About Cult of the Lamb

About this game

Take control of a lamb that has been saved from sacrifice by The One Who Waits. In order to repay this eternal debt, deliver your soul to this ominous stranger and offer to raise a cult under their name. After all, what better way to show gratitude than to give them a following?

Purge the Land of False Prophets

There is only one true Word, and it is the Word of The One Who Waits; all others are non-believers and blasphemers. Engage in real-time action combat as you purge the land of these false prophets. Non-believers shall perish at your mighty hand; only those who follow your faith shall remain.

Explore an Ever-changing World

No two playthroughs are ever the same in this roguelike adventure. Delve into lands of false prophets, annihilate them, and then jump into new lands in this ever-changing world filled with blasphemers.

Spread the One True Word

Raise a cult from the ground up and teach the one true Word to all who are willing to listen; indoctrinate all new followers into your cult back home by interacting with them, changing their appearance, and even offering them a new name! Give daily sermons to siphon power from your followers and watch their faith grow ever-stronger.

Tend to Your Flock

To keep your flock ever-faithful, you must satisfy them. Grow your small community into a sprawling woodland cult, feed them by throwing grand feasts that will ensure their survival and loyalty, offer them gifts from the lands of the non-believers, and engage yourself in unholy matrimony with one of the followers. Keep your flock happy, and your shrine will glow with their ever-burning faith. A happy flock is a loyal flock. Fail them, however, and you'll need to...

Cleanse the Defectors

Unhappy followers will turn on your cult and attempt to persuade the others into defection. Your numbers mustn't dwindle, but how will you deal with these non-believers? Gently re-educate these defectors to earn their favour once again or feed them to the gods and set an example for those that think they can turn on the cult; it's up to you to decide what kind of cult leader you'll be.

"I'm a big fan of roguelite action games and city builders, but even if you're on the mild side, Cult of the Lamb is a winning combo."

"Reaching that flow-state where the game's many interlocking systems are firing on all cylinders is well worth putting up with any hardships along the way. With proper support...

Absolutely phenomenal game. I came expecting nothing and discovered gold. Great art style, amazing gameplay loop and you get to create your own cult. Game is a perfect mix of binding of Isaac and don't Starve. Absolutely fun from top to bottom. Finished in around 20hr mark with 100% achievements. Building and managing your base is incredibly fun. It's not complicated but complex enough to keep you interested and invested. Rougelike part is just like binding of Isaac. Although it could be tad more challenging, some builds are op.

Binding of Isaace meets Colony Building Sim. Some people will also compare it to Animal Crossing but it lacks depth in Follower/Villager Compartment for that to be the case. This is mostly a great little game the only thing i'd complain about is that theres not much weapon vareity and the game itself to me felt a little lacking in content. Of course that's nothing a dlc expansion can't fix later on and even despite that i clocked in 19 hours trying to atleast get close to 100% (But there were a things that were just too much to ask for to get said 100%). So overall i'd still recommend the game tho i'd still recommend that you'd atleast get a bit of a discount if you can.

I love all of the different aspects of the game between the base/colony management, cute graphics and the roguelite combat. I've only played through around 25% of the game so far but I feel like there's a lot to be explored with this game that I haven't seen before with other roguelites.

Nothing like starting a cult on a Friday night!!!! super fun though slightly boring at first it gets better as the game goes on 100% for that bit 5/5 but my issue that gives it 4 is replayability which is limited

This will probably be the last time I ever buy a game. It's unplayable simple as that. I'm starting to notice more and more developers releasing garbage games with so many bugs that they can't be played. From small indie devs to big commercial studios it's all the same now. It's a lot cheaper to have your fans bug test your products is my guess. Maybe the internet ruined games because they can be easily patched (even though some never do). I miss the days when games had a few rare bugs that usually were caused by players doing things the devs never intended. THEY CLEARLY DIDN'T BUG TEST THIS. WASTE OF MONEY
