Unused Graphics

Voting Screen

AmongUs-UnusedVotingGraphics.png
In the voting screen graphics, there are early countdown numbers, early vote selection graphics, and a star (which may have been an early I voted! graphic). The countdown starts at 15 and goes down to blank.

Hats

Traffic Jam

An unused uncolored version of the Traffic Jam color hats exists in the files, with it existing before version 2021.11.9.

Placeholder Pets Shop Icon

funny

In version 2019.5.28, a placeholder pets shop icon was present in the files. It's a roughly edited version of the skins icon featuring Big Chungus, Sonic's infamous scrapped design from Sonic the Hedgehog (2020), and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Early Mira HQ Sprites

In version 2019.6.12, there were many rough, placeholder Mira HQ map and task sprites in the files.

Tasks

Among Us Early Assemble Artifact Sprites.png

An early version of the Assemble Artifact task, using a basic white background. The crystal is also green and its parts are numbered.

Among Us Early Sort Samples Task.png

An early version of the Sort Samples task.

Map

Among Us Early Mira HQ Objects.png

An early version of the Mira HQ objects sheet, with most of the objects being simple outlines, mostly in blue.

Early Final
Among Us Early Mira HQ Map.png Among Us Final Mira HQ Map.png

An early version of Mira HQ's map.

Placeholder Xbox Buttons

Crudely-drawn placeholder versions of the buttons seen in the Xbox versions of the game.

Fortegreen

AmongUs Crewmate Color Fortegreen.png

Fortegreen (actually Eucalyptus Green) is a subtly different shade of dark green from the one in-game. The "forte" part of the name likely refers to one of Innersloth's programmers, Forest W. (also known as Fortebass). It's not entirely unused, as it's effectively the game's "default" color for a player, which can be seen when a new player joins a lobby (their name will also be ??? until they've fully joined). The color can be made fully playable by editing the PlayerPrefs file or using an editor.

Unused Sounds

victory_disconnect.wav

Originally, too many players disconnecting from a game would result in a stalemate, and this audio cue would play. After an update on March 25th, 2020, disconnected players are simply counted as dead, making stalemates impossible and rendering this cue unused.

ventGroundEnter.wav

Audio originally intended for Impostors jumping in holes on the Polus map, judging by the underlying sound of rustling pebbles. It likely remains unused because of the cartoonish "phoomp" at the beginning.

Unused Text

You're dead. Enjoy the chaos.

This text string was originally intended to be displayed in the place of the task list as a ghost player. It is a remnant of the closed beta, where ghosts could not complete tasks yet.

CREWMEMBER NUTTYJAR HAS (number) EMERGENCY MEETINGS LEFT

While the specific text string is used, "NUTTYJAR" is replaced with your name in game.

Hidden Crewmate

AmongUs-RestroomCrewmate.png
Behind the stall doors in the restrooms on Polus, there is a crewmate hidden from view. The crewmate is barely visible in-game, but can be seen by modifying the game to turn the camera.

Cursor

AmongUs-mouseCursor.png
Showcased in the Nintendo Switch release's trailer, and in one picture on the eShop, the Cursor in Among Us was never officially implemented into a public release of the game. According to ForteBass, it was an early replacement for touch controls while in handheld mode, but was replaced by touch controls because it was "kinda slow to do most tasks with[.]" It could be controlled at the time by moving the left analog stick or by using gyroscopic controls. It does appear randomly in the Switch version's options menu, likely unintentionally. However, plugging in a keyboard and mouse into your console does show this cursor.

Development Text

This isn't how that works.

A small quip by one of the developers, purpose unknown. Tweeted out via the Innersloth Twitter account.

Unused Tasks

Get Biggol Sword

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: If this is not a dummied-out task and the only remnant is the file name, this should be considered an Oddity instead.
task_bigolchest.png

An unused task for the Airship map, whose only remnants are this chest texture and its translation string (task_bigolchest.png, used in one of the main hall's rooms)[1]. The task would have been a reference to finding the Biggol Sword in a sidequest in Infiltrating the Airship.

Internal Name

The game was originally called Space Mafia (since it was inspired by Mafia) before settling on the less blunt Among Us. The data folder on Android/iOS still references Space Mafia (com.innersloth.spacemafia).
