Among us is a ‘whodunit’ type game where a team of players work together to complete tasks on board a ship while trying to avoid being killed by an imposter among them. This game can be played privately with friends, or online with strangers. An imposter is selected at the beginning of each game and is tasked with secretly killing and sabotaging members of the team. While playing the game, you can open a chat feature to discuss with your teammates who you think the imposter may be and who you are going to vote for. Parents can be offered some reassurance to know that the chat has a censored option which filters out inappropriate language, but unfortunately this censor can be turned off as easily as it can be turned on. This is where the censorship in the game ends. Among Us gives us no option to block the online gaming component which means children can easily enter the online mode and find themselves communicating with strangers. This chat area contains language that can be likened to 'locker room talk', so parents should be mindful if they are sensitive to their kids being exposed to swearing.
