Fortnite Impostor Mode is identical to Among Us, it is frustrating the developers of the game as it seems to be a copy of their own game.
The Fornite Imposter mode introduced allows a maximum of 10 players, eight Agents maintaining The Bridge, and two Impostors out to overtake it. It seems identical to Among Us where agents are assigned a number of objectives to complete while the Impostors have to blend in as much as possible. When the Agents complete their assignments or vote out the other Impostors they win, or the Imposters win by eliminating all of the Agents, whether by killing them or by deceiving other Agents into voting them out.
See sounds familiar, this is not going well with some of the Among Us developers. Victoria Tran, Community manager, regretted the fact that Epic did not reach out to InnerSloth for a potential collaboration.
She said, “It would’ve been really, really cool to collaborate. Like game mechanics fine, those shouldn’t be gatekept, but at the very least even different themes or terminology makes things more interesting?”
In a tweet, she said, “Everything in the world was already feeling insurmountable, so this was just another fun reminder of how tiny we all really are.”
Programmer Gary Porter felt the devs community at InnerSloth is not happy with Fortnite’s Impostors mode. Perhaps in the future, we get to see more awareness amongst major game studios when they make content based on much smaller game studios.
He said he can only imagine both studios benefiting from even a surface-level collaboration, and it sounds like InnerSloth would’ve been more than welcoming of just such a thing.
