“While clear and proudly inspired by its Build engine inspiration, Cultic already delivers a solid transfusion of new ideas into that body.”
PC Gamer

“Chapter One is already an exceptional first-person shooter, a rock-solid foundation that I’m excited to see sole developer Jason Smith build upon.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“With top-notch presentation and horror aesthetics, Cultic does enough to stand out in the heap of excellent retro-style shooters.”

About This Game

Rise up. Fight back.

Gear up to fight your way through the ranks of an insidious cult. Their wretched minds twisted by the will of an unseen entity, you'll find just as much lead flying back as you dish out, so you'll have to run, slide, dodge, and make use of your environment to survive in this old-school-inspired shooter.

CULTIC: Chapter One includes 10 maps full of blood, grit, and of course, cultists. After completing the story, you can test your skills in the wave-based Survival Mode, also included with Chapter One.

Get a taste of Chapter Two with the newly added Interlude story map!

Chapter Two will be available as paid DLC at a future date, and will continue the story of CULTIC!

CULTIC gives you the freedom to approach combat your way. You can run in guns blazing, running, jumping, sliding, and dodging to keep out of harms way. If you prefer a slower approach, you can lay traps, let your enemies come to you, and pick them off from the safety of cover. Maybe you prefer to weave in between your foes, leading their attacks towards each other, and turning them against one another. With a full arsenal of mid-century firearms and explosives, you'll be well equipped to slaughter everything in your path - provided you don't get slaughtered first.

Combat in CULTIC is fast and deadly. Well-placed shots can take your enemies - and yourself - out of the game quickly. Keep on the move or stick to cover, and use your arsenal wisely to stay alive as you fight your way through cult territory.

CULTIC was styled to feel like a throwback to the shooters of yore, but with the advantages of a modern engine, such as physics, lighting, and a fully 3D game world. The gameplay, audio design, and art are all stylized to create a unique experience.
