Fortnite’s new limited-time event, Impostors, is basically a straight lift of Among UsNot only that, it’s the second time in nine months Epic Games’ battle royale has detoured into Innersloth’s turf, and their developers aren’t happy with it.

“Is it really that hard to put 10% more effort into putting your own spin on it though?” tweeted Marcus Bromander, the studio’s co-founder. Programmer Adriel Wallick posted a link to a webcomic, more or less accusing Epic of taking their work.

Impostors, announced yesterday, even takes its name from Among Us’s alien infiltrators. In the Fortnite event, a group of 10 players is trying to discover who among them are the two Impostors. The Impostors are trying to eliminate these Agents without being discovered; Agents are trying to complete tasks that will get their starship to its destination safely. The group routinely meets to discuss who the Impostors might be, and accuse others of being one. All of these are core features of Among Us’ gameplay loop.
