I’ve never been the founder of a cult, so I don’t personally know how long it takes to raise one up from scratch. I guess it depends on how long it takes to get your custom cultist robes delivered. When you’re blessed with the powers of a demonic overseer, though, that probably expedites things a tad. So, how long is Cult of the Lamb?
How Long is Cult of the Lamb?
Cult of the Lamb requires a balance of both progressing through the main story and doing your utmost to properly maintain your community. Since it’s a roguelite, odds are good you won’t make it through your Crusades to unseat the Bishops on your first try, and even if you did, you’d probably need to re-run your Crusades a few times to source things like materials, money, and food for your cult’s followers.
Taking all of those factors into account, Cult of the Lamb is ballparked to have a total game length of 15 to 20 hours. This depends on how good you are at clearing through the Crusades, as well as whether you strive for the biggest, most complete cult community you can manage or just stick to the bare minimum to progress.
Even after you beat the main game, you can still go on Crusades and continue building up your community, so if that aspect of Cult of the Lamb is appealing to you, you could definitely get at least a few more hours of post-game content. If nothing else, you could travel around the world and make a point of beating every single NPC at Knucklebones, just because you can. You could also work to unlock all of the follower appearances, find every kind of Tarot Card, find and prepare every kind of recipe, and more. There’s plenty of potential for completionists in this game.
