Fortnite sets a high standard for absurdity. It''s a game in which characters such as Rick Sanchez, Naruto, Darth Vader, and even two different names of Tom Holland (Spider-Man Holland, Uncharted Holland, etc.) can take up arms in a 100-player battle royale arena.
Still, YouTuber Ryan, who goes by the monicker 12th Hour, manages to make its world even more weird and a whole lot creepier with his customized events. Most recently, he shared a video for an imagined event inspired by the viral mafia game, Among Us, which adds horrifyingly large crew members to the world of Fortnite.
As the player character stands, the enormous monstrosity begins approaching. The screen fades to black and then cuts to a meeting of crewmates at an Emergency Meeting table from Among Us, covered with a Fortnite map. I''ll tell you the story here, but it''s a little bit frugal.

These custom events aren''t an in-game mod, but rather a complicated process of recording and editing footage using visual effects. Ryan begins by recording in-game content to make the character appear more like it is in the game. He then transforms the crewmate into additional effects and starts by completing the sequence with additional effects. The Among Us video takes about three days to complete.
Ryan grew up writing Fortnite montage videos before proceeding on to creating customized gameplay. During the first one, he nabbed more than a million views, and decided to keep making videos in a similar way. I knew it would also be a fun project to make, by definition a huge among us character in Fortnite. He said,
For him, it''s about having fun with Fortnite and developing content. My favorite thing about developing these events is just being able to be creative, having fun, learning, and ultimately doing what I love.
