Innersloth, the small independent studio behind Among us, climbs high after a breakout showing to The Game Awards last week. Among us won awards for Best Multiplayer Game and Best Mobile Game, and the developers have teamed up with the show itself to reveal a new card it’s heading to players early next year. It’s called The Airship, and it mixes up the gameplay a bit.
