The player can become the leader of a cult in these games, but is it easy to run a group of people who follow your every order?
Some games may be called “cult classics,” but others actually let players join cults and direct what the other people in the cult do. In recent years, these Lovecraftian-themed games have become very popular. Players have the power to give their followers different jobs to do in order to wake up an elder god or simply sacrifice someone.
Note that this list tries to focus on games where the player can control a cult either as the main game mechanic or as a side quest. Mods are not included in this piece. So, these are the games that let the player become the leader of a cult.
