Honey, I Joined A Cult is a resource management strategy game where you create and manage your own 1970s Cult whilst listening to funky music.

Honey, I Joined a Cult puts players in charge of creating, operating, and growing a cult in the funky 1970s, from choosing the organizations symbols, relics, and merchandise, to recruiting new acolytes and deciding where the toilets should be at the compound.

Build and expand your base, manage your resources and make as much money out of your followers as possible.

As players will discover, successful cults take hard work; in addition to establishing and evolving the organization, the leader’s ego must also be kept in check. And of course, not everybody is going to agree with the newly founded group; players will have to deal with rival cults, nosy investigative journalists, and even the government in their ultimate mission to convert the masses to their cause.

Team17 and Sole Survivor Games announced that Honey, I Joined a Cult will be will be ascending out of Steam Early Access and into version 1.0 on November 3, 2022.

During Steam Early Access, Honey, I Joined a Cult has launched three major content updates, expanding the variety of cults and game mechanics. Most recently, the Peace & Love update introduced six new themed rooms, two brand new endings to explore, new outfits, and a rework of the tutorial and prestige system. In March 2022, the Futurist Update took Honey I Joined a Cult to the final frontier, introducing new themed rooms, special characters and missions, new items, and updates to the Divine Inspiration and Research Tech trees.

Key Features:

  • Exploit your followers: Strange and exciting quack therapies offer great opportunities to extract cash from the gullible.
  • Take full control of a funky cult: Recruit cultists to maintain the organisation’s smooth operation; keep them entertained and happy to grow your money and influence.
  • Build ‘freaky deaky’ bases: Build the cult from the ground up and design the layout from ‘hypno-chambers’ and bathrooms to monoliths and bedrooms.
  • Branch out into the community: Send minions out to spread the good word, or just get them to steal fancy items for your cult HQ.
  • Stick it to ‘The Man’: Overcome threats from law enforcement, oppressive government bodies, and misinformed protesters.
  • Get down with deities: Choose where your cult’s heading – world peace or the second coming of the Squid Lord?

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Honey, I Joined a Cult is coming to PC (Steam) on November 3, 2022 for $21.99 / €21.99 / £17.49.
