Mini Review: Cultist Simulator

Unfortunately this is completely impenetrable. Badly needs a tutorial and a lot of work on the interface. It’s about a person’s life, represented by cards & timers. You drag a job card to the work board & a timer counts down. This also applies to things like study, dream and explore cards. Cards have tags like ‘location’ or ‘passion’. The idea is great, but it’s horribly implemented which is a real shame as it looked interesting. Nothing explains how to play, what cards mean or how to use them. I’ve tried to play it 3 times and had to give up; there’s a lot of micro managing, and searching through cards to find something you can use with something else. Music is beautiful though.
