Published 01/15/2021, 8:18 AM EST


In 2020, we witnessed some of the most unexpected games, like Among Us and Fall Guys, rise to prominence. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that content creators around the world helped the most in popularizing such indie titles. Big names like Pokimane, TimTheTatman, PewDiePie, and Jacksepticeye, among others, not only had a blast while playing these games, but carried them to the top of viewership and sales charts.

One such creator is Jack “CouRageJD” Dunlop. He has played a variety of games in his streaming career and has over 2 million followers on Twitch. It is no surprise that CouRage also has his fair share in the success of Among Us. However, he recently discussed the possibility of quitting the game.

Among Us gets a taste of its own medicine

CouRage talked about how setting up star-studded lobbies for streaming Among Us is a chaotic task. He often feels left out of groups, and that has compelled him to look for other alternatives.

CouRage claims that he enjoys playing Rust, and that too, with a lot less effort.

“A fun thing about these rust servers is like, right now with Cloakzy, Tim, few other great streamers and so, now this game is like new. It’s crazy, it’s a fun group.” 

Facepunch Studios released Rust in early access in 2013 and eventually rolled out a full release in February 2018. Surprisingly, the game has now come to limelight after a plethora of creators supported OfflineTV and Spanish creator El Rubius in their initiative to play it.

CouRage further clarified that he has not quit InnerSloth’s multiplayer game altogether. Instead, he just needs a break and wants to try out other games like Rust itself.

Among Us performs great on my channel, but I’m just burned out. I need to be having fun. People forget that I’m a variety streamer.”

It is self-evident here that instant success also imposes certain responsibilities on the developers, and InnerSloth is no exception. From catering to a huge user-base suddenly, to continuing the momentum with fresh content, it had to double its efforts to maintain the popularity of Among Us.
