From a time when there were too few players to even find a match to a position where if you don’t join a lobby within a second, it’s get filled – AMONG US – the casual viral game has come a very long.
Developed and Published by InnerSloth in 2018, the game was only able to attract a couple of players. However, it was only after the studio released it’s another game, The Henry Stickmin Collection when a few streamers got to know about AMONG US and really enjoyed playing. Thanks to the snowball effect, every second streamer is playing the game in the present world, and the game has become so popular that it has already broken numerous records, and the developers are sitting on a heap of cash.
One such record is that in October, AMONG US was the most downloaded mobile game with 74.8 Million Downloads (on Android and iOS), which brings the total download tally of the game on the mobile platform to a record-breaking 217 Million Downloads.
To understand how big the number is, let us tell you that the second most downloaded mobile game in October ‘Subway Surfers‘ stands at only 19.8 Million downloads. This means AMONG US was downloaded almost four times than the second most downloaded mobile game in October.
According to our Expert Gaming Analyst, though the most casual games’ success is limited to a short period – For example, Fall Guys. The same will be the case with AMONG US, but the game’s popularity is not going at least until the end of this year.
In November and December, it is expected to see even more rise in the total number of AMONG US monthly downloads, kudos to the Holiday Season. It is also expected that by Mid-December, the total number of AMONG US download on the Mobile Platform itself will surpass the population of the USA, which sits at 330 Million.
