The quality of Cultist Simulator‘s writing and intriguing setting coupled with its arduous gameplay made me wish I was reading a surrealist novel rather than grasping at some sort of narrative with all these disparate cards. While I can appreciate the game’s own attempt at experimentation with its indefinite gameplay, tabletop format, and fragmented story, I could not find much enjoyment in constantly wondering what I was doing and asking myself why I was still playing.
Cultist Simulator is an incredible game. The minimalist graphical details actually focus the player on the narrative, drives the theme and adds to the building suspense and unease. The different story progression options are interesting and detailed and each attempt will bring new understanding, based on player experience and experimentation.
Like when a nosy detective foiled my two attempts at abducting him, but I then discovered I could share a newly-acquired dread card with him instead, scaring him into dropping his investigation. After all, I'm consumed with despair and hopelessness. Maybe it's time he was, too.
