The end is near. The Gods demand tribute.
Deus Cult is a tribute-management game set in a pre-apocalyptic world. Join humanity’s last line of defense and carefully manage your resources to appease the Gods. Plan your strategy and offer Money, Faith or Blood as a tribute, while the Gods unleash plagues that bring the end of the world closer.
Deus Cult is the latest release of 1 Simple Game, a game development studio based in Zapopan, Jalisco. The premise of Deus Cult was conceived during the Global Game Jam 2016 as a game that contrasted radically with Mucho Taco. While the aesthetic and thematic of Mucho Taco is cheerful and colorful, Deus Cult focuses on the occult. The puzzle game mechanics of Deus Cult are designed to offer a series of challenges that require planning and efficient management of time and resources. 1 Simple Game is the video game development arm of 1 Simple Idea, a creative digital strategic communication agency. In order to diversify the services and foster the commercial development of the company, in 2013, 1 Simple Idea decided to invest in a specialized cell in the development of games of intellectual property and digital entertainment.
- Unique puzzle mechanics. Free and easy to play, but challenging to master.
- Fulfill the creature’s will by managing a wide variety of tributes.
- Multiple plagues that create unique challenges.
- An ample number of scenarios to solve. Only the best can obtain the coveted Golden Medal of Mercy in each stage.

About 1 Simple Game
1 Simple Game was built at the beginning of 2013 to develop games for clients and original IPs. In April 2014 our first game was released, Mugogy Jump! Which came out for PS Vita and smartphones iOS & Android. Our next release, Mucho Taco, came out in September 2015 for iOS & Android and became a global hit, with over 2.1 million downloads and winner of several acknowledgments, such as “Best of App Store” by Apple. In November 2017 Deus Cult was released, a niche strategy game. In 2019 we were selected by Google for their program Indie Games Accelerator, for which 30 studios were selected (from over 1700 applications) from emerging countries all over the world to take part in an in-person Bootcamp in Singapore, and of virtual mentoring. June 2020 is a milestone for the studio because we released The Lullaby of Life in the Apple Arcade service. Right now, we’re in the middle of development for 2 new games, “Chronoloop” and “I’m Not Jelly”.
