cult of the lambthe roguelite adventure game my boxAri Notis himself, called “giddy original” in his review, is developing the unwavering faith of his followers. But I haven’t played the game yet, released on August 11, so as an unshaven California girl in the ’60s, I need someone to show me the light. What better place to find it than on Steam?
hm. The sun, its reflection in the ocean waves, and the battery-powered lights inside this 2004 Polly Pocket party bus are perhaps purer sources of metaphorical and physical light than Steam. They are also hands down better save sites than most gaming websites (said respectfully as someone with an active Reddit account).
But Polly Pocket can’t tell me everything I need to know about cult of the lamb, like the way the game’s dazzlingly colorful gameplay blends construction simulation elements, role-playing elements, and a randomly generated world for a story focused on becoming a popular and powerful lamb god. Polly Pocket has no brain.
cult of the lambexcitingly, it is attractive to both hell Y animal crossing fans. I like it hellthe game uses repetition to build and expand its universe, which is filled with curled-up, googly-eyed creatures like animal crossing. The titular lamb, possessed yet still cute, is like a TikTok content creator, except he might be incorrectly seen as more worthy of worship since he doesn’t have the thumbs to commit tax fraud. However, the lamb remains a selfish manipulator, and the game fiendishly prompts its players to question whether being a hollow shell with a flock is more fun than they’d like it to be.
Me my box co-workers gave cult of the lamb two hooves up, and on Steam, the majority of the 18,342 reviews, at the time of writing, are enthusiastic about the cause. So look around you sheep, this is what you’re meant for.
Many of the positive reviews are about poop, which is an important part of growing up for any cult member. healthy diet.
There are some non-believers. Mainly, players are frustrated with the bugs in the game (which the developers seems to be actively working).
Some faith just needs to be blind.
