Cult of the Lamb tasks you with establishing a sect of devoted followers, and before you can begin to bend their will with hallucinogenic mushrooms and ritual sacrifice, you’ll need to satisfy some of their demands. One such request comes from a hungry follower, who wants you to make him a bowl of steaming poop, a menu item you can regularly serve to your disciples.
It’s not just gross; it is also scientifically accurate. As a research assistant professor at the University of Missouri Ashley Conway noted, and supported by several studies, that animal species such as donkeys, horses, and rabbits “regularly engage in coprophagy” so that they can replenish vital nutrients that their digestive systems may have lost the first time around.
Okay, but this is an excellent opportunity to remind people that monogastric species that ferment the hindgut, such as donkeys, horses, and rabbits, regularly engage in coprophagy (eating their poop nuggets) to retrieve nutrients. important that their gastrointestinal systems missed the first time. https://t.co/OMwe7fmPf4

You don’t have to comply with this request in Cult of the Lamb, but if you want to make an acolyte more faithful, serving them some junk food is an easy way to do it. The good news is that as you progress through the game, you can start serving more nutritious meals to your cult, made from fresh berries, healthy vegetables, and fresh meat gathered from one of your followers.
Cult of the Lamb launched last week and has been well received so far. “Whether you’re exploring the dungeons or expanding your cult, the experience is enjoyable, challenging, and more than a little insane,” wrote Jessica Howard in GameSpot’s Cult of the Lamb review.
