Among Us Scratch is a multiplayer social deduction game played online. The science fiction horror movie The Thing and the party game Mafia served as inspiration for the game.
Players in Among Us Scratch assume the role of vibrant, armless cartoon astronauts in space-themed environments. Every player adopts one of two personas: the majority are crewmates, while a minority are impostors. In the game, crewmates collaborate to do tasks assigned to them while simultaneously utilizing social deduction to identify and vote out suspected impostors—who look just like crewmates—whose goal is to assassinate the crewmates.
Critics praised it for having enjoyable and engaging gameplay. Several online memes have been created about the game and its stylized characters.
