Tan was the 13th Crewmate color designed for Among Us. Tan was specifically designed as a color unique enough that colorblindness shouldn't have been an issue.[1] The original date of its conception is unknown, but it was likely around April 2019, the same month Cyan and Lime were added to the game. (v2019.4.24) However, Tan was not publicly revealed until August 11, 2019, on one of Marcus Bromander's Polus development streams.[2]

When bringing Cyan back into the game (it was an indev color removed at launch, although still present on the wallet photo), Innersloth started workshopping more colors to round out the palette. This is where Lime and Tan both originated. Ultimately, Lime was chosen as the 12th color and Tan was left to the wayside, as the developers didn't want an uneven number of colors.

Shortly after revealing Tan on stream, Puffballs added it as an emoji to the Innersloth Discord server as an inside joke.

Trivia

  • The only official Among Us remains of Tan are in the Innersloth Discord server as a custom emoji.
  • Unlike Fortegreen, there is no way of playing as Tan, even with code editing, as it was never added into the game.[2]
  • Tan is referenced in the Henry Stickmin game Completing the Mission. The Assemble the Crew medal involves the player having to find all the Crewmate colors scattered around the game and put them into slots. When Tan is found, instead of being included in the "slots," it is punched out.
  • Innersloth has stated that The Airship will have ways for games to have fifteen players, however, there are only twelve colors in Among Us. Some speculate that Tan may be added back into the game, while some believe that no more colors will be added without making the game harder to play for colorblind players.
