Few games make as strong a first impression as Cult of the Lamb. It had us in its thrall within a minute, and we remained enraptured for most of our 20 or so hours with the game. It’s a title that frequently delights, with an arresting tone, gruesome gameplay, and a cavalier approach to taste and decency. Only a handful of minor...

Cult of the Lamb is a cracking mix of roguelike and life sim/management that walks a dangerously thin tonal tightrope. The art style makes it look like a Saturday morning cartoon, with adorable animal characters and cute, colourful environments. However, it has a more mature edge — sacrifice, death, the dark arts, and more are happily...
In a fantastic pairing of two excellent quality, tonally-similar properties, a free crossover event between Massive Monster's Cult of the Lamb and Klei's Don't Starve Together is now live on PlayStation platforms. Players of Cult of the Lamb can look forward to a new, awesome-sounding game mode called Penitence, which forces your cult...
Are we still doing the sheep puns?

For the low, low price of your immortal soul
Cult of the Lamb returns to bring fire, faith, and steel to the anthropomorphic unbelievers in the Relics of the Old Faith update, which drops delightfully soon, on 24th April.

It's good to be baa-d
In a year rife with excellent indie games, Cult of the Lamb always stood out. Though some grow weary of the ubiquitous rogue-likes and rogue-lites these days, this game puts a unique spin on the formula to create one of 2022's most ingenious gameplay cycle. Essentially, this is a game of two halves. The first is a fairly...
Available until 10th November
A new time-limited Cult of the Lamb event is allowing you to revive dead cultists in the new Blood Moon Ritual to mark Halloween. Available until 10th November 2022, this free update returns former cult members to the land of the living, and also comes packaged with three new follower forms, four more base decorations,...
Cult of the Lamb is a great game in its own right, but its simple mini-game, Knucklebones, is a fun change of pace from all that dungeon crawling and follower sacrificing. It's a game in which two players take turns rolling six-sided dice, placing them into one of three columns and competing for points. There are very few rules, but it...
Like sheep to slaughter
God, how do these rumours gain traction? It would appear that people are incapable of using their brains. Following on from Microsoft’s insinuation that Sony is paying to keep games off Xbox Game Pass – a notion that’s already misleading, as the Redmond firm is really referring to bog-standard marketing deals – a...
