Now hereâ€™s a game thatâ€™s unlike anything else youâ€™ll find on Steam. Cultist Simulator finds you as a â€œseeker of unholy mysteriesâ€ 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 itâ€™s a card-based game with a twist. Rather than wield cards competitively, youâ€™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 youâ€™re willing to put in the time to explore its narrative depths. You can buy it on Steam.
