Though I have some minor quibbles about the game's interface, I find myself returning to its world again and again.

Cultist Simulator won't be for everyone as the learning curve is fairly steep and it is a pretty unforgiving game. Anyone who loves puzzles, interesting games and solid narrative will find a lot to love.

At the end of the day, the one thing I can definitively say is that it is a game that I enjoyed, but also one where I can very well understand if others dislike it.

Cultist Simulator forges card game mechanics with a branching cosmic horror story, but exactly how well do these elements blend together?

As far as I can tell, the game is deterministic, and if you play correctly, when you learn what playing correctly even IS, then you shall succeed and ascend to your rightful place.
