Rejoice, for it is the season of the Blood Moon in Cult of the Lamb! A limited-time event is starting today, adding some limited-time features that you don’t want to miss. The Blood Moon Festival will run from now until November 10.
In case you missed the game’s release, I’ll start with a little bit about it. Cult of the Lamb is an action roguelike game that puts players in the role of a possessed lamb saved from annihilation by a mysterious stranger. They must repay their debt by building a following in his name. Basically, they’re starting a cult. Collect resources to build new structures, perform dark rituals, and give sermons to reinforce faith. Train the flock an embark on a quest to discover the secrets of five regions. Cleanse non-believers and spread enlightenment, all to become the mighty lamb god.
If there’s any doubt in your mind about this game, check out Matt’s five-star review of the PC version. He writes that “Cult of the Lamb steps up is in the way it’s been balanced, both for gameplay and moral choices.” The game goes for less than 20 hours, but also arguable has infinite replayability.
Now to the Blood Moon Festival (the trailer above shows it off). Devotees and harvest pumpkins to unlock a brand new ritual that will raise former cult members and cast them back to the land of the living as wandering spirits. Upon their capture, the reward is new follower forms and dreadful decorations. There are three new follower forms and four base decorations to unlock, as well as a new music track.
Developed by Massive Monster and published by Devolver Digital, Cult of the Lamb is available for PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series, and Xbox One.
