Reviews

“Fhtagn! - Tales of the Creeping Madness is an amusing text-driven choose-your-own-adventure game with a snazzy style and dark humor.”
TechRaptor

“As such… It’s tightly designed, fun to play with friends, got a lot of humour and charm, and you can make new content for it? That’s two squamous appendages up, Fhtagn!”
The Mad Welshman

The Dark Young expansion now live!

Finally, you can sacrifice your friends and summon an Ancient Horror in the new expansion. The expansion includes a new cult, new Ancient One, now with useable items, more stories, new game mechanics and more investigators.

There is a new cult in town – The Thousand Young. These sycophantic backstabbers are devoted to the All-Mother and Mother only wants the best and the brightest. You have 6 rounds to build up the required stats needed to use the ritual items in the final ritual, but you also need to outwit your “friends” and make sure it is them on the chopping block and not you.

What the Fhtagn! is this all about?


Dubbed the "funniest take on mystic doomsday cults in years", Fhtagn! is a choose-your-own-adventure game where you can play as one of four cultists intent on destroying the world by summoning an Ancient Horror. Decide how you will be preparing for the final ritual by visiting various locations in the unsuspecting town of Arkham and navigating iconic Lovecraftian events. Battle investigators, gangs, corrupt cops and horrors from the Depths to bring about the end of the world!

This text-based adventure game boasts:
  • 93 000 words.
  • Across 113 events with 370 potential story outcomes.
  • Fulfil 1 of 24 roles with 56 role feedback stories.
  • 142 different character endings.

This boardgame-esque game shines in local co-op or screen-share with friends and it is a casual game that will provide loads of entertainment. With snazzy graphics, betrayal is best served with a jazzy/swing soundtrack and neo-noir visuals.

Players can write their own stories for the game

We are so passionate about the idea of stories that we created an application, the Fhtagn! Content Creator, for players to write their own stories for the game and enjoy it with their friends. All that is needed is a story idea and no programming is required. We provided players with a Quick start video guide, Content Creator Guide and even released all of Fhtagn!'s event stories to aid in this process. If you are interested in creating your own stories, you can check out more information on our Content Creator, on our forum page.

Community-written story packs

We provide our awesome community with a writing prompt on our Discord server (in the Story Time channel) and the community then writes amazing story contributions, which other members can vote on. Winning contributions are combined to create the final story event pack for players to enjoy ingame. After each completed Story Time event, the community mod will be updated with the new stories. Credits for contribution can be found in the Discord Community Mod sheet.

Don’t miss out on future awesome story events and subscribe to the mod (link) to see more stories written by the community for the community. If you want to be part of the fun, join our Discord server - That Fhtagn Server.

  • You can play on your own or with up to 3 friends in couch co-op.
  • You have 6 rounds to build up the required stats needed to use the ritual items, but you will need to figure out which stats those are through some trial and error.
  • You can visit 1 location per round and attempt the Lovecraftian stories at that location, to improve your stats.
  • Finally, put your stats to the test as you try to summon the Ancient One.
  • Will everyone pass or fail or will one of you betray the rest and grab all the glory?
