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...

A game to have a good time

What you saw about this game is not even far of what it can give you. It has Don't Starve type visuals, some "cult" managment, our mitical roguelike and more. Got it as a gift and I can assure you that it's 100% worth it.

Good groundwork, not enough choices and content

A decent mix of rougelike dungeon crawling and cult management brought down by lack of verity in the choices you make. The core mechanics are all there but both the choices you have for your cult and in the dungeons lack verity, with only two options per choice, and one clearly being both better and more interesting than the other.

Absolutely fantastic mash-up between a managing sim and an action-roguelike. One of the most bangin' game soundtracks of 2022. Gorgeous and fresh art style. Super satisfying game feel and snappy combat. Just genuinely great. Make sure to grab this one!

Fantastic game that is a great mix between Binding of Isaac Roguelike and Town Management Sim. I found my self dancing on either side of the scales of gameplay, from fast intense dungeon crawling, to hours of base and town management. Highly recommend this game for any Roguelike lovers who like a nice spin on the genre.
