Cultist Simulator is a cult hit (ironically) for the PC that’s racked up over 200,000 players around the world. Today it’s been announced for mobile platforms.

It’s vaguely the 1920s and you’re a scholar of the unseen arts with high goals in life. Your plan is to launch and grow your own cult, spread its followers and take over everything. But you’re not playing a con; you will have actual magical powers at your command and hidden gods to manipulate.

Perhaps the strangest thing about Cultist Simulator is how it plays: at its core, it’s a strategy card game. You might be expecting an interface where you watch over hundreds of little Sims and give them instructions as their god — “simulator” is in the title, after all — but that’s not what you get; the strategy is in the cards.

There isn’t an exact release date as of yet for Cultist Simulator on mobile, but you can expect it sometime this spring.

Cultist Simulator is a game of apocalypse and yearning from Alexis Kennedy, creator of Fallen London and Sunless Sea. Play as a seeker after unholy mysteries in a 1920s-themed setting of hidden gods and secret histories. Become a scholar of the unseen arts. Indoctrinate innocents. Seize your place as the herald of a new age.

An indie success story first released on PC, Cultist Simulator now has captivated more than 200,000 players all over the world. It’s in the final throes of a mobile adaptation due for release this spring, and will be available in both English and Simplified Chinese.
