Touhou Gouyoku Ibun (Strange Tale of Avarice) ~ Suibotsushita Chinshuu Jigoku (Submerged Hell of Sunken Sorrow) (東方剛欲異聞 ~ 水没した沈愁地獄) is the 17.5th installment of the Touhou Project, created by Team Shanghai Alice, with Twilight Frontier's collaboration.


The game is described as a "horizontal side-scrolling danmaku water action game" on the official website.



Touhou Gouyoku Ibun is the third game to have no English words in its original title, after Touhou Hisoutensoku and Fairy Wars.


地上に黒い水が吹き出していた。 その水は異臭を放ち、身体に付くと簡単には落とせなかった。 とても生活用水として使える代物では無かった。

その湧き出る黒い水を凶と見るもの、吉と見るもの、 神聖なものと見るもの、邪悪なものと見るもの、 天災と見るもの、経済的暁光だと見るもの、 様々な憶測が飛び交い、一部ではお祭り騒ぎにもなった。

しかしある出来事を境に、浮かれていたものの背筋を凍らせる事となる。 飲料用の湧き水に、美しい清流に、憩いの場である温泉に…… 黒い水は場所を選ばず、湧き出し始めたのである
Black water gushed out onto the surface. The water released an odd odour, and was hard to get off once stuck to one's body. It was not something that you could use as your everyday water.

Some saw the gushing water as misfortune, some as good fortune; some saw it as holy, while others as evil; some saw it as a natural disaster, some saw it as a business opportunity, various theories were tossed around. Some even started a festival and made a fuss.

But not long after, an event occurred that put a horrific damper on their buoyant moods. From the springs that they drank from, the beautiful clear streams, the hot springs at rest spots... from every location it possibly could, the black water began to gush out.


Most of the music in Touhou Gouyoku Ibun was composed or arranged ziki_7, who previously arranged a track for the soundtrack of Urban Legend in Limbo. The remaining two tracks, consisting of both of the final boss themes, were composed by ZUN.
