One of the games that has hit the hardest in recent years has been the Pokémon Go for smartphone. This game is a reference in smartphone games, which has obtained and is very popular. Pokémon Go in its day was downloaded more than 1 billion times, an astronomical figure. Now Among Us could break the record set by Pokémon Go.
The popularity of Among Us comes from being widely played by YouTubers and renowned streamers such as Ibai, Rubius, or Auron. Due to this the fever to play this title has gotten out of control. It has even become the third most played game on Steam, something that is very difficult to achieve.
Among Us would be about to surpass in downloads to Pokémon Go
According to SuperData: “In September, the mobile version of Among Us registered almost as many players as Pokémon GO did during its all-time peak in popularity in August 2016.” That the game in its version for Android and iOS is free is helping it to be downloaded and played. Indicate that Pokémon Go is also free, although it generates millions indirectly with microtransactions.
It should be noted that despite being very played and having huge downloads, the income for InnerSloth is minimal. The problem is that it only has cosmetic elements and the option to remove ads in the smartphone version. Among Us is not even among the 50 games that generated the most money in September 2020 on smartphones. What we do not know is how much the Steam version has generated, which costs 3.99 euros
For a game developed by three people with fairly simple mechanics, the numbers are brutal. Indicate that it is currently the second best-selling game on Steam, only surpassed by Phasmophobia, the fashion game. This ghost finding game has become very popular for the same reason as Among Us, although it is considerably more expensive.
