Cult of the Lamb developer Large Monster stated final week that the upcoming Sins of the Flesh update, slated to go reside in early 2024, is not going to be “the intercourse update.” However now it seems like possibly it will likely be.
Hopeful hypothesis in regards to the insertion of intercourse into Cult of the Lamb was pushed by the title of the update, naturally, and likewise a chunk of official artwork that depicted a gathering of cute forest cultists clothed in nothing however a strategically positioned leaf. That nearly instantly sparked a dialog within the Steam boards, and by “dialog” I imply folks principally demanding that it truly occur.
Large Monster finally stepped in to carry cause to the proceedings. “Don’t be concerned, the ‘intercourse update’ is extra of a meme locally,” one developer stated in response to at least one Steam consumer apprehensive that they would not be capable to play a game about performing darkish rituals and killing non-believers in entrance of their children any extra. “One some individuals are actually working with ^^; the age score hopefully will not change after this update, as we made positive content material adheres to pointers. Clearly everyone seems to be totally different however I doubt you will not be capable to play in entrance of your children if you happen to do already!”
Shockingly, that didn’t douse the fires of need.
Large Monster then determined to play ball: It dedicated to including intercourse to the game if it reached a minimum of 300,000 followers on Twitter by the tip of the yr. It was an awfully excessive bar to achieve, the type of purpose you’d set if you happen to actually did not need to do no matter was being wagered: As of November 1 (through the Wayback Machine), Large Monster had simply 283,000 followers.
However that is the web, and everyone knows what occurred subsequent: The purpose was crushed, and apparently, the intercourse is coming.
Oof, that solely took 2 hours Appears like we’re including Intercourse to Cult of the Lamb. 🥵💦Let’s intention for the very starting of 2024! https://t.co/Fqc6ZYqtII pic.twitter.com/H5N5ElSpMcNovember 28, 2023
How it will work, I have no idea. How do you even depict cute cartoon animals doing the nasty? Sims-style blurring? Hand-drawn “censored” indicators over the naughty bits? Or do you benefit from Steam’s permissiveness and simply let ‘er rip in graphic, Full Monty glory? Writer Devolver Digital was not useful on that entrance: “The cult is ever-changing,” a rep stated. “Not even the Lamb can predict what the longer term holds.”
Nonetheless it shakes out, one factor’s for positive: The followers are completely happy.
