Released on August 11, Cult of the Lamb gives players an “addictive” experience from the lamb cult.
Before evaluating Cult of the Lamb, many people are probably wondering what kind of game this is? Maybe this will be a game that simulates the management of a sect or a religion of sheep? The answer is both yes and no.
True because Cult of the Lamb will offer management sims and incorrect because that experience is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many other interesting elements and features hidden under Cult of the Lamb.
Let’s take a look at the interesting points of this game with Tin Game Channel!
Cult of the Lamb main content
Cult of the Lamb puts players in the role of a sheep who is a leader of a cult that has just been resurrected from a captive god called The One Who Waits. From there, the sheep must pay off the debt by building a cult with a large number of loyal followers to free The One Who Waits.
Players will start their own cult in a land of false prophets. Explore and move to other dangerous and mysterious areas to build a base and turn a loyal community into a true cult.
Cult of the Lamb is a game of sheep in wolf clothing
Roguelike hidden under management simulation element
As noted above, Cult of the Lamb will offer the experience of setting up and managing a cult. Players will have to build structures and infrastructure for the followers of their sect. However, the resources to build those structures come from bloody crusades against the ghastly realities of this dangerous land.
Every new crusade will be a new experience for our sheep. As a roguelike dungeon crawler game, the map of each turn will always be random and of course the monsters and equipment here will also advance based on the player’s upgrades and progress.
Even so, those eye-catching killing phases only lasted a maximum of 15 to 20 minutes per turn. Then back to the base and suddenly realized that I had spent an hour building structures here. And indeed in Cult of the Lamb, you will wield hammers and build houses more than fighting swords.
It can be said that Cult of the Lamb is a cycle of killing – building – upgrading – returning to kill. Do not rush to judge this loop as boring because the combat effects as well as the character’s animation must be said to be well-designed and extremely eye-catching. It is this that has always brought satisfaction to players even though you have spent all day with this game.
She’s a sheep but likes to drink blood and eat meat
Talking about the combat of Cult of the Lamb, the game has a fairly simple combat mechanism with 4 basic interactions: move, dodge, attack and special skills. Although they are only 4 basic interactions, they have been honed and designed with the utmost care to bring efficiency and satisfaction to players.
In particular, the dodging mechanism in the game is a particularly important factor that determines the player’s life in the bloody intense crusades. Besides, during the battle, players will also encounter tarot cards, which will allow players to choose special upgrades and stats to continue their “purge” work. .
And to prevent “spiritual” players from receiving rare upgrades at the beginning of the game, right at the beginning of the crusades, the player will have to choose one of two curses. These curses mostly reduce stats or cause discomfort to the player during combat. Although many people consider this curse unfair, it actually limits the player’s ability to rush directly to the boss and continuously spam attacks to defeat the boss.
From monsters to lovely friends
After each crusade, specifically after defeating bosses with hideous sizes and appearances, those monsters will be reduced and turned into lovely companions. Companions can be recruited at the cult’s base.
These companions can do almost everything on the base from gathering resources like timber, devotions or even cleaning up the trash that the followers throw out in the base area.
Of course it wouldn’t be meaningless. Managing a sect is not only about creating faith but also about caring and caring for its followers. You will have to make sure your followers and companions are always in the best condition, you have to balance 3 main factors: food, hygiene and faith.
Once your cult reaches more than double digits, it becomes extremely difficult to track and balance these three factors. Then the companions will help you a part in managing and balancing them. Another interesting point about the followers of the cult is that if you don’t like their clothes or appearance, you can completely change them. Because you are the priest.
The perfect balance between cute and chaotic
One of the impressive points of Cult of the Lamb is the lovely design of the character, the aesthetic of chaos coupled with the cuteness and goofiness of the character creates a great perspective, a perfect balance in graphic style. Besides, the game’s soundtrack is a mixture of horror and ghost that really “haunts” players and keeps them with continuing to build their cult.
Lovely and peaceful
In Cult of the Lamb, there is a whole store of decorative items or fashion outfits for players to unlock and choose from. You can completely create a uniform for your cult. The costumes are designed in a rather lovely direction to help soothe and reduce stress for players after stressful killing scenes.
Outside of the crusades, players can access other minigames such as fishing, playing dice. There are even side quests that increase the difficulty of bosses you’ve defeated before, from which you’re back in the killing loop and base upgrade.
Chaos and spooky
Chaos and mystery are always lurking in every corner of the map, there will be hidden areas that you will accidentally discover during the game. And of course if you don’t feel chaotic enough, there is always the option to increase the difficulty to infinity.
You will be stuck in an endless loop of satisfaction with more and more dopamine released after completing a different difficulty. In general, the time to complete Cult of the Lamb is only about 13 hours, but this is only the completion time in hard mode.
You can completely increase or decrease this duration by adjusting the difficulty of the game. To evaluate Cult of the Lamb, there is probably nothing to criticize. Not to mention this is a game that is acknowledged as “for fun” by the developer. But perhaps that “for fun” product will be a strong candidate at the game awards in 2022.
