The Labyrinth Under the Skin

We took Cultist Simulator to Rezzed a week ago. Player-facing events are really useful for feedback. We got a very, very positive response, but again and again people fiddled with combinations that didn’t work. There’s a lot of trial and error, they said.

April #1: HOPKINS

Anyway, next sprint should be slightly less bonkers, so we hope to actually get some work done. Well, some more work than multiple daily patches and new art and important marketing events and oh you know. This and that.

You may have seen some of the coverage this got earlier on in the week, if you are nerds like us and read games press. Otherwise, let us REVEAL to you our launch trailer for Cultist Simulator: PENETRATE THE HOUSE.

THE EXPLORER’S BUILD

Dare you approach the very many Younger Sisters? Or brave the Soucouyants, and their oddly unbalanced gropings in the dark? The lure of the Mountains is strong; the sweet scent of the Cave of Candles finds you on the breeze; the great Eye of Ikirmawi stares unblinkingly into your dreams at night. Try – if you can – not to die on your trip.

March #3: GWENDOLEN

This sprint’s title comes from my favourite literary lady, Gwendolen Harleth in George Eliot’s Daniel Deronda. That’s a lot of names to open this blog with, but we did a lot of things, sooooo…

A compendium of the notes, extracts and books Alexis wrote as part of our Kickstarter campaign, all the way back in September ’17. Now with added visuals! Transcripts linked in the title, and if you would like to read Travellers to Italy in its full 19th-century glory, click on the image for a bigger one.

Groovy Droogs Consortium, a.k.a. March #2 FORSTER

Anyway, next up is the Explorer’s Build, due out on Monday 9th April. That’ll contain a host of new locations to explore, hazards to overcome (or, you know, be horribly defeated by), an avalanche of new tomes and manuscripts, and perhaps – just perhaps – a well-oiled door to the House itself… Stay tuned!

The Emergence of Iris

Cultist Simulator‘s emblem, mascot and herald – nicknamed Iris – has proven really good shorthand for the feel of the game, and inspired fan art in her turn.

March #1: ELIOT

He comes to visit my office quite a lot and together we shall start a cult called the Winged Worm and make it really hard for you to set that slider in Cultist Simulator‘s options menu. Thank you and goodnight.

THE MOTHER OF ANTS

“Can you pop the ants back in – or, possibly, add subtle insectoid elements to her? She already now looks slightly ant-like, with the multiple angular arms – I don’t know if this is deliberate or serendipitous.”
