This week Devolver Digital released a new indie gem with Cult of the Lamb from Massive Monster, a game where you can create your own sect with very addictive game mechanics. Cult of the Lamb is a game that is divided into two genres, since it has a roguelite aspect and another type of life simulator, similar to the game style of Stardew Valley.
Since the Cult of the Lamb trailers were announced they have shown both aspects of the game and this may have interested fans of the roguelite genre, but if they are not prepared for the other aspect of the game they could run into an experience that was not what they expected. they were looking for.
Also: 6 features of Nissan e-power technology that explain how it works.
The story of Cult of the Lamb begins when four ancient gods sacrifice the last of the lambs, thereby trying to prevent a prophecy. This takes you to the afterlife, where “The One Who Waits” makes a deal to bring you back to life in exchange for making a cult in his name, as well as giving you a quest to assassinate the four Old Gods who imprisoned him thousands of years ago. of years.
Under this premise, your main mission is to kill the four ancient gods to free the One who waits, so the roguelite aspect is the main one. Still, growing your sect and improving the faith of your subjects can help you get better weapons and curses on your expeditions.
If you don’t like life simulators but Cult of the Lamb catches your attention because of its roguelite aspects, you should know that it is possible to finish the game by focusing entirely on expeditions into enemy territory, but it becomes a much more difficult game as you cannot improve the weapons or curses you find in the dungeons.
In conclusion, if you like roguelites but not life simulators like Stardew Valley, it is possible to play Cult of the Lamb ignoring some game mechanics, which makes the experience somewhat more difficult. Still, you can spend a bit of time on your minions between expeditions to gradually gain the necessary upgrades.
