APR #1: THE HERMIT

Appropriately named sprint, eh? It makes me a little worried that our upcoming sprints are IMMORALITY and JUSTICE but May #2 is KING ARTHUR so here’s hoping. The big news this sprint is we moved house! 😱 Alexis has started a sourdough culture he refers to only as “The Bred Möther”, and inspired by our […]

MAR #3: GUYON

Hey, Believers! Hope you’re all doing okay in lockdown. It’s not fun, is it? Lancing this cloud of gloom like a wafer through ice-cream are the Priest and Ghoul DLCs, which launched on mobile yesterday. They’re available as £1.99 IAPs, and Cultist Simulator is 50% off for a week on the App Store and Google […]

MAR #2: FLORIMELL

Iiiiiit’s heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere! 😱 The long-awaited Tarot of the Hours is finally available in the Church o’ Merch! For £30 + shipping you can get your probably not entirely innocent hands on your very own hand-numbered tarot deck, granting you ultimate insight into the House without Walls. Thanks for being patient while I sorted ’em. <3 […]

MAR #1: EDMUND

MAR #1: EDMUND

Happy March, everyone! The grass is greening, the sun is shining and the global pandemic of COVID-19 continues to prowl the streets. Hey ho. First things first: WE’VE BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE IMGAs! They’re big mobile awards so we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that we’re shortlisted for some of the genre categories, but if […]

FEB #2: DUESSA

Happy grimmest month of the year, Beloveds! I have an announcement that might cheer you up. I’m not going to go into detail, but I *am* going to confirm that we’re working on some ✨ NEW CULTIST CONTENT ✨ that I’ll be able to talk more about next sprint. For now, I’ll leave you only […]

STATE OF THE FACTORY: YEAR 2

STATE OF THE FACTORY: YEAR 2

Once again, here’s how Weather Factory is doing, here’s how we thought we’d be doing, and here’s what we’re doing next. Welcome to this year’s Giant Summary Post! This is almost twice the length of the post-2018 State of the Factory, because a lot happened. Come for the kitten pictures, stay for the data. As […]

FEB #1: CALIDORE & THE BLATANT BEAST

This sprint was truer to its name than expected! We took some holiday at the start because Alexis had booked a Secret Early Valentine’s Event for me. It turned out not to be a candlelit vigil in a graveyard sentineled by moon-crows, as I had first suspected. Nor was it an anatomically accurate papier-mâché heart-sculpting […]

JAN #2: BRITOMART

Happy allegory, everyone! Britomart, as any fule kno, is one of the many faces of Elizabeth I in The Faerie Queene, representing chastity, which Spenser shoe-horned in late on in the writing process as it became more and more apparent that Elizabeth wasn’t going to marry anyone. Britomart falls in love with the frankly underwhelming […]

GAME-MAKING’S SENSE OF LOSS

[ I wrote the article below for Wireframe, a British game dev magazine which ‘lifts the lid on video games’. And, inexplicably, lets me have a monthly column. This one’s from Issue #5, in January 2019. ] Following the last, wheezy gasps of 2018, I’ve been thinking about endings. Fewer players seem to ‘finish’ titles […]

JAN #1: ACRASIA
