The similarities between Epic Games’ gameplay and Innersloth’s proposal were just too obvious.
They say that it is better to fix things late than never. Perhaps that is why Epic Games, after releasing a temporary game mode for Fortnite in August that featured too many similarities to Among Us, decided to mention the Innersloth game as the main source of inspiration. Something that has been dropped among the novelties for ‘Imposters’ the mode copied from Fortnite.
Fortnite references Among Us on his blog and chat with Innersloth on TwitterIn this sense, the blog of the title of Epic Games has shared a post about the v18.20 patch, “which brings improvements to Imposters, the game mode inspired by Among Us of Innersloth. “And while this may be seen as a slight redemption by the Fortnite creators, Eurogamer has noted that it is not no allusion a Among Us on the game page.
However, this adds to the fact that Fortnite has wanted to take advantage of the “news” to openly chat with Among Us On twitter, not only mentioning the game’s official account as inspiration for its ‘Imposters’ mode, but also for “work on something fun”.
This dance of inspirations comes from August, when Fortnite released a game mode called ‘Imposters’ that was perceived as a carbon copy of the general proposal of Among Us. In this sense, the Innersloth team felt helpless to see that one of the most popular video games of the moment I had used an idea of my own from Among Us, even after debunking an alleged collaboration with Epic Games. Therefore, they have had to pass two months since the premiere of ‘Imposters’ so that Fortnite has finally accepted the inspiration.
At the moment, it seems that things They are on the right path, as the Innersloth team did not hesitate to show their anger when the Fortnite game mode was released. Therefore, and repeating what was said at the beginning, it is better to fix things late than never to do it, although each will draw their own conclusions on whether Epic Games has finally taken the right step.
