It isn’t often that a game gets simultaneously described as adorable and satanic.
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.Official synopsis for Cult of the Lamb.
In Cult of the Lamb, you are put in the trotters of adorable lamb who is cute and fluffy on the surface, but is in fact the leader of an evil satanic cult. The game features an unsual blend of action-adventure RPG, dungeon-crawling roguelike and town building. Whether the gameplay is more focused on the roguelike or town building, wool have to wait and see. Oh okay, that one was a sheep shot. I mean cheap. Anyway, expanding your domain and battling off against other evil cults sounds like a lot of fun.
Cult of the Lamb is developed by Massive Monster, an indie studio who have released a few other small titles. It is published by Devolver Digital and was revealed on GameCom 2021’s opening night. The game is set for launch at some point in 2022 and will be available on both PC and unspecified consoles.
The trailer shows a lamb being sacrificed atop a satantic pentagram only to be saved by a mysterious figure. The now possessed lamb returns to free a bunch of innocent looking animals from their shackles, who in turn become loyal cultists. From what is
herdheard in the trailer it seems likely that the game will have a good, driving soundtrack: all important for staying in the zone when slaying flocks on unbelievers. The art style seems reminiscent of The Binding of Isaac and even Don’t Starve when looking at the cult settlements.
