Entrant 2019

Design Imps


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 party/boardgame-esque game is a casual, replayable game where you experience ludicrous, action-packed and creepy, albeit hilarious stories in a Lovecraftian setting. It includes playable events from several Lovecraft novels such as Rats in the Walls, At the Mountains of Madness and Haunter of the Dark, to name but a few. We also developed a 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.

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.
