Every single person who works on video games is well aware of the fact that it is simply impossible to fulfill everyone’s expectations. Players are facing challenges regardless of how well-thought-out the gameplay concept may or may not be. This time, there were remarks that were not positive regarding the visual world of Cult of the Lamb, which Wojtek reviewed specifically for you. The email’s sender was surprised to get a reaction from the game’s publisher, Developer Digital, in which the developers of the game are accused of propagating heresy. This accusation came as a surprise to the sender of the email.
An atmosphere conducive to the growth of cults is one of the keys to the success of Cult of the Lamb. The production value is highly regarded among gamers. In conjunction with the highly engaging rogue-lite gameplay, we have obtained another hit for this season. The publisher checked the mailbox and discovered the following message:
“You run a publishing house in Austin, Texas, in the United States. How could you ever put your faith in the accomplishment of a game that is completely heretical? It baffles me how people who call themselves Christians would advocate for something like that.”
The decision was made by Devolver Digital to respond with an answer that the critic most likely did not anticipate altogether. Here it is:
“Our shadowy Lord, He Who Waits, commanded us to carry out these actions,”

The media, where the setting and underlying presumptions of the game are most frequently mentioned, received Cult of the Lambs favorably. We pick and give up our following. The environment is essentially a caricature of an original concept, therefore the message’s author misunderstood the game’s significance. It makes no allusion to correct religions or the people who belong to them. Thus, Devolver Digital did the author a favor by keeping the author’s pen name a secret. Or is he the renowned Jack Thompson, the correctness fighter? He could use the media attention the struggle against GTA was receiving after being away for years. As you can see, religion has always served as the basis for both little and major conflicts, including those in our sector.
