Charismatic developer Massive Monster and their faithful followers at Devolver Digital have announced Cult of the Lamb, an adorably dark game about running a cult in a crumbling world of ritual and ruin, utilising a powerful gameplay loop of base building and dungeon crawling. Expect to see the game hit the Xbox family of consoles at some stage during 2022.
Cult of the Lamb casts players in the role of a possessed lamb saved from annihilation by an ominous stranger, who must repay their debt by building a loyal following in his name. That shouldn’t be too hard, as this particular lamb is a huge fan of cult documentaries and knows all of the tricks to get it done. I lied about that last part, but the point stands.
Start your own cult in a land of false prophets, venturing out into diverse and mysterious regions to build a loyal community of woodland worshippers and spread your Word to become the one true cult. Maybe you’ll get your own docuseries one day!
