Good thing we clutched that last game, after multiple back-to-back loses. I can sleep now.
The popular, cross-platform, LAN and internet-based social deduction game Among Us is dropping a big update today! They are finally supporting lobbies with upto 15 players. This is a big news to me, as my team at work has 11 members. I know teams that are larger as well, and someone always had to sit out, or had to create two different games.
Along with the update to player count, there are a few other changes that I have noticed on the team stream that Innersloth is hosting at the moment.
Changes that stand out immediately:
- New voting screen.
- Voting animation gets a new look as well (video below)
- Dead bodies look different. Is it the backpack which the beans carry that gives the rectangle appearance?
I got a chance to record the new voting animation as well. I think it’s a welcome change as it significantly improves the time taken to show all the votes, especially important in a lobby that’s sized 15.
Besides these, the team announced support for mobile controllers and a certain new “honk” system on Airship. I am not curious about the mobile controller as I am a desktop player, but I am keen on seeing what the honk system is about. The update drops by 3PM EST, which is 12.30am IST. I am hoping to download the release tomorrow morning the first thing. 🎉
It had been a busy few days at my end.
VALORANT greeted with a pleasant surprise tonight though. There’s a new map! Breeze! I have no clue how old this is, but I am definitely enjoy the new view.
We had a better gun, yes, but I will take that penta.
One of my friends caught that I am on 22nd of Oct release on desktop, when there is a 4th of Nov release for Android. The Android release seems to be a beta channel, when there is no beta on Steam. There used to be a beta channel on Steam, but not anymore. That’s the probably the cause of these bugged lobby situations.
We just had a bugged loggy (or someone was hacking?) where we had two whites. I was
swift and another player was
Siege. I called the meeting, but the reports screen showed a notice that
Siege called the meeting.
I was not seen on the reports screen either!
Mismatched electricity wires on MIRA HQ. This is so bad on my part, lol.
