The eldritch... survival RPG (?) today adds a New Game+ mode in a free update, letting us continue our tale in a difficult and terrible new way. It's a right…

Cultist Simulator expands beyond immortality January 22nd

In a major free update coming to Cultist Simulator on January 22nd, victory through immortality will be just the beginning. Developers Weather Factory call this second story 'advanced mode', and it lets players resume a completed game in a very clever way. Taking control of an apostle of your now-immortal past self, your new goal is to help your old character ascend to godhood, possibly ending…

Cultist Simulator’s first DLC, The Dancer, pirouettes into stores

Much as I love Cultist Simulator's atmosphere, I've yet to come close to completing it, my character ground down by the mundanity of maintaining mortal flesh. Today's DLC, The Dancer, might yet give me a chance at victory - or something close to it. Introducing a new career path as a cabaret dancer,  those who pursue the art of dance may find it ties more…

Cultist Simulator: The Dancer will hit the floor on October 16th

Are you in the mood for dancing? If you pick up the upcoming Dancer DLC for card-o-mystery Cultist Simulator, then it won't really matter. That's your job now. Doing jigs in an occult club where "the distinction between pleasure and pain is as delicate and essential as the human skin." You can dance if you want to. Just leave your earthly friends behind.

Not including a tutorial in Cultist Simulator was “the most contentious decision of the whole project”

I'm still not sure if I actually like Cultist Simulator, but I'm definitely fascinated by it. For now at least, I've finished reading Alexis Kennedy's marvellous in-game words, but I'm not done reading about the game, and enjoying picking over Lottie Bevan's retrospective on the game. She's the other half of dev team Weather Factory, and there's one bit in particular about how she and…

Cultist Simulator will be summoned on May 31st

As someone who spends a good chunk of their time "meditating on my goal of earthly knowledge" and "studying esoteric philosophies", I'm excited to see that digital board game Cultist Simulator will offer me the chance to do both. It's an upcoming game from Alexis Kennedy, the former creative director at Failbetter who worked on Fallen London and Sunless Sea. Cultist Simulator starts you off…

Cultist Simulator brings cosmic longing to Kickstarter

Cosmic horror turns out to be a hard habit to break. Former Failbetter creative director, Alexis Kennedy, announced Cultist Simulator [official site]; a digital board game with dark gods, abominable rites and a variable grip on reality a while back. I think it was initially given a tentative release date of Halloween-ish 2017 but ended up slipping a bit and the Kickstarter (which is what prompted…

Dark Ritual: Failbetter Co-Founder’s Cultist Simulator

Former Failbetter Games creative director Alexis Kennedy is hoping to release his Cultist Simulator [official site] around Halloween next year, he's said. Since leaving the Sunless Sea and Fallen London studio, he's signed up for gigs including writing on Stellaris and for BioWare, but bless 'im he can't resist the call of unspeakable horrors from beyond the stars. Cultist Simulator is a singleplayer digital board…
