About Cultist Simulator

About this game

Cultist Simulator is a game of apocalypse and yearning from Alexis Kennedy, creator of Fallen London and Sunless Sea. Play as a seeker after unholy mysteries, in a 1920s-themed setting of hidden gods and secret histories. Perhaps you're looking for knowledge, or power, or beauty, or revenge. Perhaps you just want the colours beneath the skin of the world.

In this roguelike narrative card game, what you find may transform you forever. Every choice you make, from moment to moment, doesn't just advance the narrative - it also shapes it.

Become a scholar of the unseen arts. Search your dreams for sanity-twisting rituals. Craft tools and summon spirits. Indoctrinate innocents. Seize your place as the herald of a new age.

In this 20-40 hour game, you'll:

  • Combine cards to tell your own story in a rich, Lovecraftian world of ambition, appetite and abomination. Corrupt your friends. Consume your enemies. There is never only one history.

  • Found a cult, dedicated to the Red Grail, or the Witch-and-Sister, or the Forge of Days. Recruit Believers and promote them to Disciples to serve as burglars, researchers, cat's-paws. Use your disciples to keep you fed - or feed on your disciples.

  • Unravel arcane, unacknowledged mysteries. Translate grimoires and glean their lore. Locate and pillage the Star Shattered Fane. Penetrate the realm of the Hours, and win a place in their service. Perhaps - if you are very cunning - you may even glimpse the Mansus.

  • Outwit rivals, investigators and the increasingly suspicious Authorities. Your own altered Appetites may force you to act abominably, but your Cause must not be stopped.

  • Transcend death with a story-driven legacy system. Perhaps your inheritors will complete the Rite of the Crucible Soul. Perhaps they'll find peace in a pleasing career. Perhaps they'll bring the Dawn.

Recommended but it is required of you to try different things and fail until you make it, be aware. The game is a card game so there is no action but the story is good and will keep you engaged if you like trial and error and are willing to sunk in a lot of hours in order to progress a bit

Merciless card game focused on real-time time-management, with no hand-holding. Making sense out of the game and setting make for a lot of the engagement factor, but ultimately it ends up being solid IMO.

Tough but fun strategy game

Fanatical User
Verified purchase
Honestly, this game needs a lot of explanation but it is fun once you get the hang of it. It definitely is complicated but in the spirit of any great strategy game, isn't that exactly what you want?

Not Recommended

Onewhoturns
This game clearly wasn’t made for me. I’d recommend looking into it pretty thoroughly before purchasing, as the whole point of the game is that you receive absolutely no directions to how to play or any explanation whatsoever. Great for people who like being thrown into the deep end with no explanation of goal, rules, meaning of symbols or words or timers, but maybe not ideal for others.
