Weather Factory have today released the final set of DLC for Cultist Simulator, their crazy roguelike narrative card game. Along with a new Anthology Edition that includes everything! Additionally, their next game BOOK OF HOURS has been announced.

The two new story-focused DLC packs "The Priest" and "The Ghoul" can be picked up separately for existing owners, it's free for those who own the Perpetual Edition or you can pick up the Anthology Edition to get everything together now.

Also, a note about sales. For Cultist Simulator, Alexis Kennedy noted on Twitter that Linux accounted for 0.4%, with Mac at 1.8%. In a follow-up Twitter post, they mentioned that they support Linux/Mac thanks to Unity and both systems tend to pledge to Kickstarters. They also said it probably wouldn't have been practical if it wasn't for Unity and the Kickstarter.

You can pick up Cultist Simulator on Humble Store, GOG or Steam.

As for BOOK OF HOURS, it's "an elegant, melancholy, combat-free RPG set in an occult library" which started off as a bit of a joke on their Twitter. The idea was vastly more popular than they thought it would be, so now it's going to be a very real game but a lot more relaxed than Cultist Simulator it seems.

I did speak to Claire Sharkey, the head of marketing from Weather Factory earlier this month, who confirmed to me that BOOK OF HOURS will support Linux once again just like Cultist Simulator.

BOOK OF HOURS will be getting a Kickstarter funding campaign later this year, for those seriously interested they will be pushing out info to their mailing list. You can also wishlist/follow it on Steam.

I'm fairly surprised by the low Linux statistic. In fact I feel it is so low, I suspect that something is off (i.e. There has been a calculation error or human error somewhere in the chain. Maybe not including results from other stores?)

Personally, I own Cultist Simulator (in my Steam account) and have played it on Linux. It has featured quite regularly on GOL getting Linux exposure. It was in a Humble Monthly, which should have attracted all sorts of buyers, including Linux ones. Also, it is DRM-Free on GOG which would attract Linux players who (a) don't favour Steam, and (b) are dead-set against DRM.

Seems from the birdsite it is the Steam numbers, so if anything is off there then it's on Steam's end.
