Not everyone knows or remembers this, but Among Us did not immediately achieve the great success we all know. Its rediscovery has in fact taken place for the skin of the cuff during 2020, thanks to the global pandemic that has forced us all into the house. goose goose duck, a free-to-play video game that reminds him a lot in its dynamics, is having a very similar experience in toto.
Released during the last year, Goose Goose Duck has gone totally unnoticed in the eyes of the general public, starting its climb towards popularity only after some time, starting from this November. Going beyond that looks a lot like Among Us texturally, this video game looks like also follow him along the road to success.
