Team17 and Sole Survivor Games have today announced that groovy cult management sim Honey, I Joined a Cult, will be ascending out of Steam Early Access and into version 1.0 on November 3rd. Inviting players to cultivate their very own following, Honey, I Joined a Cult places players as the tycoon of their own cult. Design everything from the ground up, from the deity followers worship to the location of the discombobulator – everything is in the player’s hands. Designing the cult’s base is but the first step to divinity; players will also need to balance the books with a host of dubious and expensive therapies for their followers. Law enforcement, government agencies, and angry protesters will also need their meddling mitigated, and the leader’s ever-growing ego kept in check.
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.
