In this cult manager, there are sinners aplenty and not all are eager to confess. Each member of your community has 2 hidden traits - one virtuous, one heretical. If you’ve earned the favor of their House, you may investigate their reputation. Otherwise, you may appoint them to your seasonal council and watch their work for clues. Includes the Sunken Sins DLC, launched December 2017.


The Shrouded Isle began as a jam game ("The Sacrifice") for Ludum Dare 33: You Are The Monster. It's created by developers from multiple studios, and published by Kitfox Games.


  • Choose a victim to sacrifice every season
