Fortress nightnew Between us-Inspiration mode, Imposter, Is online, the staff is at Inner laziness sigh epic The studio was never asked to cooperate.
Fortnite Impostors is suspiciously similar to the smashing indie game “Among Us” that swept the world last year. In Fortnite’s new model and InnerSloth’s internationally popular game, a team of players work together to either eliminate everyone else or find out who is lying.
The similarities—and the fact that Epic chose to leverage the success of “Between Us” without the input of the InnerSloth team—are not particularly good among the independent studio staff.Admittedly, what “Among Us” does is nothing new, but when you look at the style, naming conventions, and overall vibe of the “Impersonator” mode, everything is different Their.
Among Us Community Director Victoria Tran Say on twitter “Cooperation is really very cool.”
Just like game mechanics, these should not be locked, but at least even different topics or terminology will make things more interesting? 😕

“I think today because of all the bf dungeon stuff, plus this, it hit me particularly hard, and it hits the individual so strangely, because it feels like being a woman/POC in the technical field,” Tran continued Tao. “Making our own story/content feels like a helpless’what’s the point of laughing out loud’.”
It’s not just Tran who feels this way. Innersloth programmer Adriel Wallick posted some comments on Twitter, although their approach is more subtle (thanks to PC Gamer).
Anyway-I just feel very depressed today.
Everything in the world feels insurmountable, so this is just another interesting reminder of how small we really are.

PC Gamer also pointed out that in response to Twitter DM, Tran said that InnerSloth did not work with Epic to develop the model at all, “although we originally wanted to do this and discovered it at the same time as others.” Apparently, Tran and her team Is doing “some very cool collaborations with other independent developers”, at least.
