Raf Grassetti, the art director for 2018’s God of War, has unleashed a wonderfully horrific CG model of the viral multiplayer hit Among Us.
Few would have expected that a 2018 indie title would become a breakout hit two years later, but Among Us has seemingly defied the odds. Over the past few months, the low profile indie game had an explosion in popularity and has become one of 2020’s breakout hits thanks to its clever emphasis on player deception. Of course, it helps that the game’s charming aesthetics lend themselves to being portrayed in a horrific fashion, as seen by this art from Sony Santa Monica Studio’s Raf Grassetti.
Grassetti–who was the art director for 2018’s God of War–shared a piece of art on his personal Twitter depicting an Imposter mercilessly killing a Crewmate from Among Us. Of course, the scene that we all know too well from the game is made even more jarring when it’s a sculpted CG creation straight out of Alien. You can check out Grassetti’s work below, along with a timelapse video of him putting together the artwork:

This of course isn’t the first time that Grassetti has shared some impressive creations on social media, as previously he has recreated some of the iconic fighters of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Star Fox, and many more. We recommend heading over to his Instagram to see even more of his amazing work and 3D models.
Among Us was first released back in 2018 by developer InnerSloth, and while the game released to a quiet reception two years ago, it surprisingly has become one of the biggest streaming hits of the past few months. The developer initially was aiming to release a sequel, but thanks to its surprise success, those plans have been cancelled in favor of expanding on the original game with new content and updates. If you haven’t seen or played the game for yourself, you can watch as the DualShockers staff slowly tears ourselves apart in our stream of the game.
Among Us is currently available on PC, iOS, and Android.
