The Touhou Project Thread [WIP]

Touhou. If you haven't heard of it then you clearly have not been on the internet long enough!
Touhou is a game series consisting of several games mostly consisting of 'bullet hell' gameplay. Don't know what bullet hell is? Imagine Space Invaders but on acid!

http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Touhou_Wiki

Code: Select all

The Touhou Project (東方Project) is a series of 2D (with 3D background) vertically-scrolling danmaku shooting games made by Team Shanghai Alice, with three fighting game spinoffs co-produced with Tasogare Frontier. They are similar to regular shooting games, but focus more on weaving through complex patterns containing anywhere from dozens to hundreds of bullets. Every game in the Touhou series is set in the fantasy land of Gensokyo, and the series is known for its huge cast of characters, well-developed storylines, and related materials such as music CDs, fan-made comics and animated videos made to the music.
Sounds cool, I wanna give it a try. Where do I begin?

Well, Perfect Cherry Blossom is a good game to start off on! It's the 7th game of the series.

Hi, this is the (completely unofficial) touhouwiki.net PR guy here. I thought I would just let you know that the wiki at wikia was abandoned and hijacked, and now it's being updated in bad faith (by copying and pasting the new wiki's own info) to make it seem like it's still alive. Most of the info there is still outdated despite that.

You can read more on that here and here.

Could you please remove the wikia link from the OP ? (^^;
