Among Us: Crewmate or Impostor?

An open evening with the AG Game Studies and Among Us. Friday, 18th of June, 6 to 8 p.m.

Join the Crew!


Even though you might not have heard about it yet, Game Studies are among us. This is why the AG Game Studies invites you to join us on a playful evening! Let’s find out what Game Studies are and discuss whether this field of research can be considered a “crewmate” or an “imposter” within academia.

We will start off the event by playing the game “Among Us” together and will continue with introducing basic approaches to the interdisciplinary field of Game Studies as well as basic concepts for videogame analysis specifically.

If you want to learn more about Game Studies and the activities, goals and interests of our research group, feel free to join us! Our event is open to every student, phd candidate or post-doc who is interested in the academic study of (video)games.


18th June, 2021 on Discord, 6-8 p.m.

Discord-App: You can either join our Discord-Server via Browser or directly via Discord. However, we recommend using the Discord-App to avoid technical issues. Discord can be downloaded for free on:


Microphone: Please make sure you can communicate with us by using a microphone or a headset. Using a webcam would be cool but is not necessarily needed.


Among Us: “Among Us” is a beginner friendly game in the manner of “Werewolf”, in which some of the players are assigned crewmates whose mission is to fix a spaceship by completing tasks. Others are assigned impostors whose mission is to wipe out the crewmates and remain undetected. Call emergency meetings to discuss suspicious behavior to find out who the impostor is. Accusing, lying and bluffing are basic skills that will help you win the game.

If you want to join us on playing “Among Us”, please download and install the game before the event. The game can be bought on Steam for 3,99€ or downloaded for free on Google Play Store/App Store for your mobile phone. Please make sure to be familiar with the game so that we can start playing it right away without explaining its rules and mechanics. A link to join the Among Us-lobby will be posted on Discord once everybody is ready to play.


We are looking forward to meeting you!
