Cult of the Lamb Invites You to Slay Monsters & Build an Adorable Cult

Cult of the Lamb trailer animated announcement Massive Monster Devolver Digital

Ah, Devolver Digital, the video game publisher that helps launch creative and unique titles. Case in point: Cult of the Lamb, an upcoming action game / cult builder that received an animated announcement trailer for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC via Steam.

Feast your eyes on the spirited footage below:

Cuddly and satanic. What a combination!

The indie game also has an official website. However, there isn’t much there besides a trailer and the option to wishlist the title on Steam. At least you can view an earlier trailer below that actually contains some gameplay:

What Is My Purpose (in Cult of the Lamb)?!

If you are wondering what the game is about, Devolver Digital has a pretty succinct summary in the video description:

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.

Collect and use resources to build new structures, perform dark rituals to appease the gods, and give sermons to reinforce the faith of your flock.

Explore a sprawling, randomly generated world, fight off hordes of enemies and defeat rival cult leaders in order to absorb their power and assert your cult’s dominance.

Train your flock and embark on a quest to explore and discover the secrets of five mysterious regions. Cleanse the non-believers, spread enlightenment and perform mystical rituals on the journey to become the mighty lamb god.

Am I… am I the baddy? I think I’m doing evil things.

Cult of the Lamb looks like quite a fun time. I don’t think there has ever been a video game where you start a cult, so developer Massive Monster may be breaking new ground. You can count my interest piqued, and I’ll surely be downloading the title when it releases this year on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC via Steam.
