I remember fondly when Cultist Simulator first came out. It's a complicated management card game, but once you start to understand the concepts, it becomes extremely fun. Playing it on the Steam Deck before was possible, but with yesterday's newest update, we have official compatibility with better UI scaling to make it much more enjoyable on the go.


In the update, titled "SARCODES," we now have official Steam Deck support, which gave them an excuse to add some QoL and accessibility features to the game. This includes a 150% UI scale and a new font size setting! Both of these will make the game much more enjoyable to play on smaller screens, especially with how text-heavy Cultist Simulator is.

On top of that, we have corrected some new bugs and typos. Keybinds will now show correct values if you have changed them, the ESC key on keyboards now works, and you can now cancel keybinds without worrying about your Keyboard not working. There have also been some typos in the mod loading logs that were corrected.

You can view the full changelog on the Steam Community Post.

Cultist Simulator is available on Steam for $19.99, but you can buy it on Fanatical now for $16.59. The game has also gone on sale for $5.99 during big sales. It is currently rated Steam Deck Verified.
