I’d be surprised if the team at Innersloth hasn’t been approached already about turning their monster hit Among Us into a movie. Some Hollywood exec has probably already driven the money truck up to their homes—or at least proposed it. In case they haven’t, the Gamereel podcast has come up with some entertaining ideas for how to turn the social-deception-in-space game into a flick worth watching.
In each episode of Gamereel, hosts Cassidy, Anika, and Matt pitch ideas to each other for movies based on various games. Their latest episode handles Among Us, and it’s a super entertaining listen. First, the hosts give an overview of the game (in case you’re not familiar), and get to pitching their ideas. Then they pick one to focus on and brainstorm what the film’s story beats might be—with a recap at the end. It’s a very different kind of gaming podcast but one that’s a lot of fun, and their backlog includes episodes on Splatoon, Brutal Legend, Shovel Knight, and Monster Prom, to name a few.
Sadly they are not (yet?) available on Apple Podcasts as of this writing (UPDATE: they are now), but you can add their RSS feed to your favorite podcatching client, including Apple Podcasts, via their Podbean page.
