Valkyrae, a popular YouTube streamer, claimed that her Among Us content, called ‘Sussy Sundays,’ is her most popular broadcasts and videos.
Among Us was first released in 2018, but it gained a lot of traction in 2020 thanks to content creators. According to Stream Charts, the space-themed party game soared to the top on Twitch this year, with over 419 million hours viewed. Despite the fact that the current playerbase of Among Us is far from its peak, the game nevertheless generates traffic for content developers. Valkyrae, Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, CORPSE HUSBAND, and others from the Amigops team have kept the game going with their regular ‘Sussy Sunday’ broadcasts.
Valkyrae, a YouTube streamer, discussed a segment of her audience that almost solely watches Among Us games on a June 10 broadcast.
Valkyrae detailed; “There are a lot of people that literally only watch because of Among Us. It’s true, I have like 30,000 viewers on Sundays and the rest of the week they couldn’t give a fuck.”
As the popularity of Among Us grew, so did the number of streams, with Ludwig admitting to cheating to get more content, and Diguised Toast expressing regret for missing the Twitch meta. Valkyrae was even seen playing Among Us on Jimmy Fallon in 2021, demonstrating that livestreaming has made its way into the mainstream. Though Among Us is no longer in its prime, Valkyrae’s anecdote demonstrates how popular the game remains.
