“The Game That Let Me Mourn My Lost Faith”
Kotaku

“I found the overall experience to be a fun, unique experience that lends itself to a variety of play styles, giving it a good amount of replay value. With a little more polish, it could become a cult classic.”
8/10 – Darkstation

“Cults And Daggers is not a slick game. It is not an easy game to whirl your time away within. It is thoughtful, slow, laborious, and very, very specific to its audience. It is a labor of love meant for a very niche audience, just as Humble warned us it would be. And that’s why I think it’s worth looking into.”

You and the other cults are the hidden powers behind history, you secretly manipulate the rise and fall of great city states to further your ambitions.
