TouhouHakujinki (White Dust Record) ~ White Names Spoiled Past (東方白塵記 ~ White Names Spoiled Past) is a fan-made Touhou Project script for the Touhou Danmakufu ph3 shooting game engine, developed by several members and associates of the team behind previous fangames The Last Comer and Mystical Power Plant. The main portion of the game was released on September 13, 2014, and the Extra Stage was released on January 24, 2015. Both the main scenario and the extra can be downloaded for free at their official website.

Concept

The game contains fan-made characters made by NRT as hypothetical versions of unknown figures from official games of the Touhou Project, such as Sasha Sashiromiya who's based on the unknown figure from Touhou Hisoutensoku. The game (and by extension, NRT) pokes fun at itself for featuring fan-made characters that quickly became forgotten[citation needed].

Gameplay

Unlike your average Touhou game, White Names Spoiled Past incorporates mystery-solving elements in addition to danmaku. This factors into both the story, which contains hints as to the identity of the culprit, and the game system itself, which requires a good deal of thought in order to be used effectively. Despite the danmaku and the mystery going hand-in-hand, however, the game should ideally still be enjoyable to anyone who only likes one or the other.

Story

One day, Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame and Sanae Kochiya discover that the humans of Gensokyo have become unable to form memories. As they separately prepare to investigate the incident, they're each visited by someone claiming to have information on the culprit. They each set off alongside their new companion, and quickly find that the situation is more complicated than it seems...

Music

White Names Spoiled Past features original music in the style of ZUN, composed by Misora (深蒼穹).
