You will do a lot of cooking in Worship of the Lamb. Your followers can’t cook their own meals, so you’re responsible for feeding them whenever you’re in town. Filling their stomachs keeps them healthy, which means they can keep toiling for your glory!
Of course, the Flock will do whatever the Lamb commands, including eating things it really shouldn’t. Most meals have side effects; some of them can be turned to your advantage, while others are better used to make a point or punish unruly followers. Lamb doesn’t seem like a great cook, but with this guide, you can at least help them.
how to cook
The very first thing you build as part of the tutorial is the Cooking pot. By interacting with it, you can choose from one of your unlocked recipes. The Lamb knows how to cook up to twelve meals at a timebut there is no cooldown on the cooking pot, so if you have enough ingredients, you can cook batch after batch.
Each recipe’s icon has a number in the lower right corner. This shows the number of times you can cook this recipe with your current stock of ingredients. Since many recipes share ingredients, these numbers will decrease the longer you line up for meals.
Once you have decided on a menu, select the To cook button at the bottom of the interface launches a brief mini-game. Press the interact button when the icon is in the green area to successfully cook the next meal in the queue. If you miss, you’ll burn the meal, creating a mess that you’ll have to clean up later.
Feed the followers
Hungry subscribers will stop what they are doing and eat a meal if one is available. Meals are given to The hungriest subscribers first, and the Flock is smart enough that multiple subscribers won’t try to eat the same meal. The exception to this is if a follower has requested a specific meal as part of a quest; in these cases, this follower skip the line and eats the first plate of the requested meal which is cooked.
If a Follower goes several days without eating, he will win the hungry status. The starvation meter above their head will slowly fill up; if it turns completely red, the Disciple dies immediately. Hungry Followers lose their status as soon as they eat a meal of any kind.
One of the unlockable abilities of the Lamb in the Temple allows them to eat a meal they have prepared. This ability is available by trade in one of the heretical hearts dropped by the game’s four bosses. Eat a meal grants the Lamb an additional Blue Heart on their next crusade.
If the Lamb eats an unhealthy meal like Grassy Gruel or a Bowl Of Poop, it will eat instead lose a red heart on their next crusade!
How to unlock recipes
Once you have the ingredients for a given recipe, it will automatically unlock in the cooking pot. There are no scrolls to find with new recipes like Blueprints or Follower Forms. However, the game’s most infamous dish is only unlocked by accepting a specific questwhether or not you have the ingredients beforehand.
At the start of the game, a Disciple will confess a secret desire to the Lamb. They will ask you to prepare a bowl of poo. Accepting the quest adds this vile concoction to your cookbook. If you cook five of them, you will unlock the poop tracking form.
