The opportunity to create the sect you’ve always dreamed of (don’t deny, we know you), and share your experience with the world by playing live on Twitch. Indeed, if you are a streamer, or even prefer to be on the other side of the screen and regularly watch live players, Digital feedback and Massive Monster have you covered.

An already cult game?
In Cult of the Lamb, you play a cute little lamb destined to be sacrificed by four Prelates. From the start of the game, however, you are saved by a superior being who entrusts you with the terrible Red Crown, on one condition: to create a cult in his name. You will therefore have to walk through randomly generated dungeons to go in search of new recruits whose lives will now be dedicated to the worship of your person.
If the game had already caught the eye of many people from the first videos thanks to a particularly polished aesthetic mixing cuteness and completely creepy atmospheres, like a bastard child of Animal Crossing and Happy Tree Friends, its many features were quick to convince us as well. Rated 17/20 in our columns, the game offers a real ingenious mix of action and management that makes it completely addictive, and perfect to play on stream. In effect, each of the followers found on the way can be fully personalized and renamed, enough to amuse many viewers who would dream of being part of the sect of their favorite streamers. That’s good, since a good number of community features have been directly integrated into the game, making it devilishly fun to do or follow on Twitch.
Develop a cult of personality
By playing Cult of the Lamb on Twitch, the streamer can decide to use an extension directly integrated into the game. To do this, he just has to activate it through the pause menu. By doing so, he will then allow all of his viewers to participate in his game in many different ways. Will they make his life hell, or on the contrary help him create the most powerful cult on the planet? The choice is theirs, and risks giving rise to interactions as funny as they are chaotic.
During the rogue-lite phase of the game, while the streamer is roaming a randomly generated dungeon in search of new followers or new materials, viewers will be able to regularly intervene without ever needing to pause the action. . They will have the possibility to vote by clicking on options to intervene in a positive or negative way. Once this vote passed, a second will intervene to specify this choice. For example, if the viewers voted for a negative intervention, they can then decide whether it will take the form of instant damage, the appearance of waves of particularly dangerous enemies, or double the amount of damage that the next opponents will do. .
This kind of votes will appear in the form of buttons directly integrated into the stream screen and will be accessible to all viewers completely free of charge. If the votes already existed on Twitch before, they often asked the streamer to pause the action while preparing it, and were limited to choices that they could have made on their own, without the help of their community. Thanks to Cult of the Lamb, it’s a whole new way to play with its community that presents itself to the world of streaming.
Note also that the features integrated into the game do not stop at the rogue-lite part, and are of course also present in the management part. Each new follower can for example be created by a member of the community who will have been selected by a draw, all once again directly integrated into the game and Twitch without the slightest pause. The viewers will also all be able to participate in the evolution of the streamer’s sect by donating chain points and transforming them into faith points, necessary for the improvement of structures and the character in the game.
While the game has just been released, Devolver Digital is already welcoming the integration of this feature and its dazzling success. In a tweet dated August 5, well before the release of Cult of the Lamb, they already presented this feature in a video showing the reaction of the few streamers who had the chance to test it in advance:
But it’s only today Clara Siacommunications manager at Devolver Digital, shared some numbers on the usage of this new feature. In particular, it reveals that more than 6,000 Twitch channels are already using the application integrated into Cult of the Lamb and that 44,000 viewers have already used it live, to create a total of almost 1,000 followers directly via chat. She also concludes by revealing that the cat has already chosen 48 times to make all the followers of their favorite streamers vomit or defecate, one of the interactions possible thanks to the integrated application.
