MAY #2: KNOWL

Anyway, this post has gone on long enough. Next sprint, a MYSTERIOUS FIGURE arrives at Weather Factory’s doorstep at the start, and I go home for my mum’s birthday at the end. It’s like a Harry Potter novel, if Harry were called Lottie and wasn’t magic.

Cultist Simulator Updates/Fixes for May: Research makeover!

Finally, you might have noticed that both Skills and HQs are involved in the research mechanic, because this change is what we were leading up to. So high-end Reason and Passion skills now finally have a proper use, and swapping HQs is now a lot more than just flavour.

Another biggie this sprint has been Claire announcing release dates! Cultist hits its first year anniversary at the end of May, so we’re releasing a conglomeration of all content + soundtrack that we’re calling the Anthology Edition. This’ll launch along with (probably) the Priest and Ghoul DLC on

APR #1: HESSELIUS

Hesselius, as of course you all know, is a central character in Sheridan Le Fanu’s Gothic short story ‘Green Tea’, on which I once based an excellent (and tokophobic) Call of Cthulhu TRPG. With print-outs and Japanese telephone recordings and everything. And now that you’ve received eight times your daily dose of nerdery, on to this sprint’s news.

Anyway, life should return to normal development next sprint, so watch out for in-progress assets, some news on our future projects PERHAPS, and a host of other gothic things. We are er on a BFI panel and going to Latvia for a conference but APART from that of course, we’re 100% back on devving…

Next sprint’s a bit of a squib for Alexis and myself, who are off to GDC for a week of dev talks, dev meets and definitely no alcohol whatsoever. Claire will be holding down the fort in our absence so ALL OF YOU BEHAVE YOURSELVES. ‘Til next time!

These’ll come out at the same time at the end of May, as part of our ‘Cultist Simulator Is One Year Old OMG UWU’ celebrations. Perpetual Edition owners will, of course, get both DLCs for free, and we’ll post more details about the Legacies as we get through ’em.

Irish Introductions: The Sassy Legend of St. Brigid’s Cloak

Oh hi there folks, I’m interrupting your usual blog broadcast from Lottie and Alexis to introduce myself. I’m Claire and I support the Marketing and PR for Weather Factory and have been slowly using techniques I learned off the telly, to convince Sulo and Chi to run away with me.

In the meantime, we’ve a jazzy 25% sale off on Cultist across Steam, Humble and GOG, and those new Apostle Legacies are waiting for ya whenever you feel a surge of masochism coming on. As ever, sales tend to punch our reviews in the face, so if you have an inkling of joy in your heart for the Wood, the House and the Dawn…

MERRY CHRIMBLETIDE, BELIEVERS! This is your final culty stop before 2019, the year in which the original Blade Runner was set. Where the HECK are my neo-noir Rachael outfits, eh? Or at least the triumphant return of shoulder pads?!
