So you’re probably here because of some class and have no idea what Touhou is, why I’m making you read about it, or how to pronounce it. Well, in order:
- A series of 2D shoot-em-up “bullet hell” games about poorly drawn girls shooting lots of colorful energy balls at each other, made by a drunken Japanese guy.
- Because I think it’s fun and interesting and I want you to think it’s fun and interesting too.
I could try to illustrate the gameplay through words, but fortunately I don’t have to. Here’s a video showing Stage 4 of TH08 Imperishable Night.
(Note that this is not my gameplay, this is just a random video. I might go through later and upload my own examples.)
Beyond the games, there are also official print works and more. I’ll talk about those and more about the games later; this is just a basic intro post to make sure you have some idea what I’m talking about.
