Sole Survivor Games and publisher Team17 announced today a brand new funky take on the cult management simulator genre with Honey, I Joined a Cult. The developer’s debut title will start recruiting players into early access early next year.
Get out those bell-bottom jeans and become a cult leader in this 1970s-based game. Players are tasked with all the wonderful duties that come with being a cult leader of their very own cult. Of course, to have a cult one will need to recruit new followers and acolytes. A cult will also need a place to base their organization so a super groovy headquarters will need to be designed. Lastly, the cult needs a focus on what they actually worship which affects their tech tree.
Increasing the influence of the organization will help it grow. As the cult expands new challenges will arise both internally and externally. But players should be aware of the meddling menacing media and the constantly inflating ego of the leader.
Players can stick it to the man by dealing with oppressive government bodies. There are also rival heretical cults to watch out for, but if one designs their base of operations right those hypno chambers and monoliths will keep recruits in check. Missions and challenges help unlock additional resources to keep the cult thriving and flourishing.
Honey, I Joined a Cult will launch into early access on Steam in 2021. Interested future cult leaders can wishlist the game on Steam. More information about Honey, I Joined a Cult can be found on the game’s developer website here.
