Among Us developers accuse Fortnite Imposters mode of plagiarism
Innersloth, the creators of viral hit Among Us, has openly accused Epic Games of plagiarizing its game following the announcement of the new Imposters mode in Fortnite, which features a very similar concept.
Imposters introduces a multi-room map called The Bridge for 10 players. Eight agents must maintain the bridge while two imposters must destroy it, and make sure their sabotage does not raise any suspicion.
Flipped layout: Among Us programmer Gary Porter draws attention to the obvious similarities between The Bridge and the Among Us map The Skeld: “They flipped Electrical and Medbay and connected Security to Cafeteria.”
Different flavour: Community director Victoria Tran acknowledges that game mechanics “shouldn’t be gatekept,”, but also thinks Epic could mix things up by using “different themes or terminology”.
