Description
Release date: Mid 2017
Are you a goat looking to join a goat-eating cult? Well, this is the game for you: When Goats Join Cults is an absurd narrative focused platformer with more than ten endings.

PLAY THE BROWSER DEMO: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/681526



WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

"The lesson learned here is that you shouldn't join the specific cult that eats you" - Markiplier

"Simple, yet absolutely hilarious" - Varjoni

"Ridiculous with a side of morbid" - HareTrinity

"Spectacularly stupid" - my dad



When Goats Join Cults is a narrative focused platformer with an emphasis on replayability. Some features include:

Go wherever you want, whenever you want
Following a short tutorial, players will be able to explore every inch of the cultists' mansion. Players skilled enough to platform past the guards can immediately visit the Sanctum of Treasure. You'd rather go to the storage room? Really? Okay, sure, go to the storage room, weirdo.

Discover more than ten endings
The first time you play When Goats Join Cults, you are probably going to be eaten. (Sorry about that, by the way.) The second time, you might eat your captors instead. By the third time, however, you may finding yourself forming a band and shredding your way to fame and glory. The possibilities aren't endless, but there are more than ten of them.

Experience thousands of lines of dialogue
Talk to every character in the game, with different branching dialogue appearing depending on the circumstances. Wear a cultist uniform and learn a secret; wear nothing and listen to a monologue extolling the virtues of homemade goat cheese.



Voted number one food-based cult by Cultist Monthly, the Corpulets bring people together through a shared love of goat flesh. But you don't know that. As a humble woodland animal, you feel honored when they invite you to their mansion for tea. Upon arrival, however, you sense something amiss: not only has no one poured you a cup of Twinings' Black Bagged Earl Grey, but the humans are staring at you as they brandish forks and lick their lips.

Assuming you survive this initial encounter, you are free to roam the Corpulets' sprawling mansion. Try to escape – or don't. Do whatever you'd like, whether that means playing ping pong, consuming your goat brethren, or falling in love.


UNNAMED GOAT - You don't deserve a name. Favorite food: boiled shoe leather.

UNNAMED GOAT LOVER - She deserves a name, but will probably die. You might kill her. Favorite food: vengeance.

BOB - Enthusiastic, friendly. Likes ping pong and long walks on the beach. Favorite food: goat a la pineapple.

GEORGE - definitely human and not a goat. Favorite food: baby goats torn from the arms of their crying mothers.

JULIA - pessimist and clumsy seamstress. Also bald. Favorite food: gruel.

OLGA - smells of sulfur and dead romance. Favorite food: anything difficult to eat, because the longer she spends eating, the longer she can forget about you, her neglectful goat husband.
