OKCultish

A humorous online dating simulator full of coercion and ulterior motives! You're in charge of recruitment for the shadowy organization of your choosing. Your platform of choice? Online dating, full of people looking for something new in their lives! Try to convince as many people to join as possible, but it's not always the simplest things to sway people on.... Instructions - Matching with someone with more interests in common with you makes it easier to improve your relationship, and your chance of recruiting them. - Complimenting gives a small bonus to relationship. - Small talk gives a moderate bonus if you mention something they're interested in, or else you get a small penalty. - Hinting at your cult is a larger risk/reward, and success depends on how high your relationship score already is. - Outright mentioning your cult is similar, with a still larger risk/reward. - When you think your relationship is strong enough, pop the question and ask them to join your cult!
