So that’s what that was all about… :huh:
I changed the wiki link, and I think I solved the video thing. If not, please message me.
The PC-98 Games
Highly Responsive to Prayers is the first game in the series created by ZUN in 1995, released to the public in the November of 1996, and its full release was August 15th, 1997. The gameplay differs from the other games of the series in that you must bounce a Ying-Yang orb around the screen to hit cards and enemies. The game introduces the heroine, a shrine maiden by the name of Reimu Hakurei, and one other recurring character in the early games: Mima.
The plot revolves around Reimu trying to find who wrecked the Hakurei shrine.
The Story of Eastern Wonderland is the second game of the series, and was released along with Highly Responsive to Prayers on August 15th, 1997. It is the first Danmaku shooting game in the series and also included many hallmarks of the series, such as small hitboxes, a power-up system, an unlockable extra stage, and highly-moblie, (mostly) normal-sized bosses. Mima returns again in this game along with her servant: Marisa Kirisame, who will later become as major a character as Reimu in later games.
After returning from training in the mountains, Reimu finds the shrine overrun with monsters and spirits. She heads to Dream World, which is between Gensokyo and Makai, to find out what caused this to happen.
Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream, the third game in the series, was released on the 29th of December, 1997. It was one of two games so far to feature split-screen gameplay between two players who indirectly battle each-other (the other one being Phantasmagoria of Flower View). Each character is able to unleash specific attacks to try and get rid of the other player’s health points.
When taking a walk, Reimu comes across some curious ruins near the Hakurei Shrine. Only one person is allowed in the ruins to claim a great reward, so seven characters engauge in a big battle.
Lotus Land Story was released in 1998 on August 14th as the fourth game in the Touhou series. This one uses the same features found in The Story of Eastern Wonderland such as the Danmaku, but updates where added, including the collection of items when using spellcards and a non-trivial scoring system, amoung other changes. You can choose between two playable characters Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame, and a new recurring character is introduced as Yuuka Kazami.
This game follows after The Story of Eastern Wonderland, and there are more youkai swarming the Shrine. This promts Reimu and Marisa to seperatly head to a lake in the mountains and enter a strange Dream World to try and solve it.
Mystic Square, the fifth and final Touhou game for the the PC-98, was released on December 30th in 1998. In Mystic Square, a more refined but very similar gameplay to the other Danmaku shooting games, which is quite similar to the Windows games that come later on. This game features the return of Reimu and Marisa, but also the ability to play as Mima and Yuuka as well; however, the individual shooting patters was relinquished for this title. Additionally, Alice Margatroid, who becomes a recurring character in later games, makes her apperance for the first time.
As with the other two Danmaku games, this one starts off with a swarm of demons. Reimu, Marisa, Mima and Yuuka go to investigate this disruption, traveling into Makai once more.
As Hornet has said, there is a mountain of fan-made material out there, much more than any one person could possibly sort through by themselves. In addition to this, he states that there are already some Touhou fans on here, so I would like to keep this open to any Touhou fan! If you find something such as art, an arrange, or any other piece of material you want to share, by all means share it! I would just like to keep it at a few stipulations: No mature content, only 3-4 items per post, only one post with material per 12 hours, and try to keep it relatively on the topic at hand. Don’t worry, we will get to where-ever it is you are most accustomed with in due time. :3
How does this sound?
