A wonderful little game soured by myriad of bugs, Cult of the Lamb balances a basic settlement simulator with a simple rogue-lite experience.
The game will bounce the player back and forth between scouring for new followers in the dungeon, helping cultists in their base, and exploring new locations around the world. Overall the dungeon crawling is barebones and really only engaging for the first few runs, especially considering the limited difficulty. However, meeting new cultists, managing the small settlement, and coming across new individuals around the world helps to add significantly more depth to the game.
I primarily played the Cult of the Lamb around launch, so it may have improved in some aspects, but as it stands the number of bugs lowered a 9/10 score down to a 7/10 for me. Overall worth a play, but probably not 100% completion.
The visuals, puzzle boxes, and sounds are all acceptable, albeit a bit simplistic and bland. However, I can't recommend Cats in Time given how broken it is. It is currently impossible to 100% the game due to bugs, and an absolute slog to continuously have to reset worlds. If you want a more refined experience, check out their second game, Escape Simulator.
Edit: There is a workaround for the bug on Level 10: The Watermill. First, get the box attached to the hook and raised to the top as you would normally. Then use an auto clicker, such as an AHK script, on the center of the box until it zooms in. Once it's zoomed, click and hold on the box door, then rotate to open the door completely. Finally use an auto clicker on the box for a second time to obtain the cat.
