2019.2.13

February 14, 2019

  • 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 reduce its visibility so it isn't game breaking.
  • Ghosts no longer get the 5 minute penalty for leaving.
    • Ideally, we want players to stay for the entire game. Ghost crewmates are still responsible for doing tasks, and ghost impostors can still sabotage to remain helpful. But we understand that some players don't enjoy playing as ghosts and until we can further improve that experience, it's not fair to penalize people who have played the game long enough to die.
  • Ghost impostors can no longer use vents.
  • Fixed graphical issues with medscan animation.
  • Fixed various issues related to players leaving mid-game.
    • This manifests in strange ways. For example, sometimes "Player 1 was An Impostor" shows up as "... The Impostor" in a game with multiple impostors. This is because other impostors have left the game, their "Am I Impostor" data was removed. The update keeps that kind of data around, so this is fixed.
    • A better example is when a player dies, they leave behind a body. But if the dead player leaves before the body is reported, it shows up as calling an emergency meeting. There are lots of weird cases like this that should now be fixed.

Made ghosts a bit faster, so they can follow the action easier.

  • Fixed ghosts not showing on the game end screen.
  • Fixed Korean characters periodically showing up as boxes or bold.
  • Fixed non-ASCII characters for local game names.
  • Fixed text sizes on intro screen.
  • Fixed scrolling on Find Game screen.

Full devlog

2019.1.21

January 25, 2019

  • Translations
    • Better international text support to the chat rooms
    • Support for most accented characters, Cyrillic, and Korean
  • Online game filtering based on map, language, and in game settings

Smaller changes

  • We've added a 5-minute ban to players who leave games or close the app in the middle of a game.
  • Impostors can now use the medbay scanner.
    • Common tasks are intended to give impostors a single place to expect all players to pass through. The shared animation unfortunately gave crewmates a strong means to ensure certain players are not the impostor. While there are aggressive impostor strategies to combat this, knowing 100% who is or is not an impostor is not a mechanic we think is in the spirit of the game.
  • Fixed/improved various bugs:
    • Sabotages would sometimes start after a meeting starts
    • Scan animation would sometimes play while the player can move around.
    • FindGame list sometimes has a ship in the background.
    • Rounding causes game options text to be inconsistent
    • Can accidentally report bodies through the map screen.

  • Added easier ability to switch backend server IPs
  • Added 2019 yellow party hat
  • Fixed Oxygen sabotage task not completing at 2/2 sometimes.
  • Fixed players appearing to not move or being invisible.
    • This seems like a small bug, but can manifest itself in big ways. This bug could only happen when joining games, but if everyone else leaves, the bugged player will become host. Players with a bugged host might experience sabotages, kills, reporting, voting and other things not working.
  • General improvements to connection stability from the app side.

2018.12.2

December 2, 2018

  • Added limited edition holiday '18 hats bundle
  • Emergency button disabled for first 10 seconds of game
  • Among Us now disconnects when app is suspended.
    • This one mostly affects mobile, but this is the leading cause of joining a game and only seeing stars, so this should be a very nice fix!
  • Issues when starting sabotage at the same time as a meeting is called.
  • Players can no longer cause multiple sabotages at the same time.
  • Announcement shows up when not new.
  • Softlock when players call emergency at the same time they are killed

October 29, 2018

  • Added recommended settings button in options
  • Added graphics tab with resolution options to settings (PC only)

Fixes

  • Fix black screen of death
  • Skipped votes were ignored.
    • If most players voted skip, and the remaining players didn't tie, then the second most popular vote would have won.
  • Game settings don't sync right when the host changes
  • Name entry with join button for local games didn't work.
  • Garbage chute should get stuck less often.
  • Add steam sounds in engines
  • Add kill sound for impostor

Balance Adjustments

  • Reduce upload data from 12 to 8 seconds
    • We found this was a lot of boring wait time for a "short task".
  • Reduce fix wires from 4 to 3 stops.
    • Although this is an easy task, 4 stops made the consoles feel less random and created a lot of walking time.
  • Reduce inspect sample from 4 to 1 sample, but increase from 15 to 60 seconds.
    • This task was meant to be one you felt you could start and come back to, but 15 seconds wasn't really long enough to leave. Similarly, it's not a very exciting task, so needing to repeat it 4 times wasn't very fun.

October 19, 2018

Fixed:

  • "Black screen of death" caused by joining a game when the host leaves
  • Couldn't scroll down enough in customize game to set short tasks

  • When a player joined a game at the same time the host started, the joined player could get some weird behaviour. The easiest to see is that you don't get tasks, but it might also lead to overpopulation (>10 players in a game)
  • When two meetings start at the same time (by report or emergency), clients would see two meeting tablets. One of them would work, but the other would never close, often leading to a softlock.
  • General network stability. Players should notice fewer disconnects.
  • We added an optional voting timer to limit meetings from 1–5 minutes (default: off). So hopefully kicking/banning due to AFK and stubbornness will be reduced.
  • We put the shop in the lobby's customize screen, so if you see a sweet hat or are tired of mobile ads, you can easily buy those things.

September 30, 2018

  • Added ban menu for hosts
  • Doors can no longer be closed after a sabotage has started, and sabotages can't be started with doors closed
  • New sound effects

Fixed:

  • Certain kill animations had incorrect crewmate colors
  • The incorrect player would sometimes be voted off despite a consensus.
  • Triggering two meetings in quick succession could cause a softlock.
  • Admin's card swipe task would close sometimes when releasing the card. (PC only)

2018.9.20

September 23, 2018

  • Added online game finder for public games
  • Added sound effects (disabled for mobile players)
  • UI redesign
  • Added lobby chat
  • The play online screen remembers the last used game code until you quit
  • You can now pick between short, normal, and long kill distance using the lobby computer
  • You should be far less likely to spawn into space before/after a game.
    • This is partially caused by a host with a poor (high ping) internet connection. You may need to wait up to 10 seconds to spawn when joining or rejoining a game. 10 seconds is how long it takes to safely kick someone if they abruptly disconnect.
  • Players should no longer occasionally spawn duplicates.
    • Similar to above, It may take a few seconds to despawn when quickly rejoining due to abrupt disconnect.
  • You can no longer start the "Clean O2 Filter" task through the cafeteria wall.
  • Multiple impostors cannot start multiple sabotages at the same time.
  • Security door could never be closed.
  • No longer softlock when exiled as impostor during freeplay.
  • Various other fixes such as some panels not auto-closing after completion.

2018.9.6

September 11, 2018

Fixed:

  • Sometimes when playing again, players spawn as the same color. The duped players can't both vote, creating a softlock during discussion.
  • Sometimes when the host is watching a mobile ad after playing again, it causes other players to be stuck before respawning.

Selecting 2+ Impostors for <5 players or 3+ Impostors for <6 players would cause the Impostors to instantly win.

    • 2 Impostors now requires 6+ players, 3 Impostors requires 8+ players.

Selecting 0 total tasks would cause the Crewmates to instantly win

    • If 0 total tasks are selected, the game defaults to 1 short task.
  • During discussion, ghosts could send chat messages, potentially giving away the impostor.
    • Ghosts can still read messages, but cannot send them anymore.
  • Impostor ghosts (when there are 2+ impostors) could kill players
    • Impostor ghosts cannot kill, but can still sabotage. We will be checking to see how this affects game balance.
  • Miscellaneous small bugs, like sabotage flashes continuing into discussion or being able to tap buttons through open menus.
