Dark Young expansion is now live: Sacrifice your friends and summon a new Ancient Horror!



Hi there fellow World-enders!

Finally, you can sacrifice your friends and summon an Ancient Horror in the new Dark Young 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 (selectable from the Cult Select Page). 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.

The Dark Young expansion is now live and you can find all the fixes, changes and additions below.

Dark Young expansion launches on 22 October 2018



With the Halloween season in full swing, celebrate the most frightful of holidays with an expansion that will both chill and tickle your funny bone! On 22 October 2018, we will be launching The Dark Young expansion for Fhtagn! - Tales of the Creeping Madness.

The expansion includes:
  • New cult
  • New Ancient One
  • Now with useable items
  • More stories
  • New game mechanics
  • More investigators

In its first instalment, this party/boardgame-esque game saw the cult of The Dreaming Eye trying wake the thing of the idols, that green, sticky spawn of the stars (can you guess who?) to claim the world. Now, 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. For every successful round you complete, you get ‘Not It’ stacks, which you use in the end of the game to determine who will be sacrificed to dear Mother. The player who receives the most votes will become the juicy glazed ham on the altar in the Dark Forest. Or will they? Should you be voted as the sacrifice, you will have the chance to escape and GTFO outta there!

Don’t miss out on this thrilling experience and remember to update your game on 22 October 2018!

Check out the expansion trailer!

About This Game

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.

The 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.

Talk to us

We want your experience with Fhtagn! to be as enjoyable as possible, so please do not hesitate to provide us with any feedback. If you want to just chat, report some bugs or if you find anything misleading on our store page, we'd like to hear from you on our social media or here on the forums.


Thank you for taking the time to read about our game and we hope you will enjoy playing it (seriously if you could read this you'll cruise through the in-game text).
