Homelander, but Homelander ejected her off the ship again.
When Homelander’s and Jane’s story came to an end, Homelander did not give up on love as he found a new crush – Ashley. However, when he FaceTimed Ashley, he found out that he was catfished.
Other ‘Among Us’ TikToks
Some may be using ‘Among Us’ to find love, but others are creating new ways to use the game such as making the characters go along with popular trends.
Others are going viral for creating hilarious reenactments of typical ‘Among Us’ scenarios.
Some are looking to TikTok for new tricks on mastering the game.
TikTok has caused ‘Among Us’ to skyrocket as many more people are playing the game and trying to recreate the videos that have seen on their ‘For You Page’ whether it be comedy or love inspired videos.
