Yes, you may pet your dog followers in the Cult of the Lamb

Yes, you may pet your dog followers in the Cult of the Lamb ...

It's a beautiful day in the cult. My benevolence of followers is worshipping at my shrine, their hearts full of faith after seeing my wonderful marriage to a donkey, also named Pano, just days after my first marriage to a donkey, also named Pano. They smile as they work hard, carving wood into wooden boards. It's time for me to go out, blessing my followers and extorting them for tithings.

I play as an adorable lamb given a second chance at life. A dark god rescued me from the clutches of death. I set to work dungeon crawling to gather recourses and recruit cult members all of whom are humanoid animals, just like me. I greet Thormermer the fox as he prays, and select extort tithes, so of course I do.

The Cult of the Lambs game is a cute little Easter egg that's popular in video games. However, the Cult of the Lambs version is a bit different, because all of your followers are animals of similar shape and attitude, and you can't pet any of them. It's a shame, after all.

It also fits into the game's weird, devilish sense of humor, which often combines incredibly fucked-up behaviors like ritual sacrifice and cannibalism with super-cute features like frog acolytes, cute chats, and a dedicated baa button. (Yes, you can touch a button and baa anytime, just like Strays meow button.) I'll be sure to pet the dog while making my spouse shit sandwiches.
