Sole Survivor Game’s debut ascends out of early access, welcoming players to the strange and lucrative world of 1970s cults.
Thursday, 3rd November 2022 – Team17 and Sole Survivor Games have today launched the cult management sim Honey, I Joined a Cult into version 1.0. Placing players as the architect of their very own cult, they will design every aspect to the cult leader’s exacting standards, building everything from energy spas to spirit chambers, ensuring their would-be followers have everything they need on their journey to enlightenment. Running a successful cult is no mean feat, players will need to balance cultists’ happiness, handle meddling outsiders, and manage their leader’s inflated ego to keep things running smoothly, their followers devoted, and profits up.

Update 1.0 includes interactive police raids and protests, a difficulty selection system, a help manual, a carpeting system, steam cards, and achievements, alongside new in-game content and customization options, balancing improvements, and quality of life changes. The full launch also introduces free DLC available for all players who own Honey, I Joined a Cult before 10th November (including all purchases made throughout early access) and features cosmetics from other Team17 published titles, including The Escapists, The Survivalists, the Worms franchise, Blasphemous, Yooka-Laylee, and Narita Boy.
