Cultist Simulator, the complicated yet engrossing game from Weather Factory and Humble Bundle is going to get even bigger on May 30th.

Weather Factory just recently announced a new "esssssoteric DLC" with the Priest and Ghoul. By the sounds of it, these will be two different packs with their own story-focused content. The Priest will introduce a new obscure religion, one whose followers "are as gruesome as they are zealous" and the Ghoul follows "the life of a nocturnal bodysnatcher who just really needs those corpses for definitely acceptable things" both of which sound quite exciting.

This special Anthology Edition will be available on Humble, GOG and Steam at 10AM PDT / 6PM BST on May 30th. They will also be putting it on sale at the same time with 15% off. If you missed it, our contributor Scaine did a review of the original game and his video can be seen below:

They also announced they're working on a new game, with details on that to follow as it seems development on Cultist Simulator is coming to a halt now. They seem to have done well though, as they managed to pass over 100K units sold as they details in this write-up. Will post information about their new game when I have it.

In other words they'll quit working on this one soon. Remember their big "Game and all DLC we'll ever release if you pre-order now" deal? Yeah, that's like three small pieces of DLC and you can get everything by buying that final edition as well? Probably soon at a lower price? Yes, that and that the game is pretty bad is why it's the last time I've fallen for something like that.

I don't know if you can say that the game is bad. I for change enjoyed the game, but it is really different from anything I played before. There are plenty of things you need to watch and you can get pretty lost sometimes, but it's always rewarding when you open up something new you didn't knew about before.

Tell me you wouldn't fall for something like that if Paradox offered it.

I really do appreciate that they did something different. Unfortunately it didn't turn out to be a good game. That would have been fine, but it's the UI that makes it a bad game. I had about a hundred ideas on how to improve it for the release version. They addressed some of the issues, but many remain. My thought back then was that it couldn't be properly fixed without dropping the free-form table metaphor.

I wouldn't. I'm holding off on BattleTech until it is complete and finished. Not at all interested in their other games. I bought Stellaris once, and in hindsight that was a mistake.

Dude. Way to sidestep the joke.
