Cultist Simulator is developed by Weather Factory, the creators of Sunless Sea and Fallen London, and it is an innovative take on card games. Cultist Simulator Mobile game, which is a story-driven imaginative experience unlike a few games were on mobile so far, touches both the card and the crafting games genres.
The story puts the player in a new, puzzling environment where initially everything looks familiar. But, this card came is unlike any seen so far as it demands the players to follow closely at the signs placed before them and place themselves into a position of a real cultist with utter devotion and ill intent.
It was ported to mobile by Playdigious, which makes, publishes, or adapts solely high-quality games, according to their official motto. Previous titles signed by Playdigious include Teslagrad, Squadd.io, Stardunk, Evoland 2, and others. Cultist simulator PC version came out in 2018. It was developed by Weather Factory and published by Humble Bundle. The game earned highly positive ratings and reviews on Steam and all over the web.
Cultist Simulator android version already scored a fantastic 4.7-star rating on Google Play from over a thousand reviewers. It reaped an even bigger success on iTunes’ App Store, where Cultist Simulator iOS scored 4.9 stars and is #7 overall card game currently.
Emotional Games Awards 2018 winning and RPS recommended, Cultist Simulator places a player in a roguelike environment. Everything the player does and sees happens with certain cards placed before him, as the game actually relies on the user’s imagination to do most of the job. And, it does so successfully as it tickles just enough to let us have the vicarious experience as we would’ve imagined it.
The Esoteric Story
Becoming a cultist is not just the banal presumption of the game, although it is an over-arching goal set for the player. In Cultist Simulator, we deal mostly with the subtleties and the details of such a life an aspiring cultist with connections to true dark power would have. We summon demons, corrupt friends, and rise in our power as we spread our influence.
The artwork and the atmosphere in the game intentionally aim for the late ‘90s mysticism and even references some names in the esoteric world. The music helps achieve the immersive experience. Cultist Simulator mobile version costs around $6.99 which is a fair deal considering its PC counterpart is still at around $25.
