• "Among Us" remains one of the most popular multiplayer games today
  • The game is so versatile that it can be played using rules from "Dead by Daylight"
  • The horror game divides players into two groups with different goals, "killers" and "survivors," much like "Among Us"

InnerSloth’s super popular game “Among Us” continues to enjoy massive support from its fans who always find creative ways to play the simple yet thrilling deception game. One of the ways fans get to enjoy the game is by playing it following certain rules – such as those used in other games like “Dead By Daylight.”

Among Us” players have discovered that by using the game’s custom settings feature and by following certain rules from “Dead by Daylight,” they will be able to play the award-winning multiplayer title in a fresh and exciting way.

For those who don’t know, “Dead by Daylight” is a horror game in which players are divided into two groups: “killers” and “survivors.” The killers’ main goal is to seek out the survivors to, as the name implies, kill them and sacrifice them to an in-game persona called “The Entity.” The survivors, on the other hand, do all they can to stay alive and repair generators.

The two groups’ goals are largely similar to the Impostors’ and Crewmates’ in “Among Us.”

Impostors are bent on killing the Crewmates without being discovered for the dangerous beings they are, while Crewmates aim to finish tasks without being snuffed out by Impostors. They can vote out Impostors, but choosing the wrong person to vote out means more risk of getting beaten.

With these rules in mind, players are able to create a custom game that works like “Dead by Daylight” but set in the quirky, colorful world of “Among Us.” Here’s how to play the deduction game this way, as per Screen Rant:

  • First, players will need to set the game up using private lobbies. There are no mods or official game modes for the game. That said, it can be done if all players cooperate.
  • Second, at the start of the game, Impostors must tell Crewmates who they are either via an Emergency Meeting or via voice chat.
  • Third, at the start of every round, Impostors must give Crewmates a 20- to 30-second headstart to start working on their tasks. The length of time depends on the agreement between all players.
  • Fourth, all players, especially Impostors, must agree to limit Sabotage to Communications and Lights. Crewmates are not allowed to fix these once sabotaged.
  • Fifth, players must agree not to report dead bodies or call Emergency Meetings after the Impostors reveal themselves. Those who break the rules can be kicked out of the lobby.

To better improve the game experience, Screen Rant recommends the following game settings:

  • Emergency Meetings: 1 or 0
  • Player Speed: 0.75x
  • Crewmate Vision: 5x
  • Impostor Vision: 0.25x
  • Kill Cooldown: 27.5 seconds
  • Kill Distance: Short
  • Visual Tasks: Off
  • Common Tasks: 2
  • Long Tasks: 2
  • Short Tasks: 3
