Now here’s a game that’s unlike anything else you’ll find on Steam. Cultist Simulator finds you as a “seeker of unholy mysteries” in a Lovecraftian 1920s setting, in which you can start your own religion, pull in unwitting followers, and, well, summon extraterrestrial deities.
Cultist Simulator comes from Alexis Kennedy, best known for gems like Fallen London and Sunless Sea, and it’s a card-based game with a twist. Rather than wield cards competitively, you’ll use and combine them to craft the storyline around your cult, command disciples to do unspeakable acts, evade authorities, and preserve your legacy. It looks fascinating if you’re willing to put in the time to explore its narrative depths. You can buy it on Steam.
