The BOOK OF HOURS countdown calendar
I’ll update this calendar every day once we’re live with the Daily Thing, but follow our channels for live updates! If you want BOOK OF HOURS to do well at Kickstarter, please also consider sharing ’em with your followers and communities. The better the KS goes, the better BOOK OF HOURS will be! Probably!
Cultist Simulator mobile: the all-singing, all-dancing data dump
I intend to experiment further with other platforms, but have no official news on the subject right now! Let me know your thoughts on our data above, and if you have any additional numbers you’d like to see. Hope our figures prove useful for devs considering mobile porting themselves. 🙂
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.
APR #2: ISABELLA
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.
MAR #3: GLYDE
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…
The Busiest Week of Our God Damned Lives
We haven’t posted for a bit, and I don’t think Lottie is going to manage a sprint update this week unless she works over the weekend which she definitely ain’t doing, so I wanted to talk about what’s been happening. It’s a lot.
Marketing Hot take: The value of community.
The merits of community to the success of any art project – especially in the indie space – are obvious. This post is meant for anyone that would like some general insight into what I believe are the intentions needed when creating a community for your game. I apologise in advance for how many times I say “community”. I’d replace that with “cults” but we don’t...
MAR #1: EDWIN DROOD
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!
FEB #2: DORIAN
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.
JAN #2: BELLE DAME
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…
