Among Us is currently solidifying its place in the 2020 gaming hall of fame. After being crowned the Best Multiplayer Game of the year at The Game Awards, it has now gone on and proven its dominance and success in yet another packed category.

Among Us the Best Mobile Game of 2020
Among Us launched back in 2018, but did not receive the recognition it deserves until earlier this year. The social deduction game, which is basically a version of Mafia but set in space, reeled in fans despite it being a very simple title.
Going wildly popular, the game took over social channels, bringing in massive sustained viewership on YouTube and Twitch. It has now solidified that popularity by winning two key awards at The Game Awards, 2020. Crowned the Best Mobile Game 2020, here’s the list of nominees in the category:

Better network speeds and the fact that a mobile phone is the primary computing device for many folks in these markets has pushed mobile gaming to new highs. Among Us has made its mark by securing this much-deserved win today.
