How to unlock mind reading in Cult of the Lamb
The short answer is to just keep playing, but the short answer isn’t always the most helpful. More specifically, you must complete at least three successful runs (which the game calls “crusades”) and defeat the mini-boss at the end of each run. This earns you a new follower every time, so you should normally do that anyway. At this point in the game, you’re still in the Darkwood biome, but after the third win, the One Who Waits will pay you a visit before returning to camp. It will give you the ability to read minds from that point forward, allowing you to see inside your follower’s mind (as seen in the screenshot above).
How mind reading works in Cult of the Lamb
Once you have this ability, interact with any follower and select the thought bubble to read their mind. In general, this works like an encyclopedia for each follower, listing their name, age, total time in the cult, level, stats, traits, and thoughts. It’s a good way to check the progress of individual followers, as as the game progresses it can be easy to overlook newer members. This is also a good way to check their individual hunger and hygiene counters, as the ones you regularly see in the corner of the screen make up the cult overall. Finally, you can glean important information from the devotee’s thought recordings. Think of it like a journal and possibly share your hopes and fears.
