Sacrifice your life and sanity in Cultist Simulator
A spooky soundtrack sells the cult vibes
Cultist Simulator’s atmosphere is constructed almost entirely by its haunting soundtrack and sound design. The visual design of Cultist Simulator is focused, but would be significantly less effective without its fantastic music. Its main theme is a wistful piano tune interspersed with the occasional electronic flare. A wordless choir of voices joins in during another track, lending itself well to the cult themes. The more tense moments of near-death experiences are punctuated by imposing brass instruments and ticking. The evocative soundscape is composed by Maribeth Solomon, returning collaborator from multiple projects previously undertaken by Weather Factory’s duo during their time with Failbetter Games. Solomon delivers a series of tracks for Cultist Simulator that easily live up to the moody suite she produced for Sunless Sea.
