In her review previously this year, Sam Loveridge defined the nuts and also screws of Cult of the Lamb as “Animal Crossing meets Hades”, while hailing its visuals and also pitch-perfect discussion. She stated: “It’s somehow simultaneously cute and horrific, with monsters barfing acid and pulsating with warps and other grossness, compared to your cult folk that are tiny giraffes, unicorns, hedgehogs, cats, and other adorable critters. It’s bright and colorful, but also dark and mysterious in equal measure. It’s quite the feat to be honest, and utter screenshot fodder.”
“There’s a reason Cult of the Lamb is getting a lot of attention. The way it blends its two unique gameplay styles with those graphics makes it one you won’t want to miss. After all, do you really want to anger a god and answer to a cult?”
