The Shrouded Isle Gets a Switch Port

Kitfox Games has announced that the cult management sim The Shrouded Isle is coming to Switch on January 17th. There will also be a free demo available.

Players are the high priest of a Lovecraftian doomsday cult that hopes to reawaken their eldritch god by offering seasonal human sacrifices. You can check out a trailer above.

Appoint advisers to your inner circle, each of which have a secret Virtue and a Vice that can benefit or hinder the cult’s work. Choose who to sacrifice each season, and use inquisitors to root out heresy amongst the villagers.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

As the high priest, uncover and purge heretics to prepare for the awakening of your beloved god beneath the waves.

Now including the Sunken Sins expansion with a more robust inquiry system, lengthened campaign mode, and a new purification tower mechanic, cinematic ending, art, additional events, personality traits and… madness…?

Key Features

  • Villagers with secret, randomly assigned virtues and vices create a different strategy every time.
  • Carefully choose who to serve as your advisors, as one of them must be your sacrifice at season’s end.
  • Rename villagers at whim, and thereby sacrifice simulacrums of your friends, family, or followers.
  • 6 different colour schemes available.
  • Search out the true heretics with unforgivable sins, to quiet the voices in your dreams.
  • Find all seven cinematic endings and meet your Lord’s expectations of purity.

The Shrouded Isle is also available on Windows PC and Mac via Steam and the Humble Store for $9.99, and its currently 50% off.
