    Overview

    Cult of the Lamb is a horror-fantasy third-person action-adventure / colony management game developed by Massive Monster and published digitally by Devolver Digital for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 11, 2022.

    Set in a land of anthropomorphic animals and other creatures (demonic and otherwise), Cult of the Lamb puts players in the role of a lamb who is saved from sacrifice by a mysterious demonic entity ("The One Who Waits") and is tasked with forming a loyal following in the entity's name. Possessed by the Red Crown given by the entity, the lamb has demonic supernatural powers to help them fight non-believers, strengthen the cult, and seek revenge on the four heretical prophets that sacrificed them.

    Much of the game is split between managing the cult's village and venturing out into small dungeon-crawling "crusades", both of which use a clock with a day/night cycle. As players progress through the game, they unlock new places to visit, new buildings to help automate the village, new perks to ease gameplay, and bonus activities (such as fishing and gambling).

    Much of the game's action comes from performing runs through a series of linked dungeons to defeat enemies, gain resources, and acquire new followers to indoctrinate. Similar to other "rogue-lites", players start off with random gear and must progress through each procedurally-generated dungeon, with death ending the run prematurely.
