Epic admits copying Among Us for Fortnite Impostors
We spoke to you in August of Fortnite Impostors mode, the arrival of plagiarized content from Among Us without any permission from the Innersloth studio! A very cool move for players who were able to enjoy a breath of fresh air on their BR, but a big disappointment for the studio behind Among Us who, failing to be involved in the creation of the mode, would have at least hoped for a minimum recognition on social networks. Back on the outcome of this Fortnite Among Us mode.
Fortnite Impostors copied to Among Us? Obviously
More obvious than the nose in the middle of the face, the Fortnite Impostors mode plagiarism on Among Us did nothing to hide. Innersloth had spoken at the time of the update 17.40 on the appearance of the mode. Obviously, it was to publicly mark their disappointment with this copy of a giant too big for them. This time, it is Fortnite which relaunches the discussion to admit having been “inspired” by their game of betrayal. It may not seem like much. But this is a good starting point that avoids building up tension between the two communities.
Why did the official Fortnite twitter account take a month to express itself? Perhaps Epic thought the tweets about his plagiarism would subside once the exit was behind them. No one could tell this was a perfect copy without Epic admitting their wrongs, or his “inspiration” for Fortnite Impostors.
However, the community was not fooled. In addition, the terms of the game were not even adapted from game to game. the gameplay was almost identical and the whole atmosphere was plagiarized.
Like this tweet, many Internet users took the floor to emphasize Epic’s hypocrisy with Fortnite Impostors. While fighting against Apple to reduce its unfair practices, allow itself to copy a smaller studio without even a gesture of recognition or a Twitter DM, it had to be done. A stab in the back from a fake crewmate.
But anyway, all’s well that ends well (except intellectual property which remains a Gruyere in video games). Indeed, Innersloth and Epic announced on Twitter to collaborate to enrich Fortnite Impostors content in a more legitimate way. So, half-forgiven admitted fault?
