They also added that they have plans to add many more products to the line. These will include figures and plushies as well.

InnerSloth has also urged the fans to buy only the official merch. In a previous statement, the indie studio stressed the importance of fans buying official products and avoiding fake ones. According to Comicbook, they addressed the fan art and fan march policy on their website late last month.

The policy said, “Although we are honored and overwhelmed by all of the fanart enthusiasm, selling unauthorized merchandise featuring Among Us characters, names, sayings, scenes, stories, and artwork (collectively, the ‘IP’) is illegal, and a violation of Innersloth’s IP rights.

“In order to preserve their IP rights, Innersloth can’t allow unlicensed merchandise to be created and sold, without maintaining quality control and oversight. Also, buying your Among Us merch from official sources will ensure that you are supporting the developers that help create the fandoms you love!”

It is important to support small creators and developers, and hence it is imperative that fans only invest in official merch. Let us know in the comments what has caught your eye from the Among Us merchandise.
