Player Count

Goose Goose Ducks allows up to 16 players to join a single game. This allows you to play with even more of your friends. Being free-to-play also gives more of your friends access to the game to ensure you fill a lobby. Among Us launched with the ability to play with 10 players in a single game. Since then, they have expanded this to 15, which is still below Goose Goose Duck's player count.

Voice Chat

Goose Goose Duck has a built-in voice chat with the option to turn on proximity chat. This means you do not have to use any other software to communicate with your friends. This makes it much easier to talk and ensures all your friends can talk to one another. Among Us does not have built-in voice chat and requires the use of mods or third-party software to communicate via voice. It features a quick chat option that allows players to use templates to send messages to other players.

Game Modes

Goose Goose Duck has multiple game modes to choose from. These include Classic, Classic+, Dine & Dash, Goose Hunt, and Trick or Treat. With multiple game modes, there are numerous ways to play Goose Goose Duck and ensure you don't get tired of it. Among Us only has one game mode, and the developers have stated they do not plan to add more game modes. There are mods out there that have new game modes. While Among Us only has one mode, developer Innersloth can focus solely on that mode and improve it.


Goose Goose Duck has 24+ different roles to choose from in addition to Crewmate and Imposter. These roles are optionally so can be turned off and on when wanted. While this adds many different ways to play the game, it can easily become confusing and a lot to keep track of. Among Us only has three roles: Crewmate, Imposter, and Ghost. With a small number of roles, gameplay can be limited or become stale. At the same time, it is easy to pick up Among Us and for new players to learn the game.
