'Cult Of The Lamb' Sells Over One Million Copies In Its First Week, Updates/Bug Fixes Coming

by Rainier on Aug. 18, 2022 @ 10:12 a.m. PDT

Cult Of The Lamb is an adorably dark game about running a cult in a crumbling world of ritual and ruin, utilizing a powerful gameplay loop of base building and dungeon crawling.

Start a cult, grow your flock, cleanse the non-believers. Repeat.

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.

The decisions you make as leader will determine how your followers see you - will you be loved or feared?

O Lamb, glorious and majestic, euphoric are we, your 1 million faithful, to bask in the word of The One Who Waits.

Charismatic developer Massive Monster and their faithful followers at Devolver Digital are overjoyed to announce that Cult of the Lamb’s unholy congregation has swelled, with over 1 million followers converted in its first week of sale.

Critical acclaim preceded Cult of the Lamb’s arrival, the likes of which burns positive sentiment into the annals of video game history, but Lo, the faithful community hath spoken of struggles - bugs and all manner of fiendish things that must be eliminated.

Massive Monster is listening. Actively engaging with their loyal community, the developers are hard at work prepping a multitude of fixes, improvements and general housekeeping that they hope will continue to spread positivity throughout the land. Those followers wishing to provide feedback may do so via this public confession booth.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has become a believer over these last seven days. The team is excited about what the future holds and will soon share a content roadmap for updates in honor of The One Who Waits.
