Sac­ri­fice your life and san­ity in Cul­tist Sim­u­la­tor

A spooky sound­track sells the cult vibes

Games TM - - CONTENTS -

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.
