Cult of the Lamb is the most straightforward underdog story in video game history, a fantastic game with a weird concept packaged in an adorable package. It's claimed the players and reviewers are all agreeing since the game has passed the 1 million-player mark within a week of its release.
Massive Monster's developers have promised players to maintain the game's quality, including fixings for common issues, as well as free major content updates.
In its first week, The Lamb has blessed 1 million players! We are forever grateful for your loyalty and our team is committed to improving the game with tweaks, fixes, and free major content updates. This is only the beginning as this Cult will flourish!
If you had told people who were unaware that the biggest game of the year would be a roguelike/urban/farm builder game in which the player controls a baby sheep whose sole purpose is to form their cult and hack their way through hordes of unbelievers in January, you would have probably raised an eyebrow or two. However, the mish-mash of styles and themes works, from the game's shady bosses to the extremely adorable animation style used for you
The game's tense combat system, as well as the random dungeon generation that makes up the game's combat sections, all contribute to a solid hit, and Massive Monster and publisher Devolver have had a huge response to the game.
There is currently no information on what the developers will add to the game, aside from a simple game that is already so compelling, it's hard to imagine a world where a free content update would not generate even more players for Cult of the Lamb.
Cult of the Lamb is available on Steam, GOG.com, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
