It should come as no surprise that the latest viral games can cause Twitch, Facebook and YouTube streamers to grow rapidly. Ninja himself was able to do this with the rapid popularity increase of Fortnite a few years ago. Now, it seems as if other Twitch streamers are starting to grow using one of the latest games to go viral in Among Us.
Seriously, I can’t scroll on any social media platform for more than a couple of seconds without at least one Among Us meme appearing and it looks like it’s only going to grow more.

The space murder mystery game has caused numerous “non-gamers,” my girlfriend included, to start not only playing this game but be hooked to it. The game is simple to access, free and encourages you to not only play amongst friends but also betray them just for fun.
According to Wired, People have fallen in love with this game and are not only wanting to play it but also wanting to watch others play it. Among Us first launched in 2018 to modest attention, but has blown up after streamers in South Korea, Brazil, and the United States started streaming it in 2020.
According to the reports, viewers have watched over 40 million hours of Among Us on Twitch in the last week alone. Furthermore, hundreds of thousands of players are playing it on Steam and it’s been downloaded 86 million times on iPhone and Android phones.
So, yes, if you’re a small streamer, this could be a chance for you to use trending hashtags such as #AmongUs to gather more attention to your stream but also interact with your audience. This game allows your viewers to also play alongside you and develop a relationship with you, which could make them come again and again to your stream.
