Cult of the Lamb review round-up

  • IGN: 8/10 "Cult of the Lamb is a wolf of a satisfying base-management game in the sheepish clothing of an approachable action-roguelite."
  • Eurogamer: Recommended "A desire to please shines throughout this charmer with a hundred moving parts."
  • Destructoid: 8.5/10 "A fascinating fusion of bite-sized roguelite action and cosy cult management."
  • PC Gamer: 82/100 "Unlike anything else, and able to meld its two disparate halves into something cohesive and satisfying. You won't feel fleeced if you buy this."
  • Polygon: No score. "Cult of the Lamb is that rare game: a fun critique of organized religion."
  • Rock Paper Shotgun: No score. "A creative mashup of roguelite and management sim with oodles of character and charm, Cult of the Lamb is a great (albeit finite) time for players with an evil streak."
