As one of the Crewmates, it’s your goal to win by completing tasks to prepare the ship or by ejecting all the impostors.
Imposters can sabotage the spaceship, by doing things like disabling communications, turning off the lights, and more.
You can use some handy tricks like checking the vitals of Crewmates, check the admin map to see how many Crewmates there are in other rooms, and to check the camera’s in the corridors.
