Download the game

  • Misspent Youth: Eyebleed Edition (pdf). This is a complete version of the game, a PDF of what we printed on paper. This is not the easiest way to use this book. If you run the game from this PDF, I recommend that you blow up the text to at least 100%. By the way, I’ve released this on torrent networks; you can feel free to do so as well.
