Among Us’s Forest Willard revealed on Twitch’s Weekly Gaming Show, that the InnerSloth team is actively looking for ways to get killed players more involved with the game from the dead.
Currently, a player that has been killed can return as a ghost to complete tasks, but they can’t do much beyond that, which makes sense. This is because if players who have been killed could communicate with other Crewmates, would likely tip-off who the game’s Imposters are.
However, that hasn’t stopped Among Us developers from confirming that “Guardian Angels,” who can save other players from death, are on the way soon to the game.
“We’ve thought of a lot about [making ghosts into] Guardian Angels and stuff like that, but it’s a difficult thing to pull off but we’re definitely thinking about those sort of things,” said Willard.
An inclusion like this should prolong the game and make it more interesting for dead players, as well as causing fewer players to leave the game after being killed and actually helping their living teammates instead.
The only issue is that if a player was to be resurrected, they would have knowledge about who the Imposter is. Therefore, there must be an inclusion to counteract this. Maybe through a restricted chat after being revived is an option but I’m sure InnerSloth realise this and that’s why it’s taking some time.
