It’s fascinating where the winding roads of history can lead you once you start heading down one of its paths. In this video, I journey from the video game Among Us becoming massively popular in 2020, and end up at Norwegian and British explorers racing toward the South Pole in 1911.
Among Us is an online multiplayer deduction game from 2018 that became massively popular in 2020.
While the gameplay is inspired by party games like Mafia and Werewolf, the narrative backdrop is inspired by Ridley Scott’s Alien film from 1979 and John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982.

Serves three Innsmouthians.
1. Tenderise 300 grams of octopus, either by beating the crap out of it, or by freezing and thawing it.
Chop it in pieces and boil it until it is tender, for about 20 to 45 minutes.
Or just buy it tinned.
2. Make octopus ragù.
You can do this by using a normal bolognaise recipe, but exchange the meat with octopus.
3. Boil 250 grams of fresh tagliatelle pasta.
During the last few minutes of boiling, add 120 grams of chopped kale.
It is possible to replace the kale with seaweed.
4. Fry up 130 grams of diced smoked bacon.
5. Plate up, and add a few cherry tomato halves and a bit of grated parmigiano on top.
