Lamb Building a Cult? I’m Sold!
Cult the Lamb has been revealed by publisher Devolver Digital, and it looks amazing. Devolver Digital always publishes some high-quality games that are just bizarre. I love it.
Cult of the Lamb is certainly bizarre. You get to play as a lamb which has to build up his cult and delve into dungeons while dealing with non-believers and false prophets. All of this is presented in an absolutely gorgeous art style. It is so cartoony, bright, and vibrant. Exactly what I want to look at as I have to sacrifice one of the cult members. You have to do what you have to do to keep your god happy.
Here is the description for Cult of the Lamb:
Cult of the Lamb casts players in the role of a possessed lamb saved from annihilation by an ominous stranger, and must repay their debt by building a loyal following in his name. 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. Every excursion into the sprawling realm reveals increasing hordes of new and more dangerous enemies, as well as rival cults whose influential leaders must be defeated in order to absorb their power and assert your cult’s dominance.
On returning to your base, you must fulfil the needs of your followers in order to receive their devotion. Use resources to build new structures, perform dark rituals to appease the gods, and give sermons to reinforce the faith of your flock. As their devotion to you grows, so too will your power, allowing you to venture further into the mysterious forest and discover more of its dark secrets.
Strange concepts like this are what I love about video games. I’m already sold.
