Team17 Digital have announced that Sole Survivor Games’ management sim, Honey, I Joined a Cult, will enter Early Access next year.
Honey, I Joined a Cult is a management sim set in the 1970s about creating and managing your own crazy cult. Build your cult headquarters, recruit new acolytes, and send cultists out on missions to advance your ideology.
You can find the Steam Early Access announcement trailer below.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:
Take control of your own 1970s cult – build and expand your base, manage your resources and make as much money out of your loyal followers as possible.
Every great cult needs great interior design. Place, design and decorate rooms to keep your cultists happy. There is a whole host of weird and wonderful room options, each with a vital role to play in your cult. From polygraph rooms and spirit chambers to energy spas and the dreaded ministry of alteration.
Customize Your Cult
A cult is only as good as its name. Choose yours wisely when picking for your cult, cult leader, the Divine Being that they worship, the Holy Room in which they prove their dedication and the followers that will become the cultists of tomorrow! Make your cult your own by deciding on:
*A funky symbol
*A weird uniform to impress would-be followers
*An imposing hat to make other cults jealous
*A strange relic to worship and adore
Manage Your Cult
Being snappy dressers isn’t enough, your cult must run like a well-oiled hypno wheel. Set schedules for your cultists, level them up and manage food and maintenance systems. Assign tasks to your cultists based on a priority system, who said micro-management doesn’t work?!
Care For Your Cult
Cultists have needs too and you’ll have to ensure that all of yours are fed, watered and having lots of fun! You must take care of your cult’s physical and mental well-being to allow them to be the best cult members they can possibly be!
Grow Your Cult
Use all of your charms to recruit followers who will bring in resources and eventually climb through the ranks to become full cultists. Discontented followers will leave, so be sure to turn that frown upside down!
Lead Your Cult
Your cult leader can be very demanding. Whether it’s recruiting specific followers or building certain rooms, be sure to bend to their every whim. Not fulfilling demands will lower thier mood and a displeased leader won’t be able to perform effective sermons.
Cultists can be sent on missions in the local town. Whether it’s gathering resources, unlocking new tech or just a demand from your leader, the Covert Ops room is the perfect place to plan!
Honey, I Joined a Cult enters Early Access in 2021 for Windows PC via Steam.
