Did you ever look at Cultist Simulator and think it was just too easy? No, us neither, but here we are.
“NORMAL MODE IS UNFORGIVING, ADVANCED MODE IS BASICALLY UNFAIR,” reads the press release. That’s probably a fair assessment.
Cultist Simulator, the superbly unsettling computer card game, is tough, it’s true. But if you’ve completed the game – such as it is – and you were hoping for a new game plus mode? You’ve been out of luck.
But as of January 22nd, 2019, Cultist Simulator will receive an “advanced mode” which is free for all players, but entirely optional. You’ll unlock this new mode after completing the main game, so it’s basically a new game plus mode by a different name. Legends say that it will make the game more difficult for veteran players, but how?
- MAJOR VICTORIES: You achieved immortality? Well done. Now, the hard bit. Play as your own Apostle, executing a doomsday plan to make your immortal character something like a god. Pursue the path of Grail, Lantern or Forge. Assemble the Great Feast; open a door into light; or Bring the Dawn.
- MOAR LORE: Delve even further into the rich lore of Cultist Simulator. What is the Dawnbreaker Device? Where is the flaw in the world to be found? What is the Third Mode of the Tricuspid Gate? Who are the avid, ancient, brilliant women who call themselves the Ligeians… and why are they helping you?
- IMMORTAL ENEMIES: They’re here to prevent your greater ascension, and add challenge and replay value while they’re at it. These powerful NPCs make Detectives and Rivals look like playground bullies. See your loved ones kidnapped; your finances shredded; your affairs exposed to the public; your dreams become a battleground. Confront them in person, if you dare.
(We copied that bit from the press release. We wouldn’t generally choose to write the word “moar” but who are we to argue with the splendrous wordpeddlers behind Cultist Simulator?)
In other Cultist SImulator news, the game’s original soundtrack – from the composer behind Fallen London and Sunless Seas – will be released on the same day. The 15-track soundtrack will be available from Steam, Humble, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Bandcamp, priced at £7.99 / $9.99.
