Prepare to lose your mind on the move, as Cultist Simulator is coming to mobile devices.
Cultist Simulator, the first game from Weather Factory – the micro-studio comprising Failbetter founder Alexis Kennedy and alum Lottie Bevan – has been an impressive tale of success. After hitting its Kickstarter goal in under a day and scoring a publishing deal with Humble, the game has grown into a many-headed monster with free content, DLC, and new game modes.
It also made it onto our list of the most important games of 2018. In a year that featured Dad of Boy, Spider-Bloke and the Crunch Cowboys, that’s kind of a big deal.
Before the Weather Factory crew embark on their next adventures – including an ill-advised librarian simulator after Kennedy played chicken with a retweet target on Twitter – they’re not done with Cultist Simulator just yet.
OK, if this reaches 1000 RTs I will try to convince @tronbevan to let us make this
prediction: it will top out at 89 RTs and I'll look like a fool, but I've never really minded that 🙃 https://t.co/i717WNPgYn
