Seihou Project

Banshiryuu 幡紫竜

J Shunsatsu sare do? 2004 Returns to the style of play from Shuusou Gyoku. No involvement from ZUN at all, but this uses the "pbg engine" on which the earlier Windows Touhou titles were based (this game was in development for years). Received additional updates for many years afterward, resulting in huge (arguably worse) changes to gameplay.

JE RebRank 2011 The huge next game in Project Blank, has been in development for years. A somewhat different kind of game focused around using numerous special attacks to smash enemies and bosses to bits. Now available on Steam... with an English translation!

Project Noise/Akizora Synthesis

Title Language Publisher Release Description

J Project Noise 2015 Centered around "fields" that power up your character. Defeating bosses in a certain way with these "fields" will rescue them instead of killing them, changing the story. The first game of Project Noise, but that project partially ended after the release of this game, and the developers joined another doujin circle. Was rereleased as a free download in 2017, maintained by the new doujin circle.
Sekkeibana -Sekka the Gleam- 雪景花 -Sekka the Gleam-

(Sekkeibana -Sekka the Gleam-)

J 秋空シンセシス (Akizora Synthesis) 2017 Functionally a followup to the above, but meant to be a new series with new characters. This circle has made some other games as well, before the merge with Project Noise.

The following are games that are heavily inspired by Touhou gameplay but with a unique setting and characters.

(Shisei Ryuujin Roku 2)

J RemicalSoft 2017 After a long absence... Sequel to the above, raises the bar even higher. It is technically still under development, with a major content update to be released sometime in 2018.

Len'en Project

Title Language Publisher Release Description

J Trick Nostalgie 2013 The first game in the Len'en Project. It was developed and released alongside the second.

(Len'en Reiretsuden ~ Reactivate majestical imperial)

J Trick Nostalgie 2014 The third game in the Len'en Project. Uses a tag team system somewhat similar to certain fangames like Re:Phantasmagoria of Imagine Breaker, etc. Also introduces "Ex+α", an additional boss fight played after the regular Extra Stage.
Len'en Teneisenki ~ Brilliant pagoda or haze castle 連縁天影戦記 ~ Brilliant pagoda or haze castle

(Len'en Teneisenki ~ Brilliant pagoda or haze castle)

J Trick Nostalgie 2016 The fourth game in the Len'en Project. Much bigger than the others or even over most games, featuring *twelve* playable characters through a strange team system, a huge roguelike-esque game system, an extensive upgrade shop, two separate routes with their own set of six bosses, all previous characters as bosses, an Extra stage with its own set of three bosses, and... certain other secrets. The project started simply enough, but completing the game put the developer in the hospital...

Ore no Animism

Title Language Publisher Release Description
Ore no Animism ~Jigoku Hen~ おれのアニミズム~地獄篇~

(Ore no Animism ~Jigoku Hen~)

J ろどり(Rodori) 2014 A free Touhou-like game made in Danmakufu v0.12m with various animal characters. Much tougher than a typical Touhou-like game, and only has two difficulty levels. However, it features an "Another" Stage, a second kind of Extra Stage where each of the two player characters gets a unique stage, ending with a fight against the other character. Also contains a series of extra boss special attacks, one for each character (ten in all).
Ore no Animism ~Tengoku Hen~ おれのアニミズム~天国篇~

(Ore no Animism ~Tengoku Hen~)

J ろどり(Rodori) 2016 Sequel to the above, now using Danmakufu ph3. Features strange gameplay based around purchasing upgrades and bombs in real time. *Significantly* easier than the first game, and introduces a full set of four difficulties. Also introduces two more player characters, originally bosses from the previous game. Boss special attacks are called "Works" here. Contains a new series of ten boss Works for the ten (!) new characters, but these must be unlocked by completing certain tasks.
Ore no Animism ~Yomigaeri Hen~ おれのアニミズム~黄泉還り篇~

(Ore no Animism ~Yomigaeri Hen~)

J ろどり(Rodori) 2018 Currently in development. Centers around filling a temperature gauge by staying alive and generally playing well; as it rises, enemies become more dangerous, but more points are rewarded for collecting items or clearing boss special attacks, now called "Tricks". A new type of special attack, the Ignite Shot, is introduced to allow the player to decrease this gauge. Basic game features are otherwise similar to/built on the previous game, though it seems only the two main characters are playable this time. Maybe there will be unlockables in the full version?
