Oh hi, I'm... pretty insignificant in the Touhou community, actually. I used to provide some German translations for the Touhou Patch Center way back in 2013 or so, but eventually lost interest because I kind of don't like my own native language very much and would much rather not play games in German if I can help it. I started playing Touhou back in 2012 or so, I think. I've gotten pretty good at it lately, having Lunatic-1cc'd eight of the games by now.
I'm much better-known in the Len'en community, where I contribute to the Len'en Wiki semi-frequently (my Len'en Wiki user page is this way) and also used to provide translation patches for JynX's games. Chief reason I created an account here was so I could write an article on Fools Rush In in order to prevent one from being created on the Len'en Wiki (I also translated that game, too). Another one of my claims to fame appears to be that I used to frequently get in touch with JynX on Twitter. My involvement with the community has dwindled rapidly over the years, though.
tl;dr: Don't expect too much contribution from here.
About Team Gaijin Alex
Yeah, I'm gonna be plugging this here, too. It's my user page, okay? I can do whatever I want.
Team Gaijin Alex (外人アレク現作団, or TGA for short) started off as a small three-person doujin circle consisting of Spaztique (music, story, the guy who brought the team together), FullHitPoints (programming, game design, sometimes pixel art), and of course myself (I dabble in pretty much everything related to game development that you can think of), but by now the head count has dwindled down to just me. And yeah, the name is a total rip-off from Team Shanghai Alice. We thought it was pretty fitting.
Since I make games and music in my spare time, of which there's not all that much to go around, the circle had existed for years without finishing a single game. Two Touhou fangames are presently dead in the water (but will be worked on again sometime in the future), but a Touhou-style bullet hell shmup with an original cast and setting has been completed and released back in 2018.
I tweet about game development on my Twitter, so feel free to come stalk me there if you think it's up your alley.
