********** --Okay now I KNOW what you're thinking. You're probably thinking "Derx, this isn't Faith & Prayer Version! What're you doing!". Well, i'm beyond burned out on Faith & Prayer Version - I've gotten done so little work on it in the past year, and my external biting the dust crippled my motivation and I still haven't fully recovered honestly. I've rebuilt all the old content I lost and added new content, but progress is extremely slow there. But this thread isn't to talk about Faith & Prayer! No, we're talking about a small project I made (and finished! Wowie!) back during October called Touhou Puppet Play ~ The Mansion of Mystery. The game was built for the Pokecommunity Game Jam, "Blinded By The Fight" back in October, where you had to follow a specific theme to enter - the theme being utilizing the Dewford Gym darkness circle mechanic. When I saw the theme, I knew instantly what I should make (Though I spent a few days during early development cementing ideas). As such, the game is extremely short - roughly 2 to 4 hours, maybe longer depending on factors. It revolves around a group of four from the human village and their expedition to uncover the truth behind “the mysterious mansion that has music coming from it”. The writing of the game is about as close to your average Touhou plot as I could get, and the way the game is handled is also similar: Six core stages, one Extra stage that gets accessible only if you can Perfect Run (1cc/no blacking out) the entire game. The difficulty is a bit rough, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the 1.8 Type Chart, but it is beatable without grinding, and in one shot. The game also has a slightly modified EXP system, where you get x1.25% exp (5/4ths) for beating a Puppet, just to make up for how short the game is, and how quickly the levels ramp up as a whole. It's balanced around battling every trainer, so take that into consideration! Honestly, making this game was extremely fun! The deadline let me keep myself in check, and I needed fresh blood to work on to try and get me back in the swing of development. I’m glad I made it and took part in the game jam! So far I’ve heard good feedback about it (even one of the judges said it was a close race for first between mine and first place!), and I know I put in a lot of effort to make the game as good as I possibly could! It is my hope that you all who download and play it can enjoy it just as much, if not more, as I enjoyed making it! Granted I took second out of three, but it was an extremely close second according to the judge.

Well Touhou fans, l decided to create a thread about the Fantasy Maiden Wars fangame series that I've been going on about in status updates and PMs. Mostly I wanted to post a list of the music and animation playlists with the games, at least to show off the work the FMW team put in. Sorry if this shows up on the front page because we are an open group. As a lover of turn-based strategies, this series has really hooked me. Based on the Super Robot Wars crossover games, FMW takes many of its mechanics and adapts Touhou mechanics into the formula for a much different experience than what I was expecting. It definitely takes advantage of the crossover nature of the series to tell the stories of Touhou 6-12 in a far different order and with interactions with characters from beyond just those 7 games. To group members: Feel free to create a thread highlighting any Touhou fangame you wish, if you feel like it. I just wanted to post everything here if you saw/heard something you liked.
