Update 7/23: A great launch and bugfixes + OST!

Hey everyone,

First of all, I just want to start with a big thanks for playing our game. RAIN Project means a lot to me -- it's a dream I've had for over eight years, and to finally see it come true is truly an experience. For sure, the launch was not perfect. I accidentally let some debug builds slip through, which thankfully got reported by some people in the discussions so I could fix it quickly. While RAIN may not have the professional finish of real game studios, it's a game I can confidently say the team and I have poured our love into.

For a deeper badly-written telling of the RAIN project story, check out a post I just uploaded onto my blog: http://kvfrans.com/rain-project-the-story-of-building-a-touhou-fangame/

Anyway, today I'm pushing the first of a series of bugfixes that should (hopefully!) address the feedback we've been receiving over in the forums. Please, if any of these issues still persist, don't hesitate to let me know!
1. Fixed Tenshi's text to always be visible
2. Fixed Hina's test to always be visible
3. Music Room is now ordered correctly without any song repeats
4. Elevators will no longer move and trap the player
5. You can no longer jump over Past Sanae's fight
6. Kanako's third stage now activates correctly when on her right side
7. The player should not fall through one-way platforms
8. Mouse should be locked to the screen

Also, the OST for RAIN Project is now up! Check is out on youtube:

June 3

The Release of RAIN Project!!!!!!

おはようございます everyone!

It's an exciting day -- perhaps the most exciting one of all. That's right, as of June 3 2018, RAIN Project is released on Steam!

Two years ago, I would have never have imagined this occasion. But in the words of Sanae Kochiya, "You can't let yourself be held back by common sense".

From the original messy ideas and daydreaming, we've pulled it together. To me, RAIN Project is more than just a game -- it's a love letter to the world of Touhou, and a creation we can proudly call our own.



So I challenge you -- join Sanae and jump into the adventure! Take screenshots, make videos, start a discussion. The trials are hard -- but if you make it through the rainy storms, the view at the end will be breathtaking.

Cheers,
The RAIN Project team.

About This Game



RAIN Project is a Touhou fangame re-imagined as a platforming boss-bash! After a ritual gone wrong, the newbie shrine maiden Sanae awakes in a world of fantasy. With only the storms to guide her, Sanae sets off to scale a towering mountain in search of answers. Explore vibrant landscapes, out-smart troublesome enemies, and take town powerful bosses as you venture into the lands of Gensokyo.



If you've never heard of Touhou, don't worry! RAIN Project will provide a warm welcome for newcomers to the series. We hope to build a world where anyone can jump in and immerse themselves in the fantasies of Gensokyo as they play.

If you're a Touhou veteran, then welcome back. RAIN Project is a re-imagination of the Touhou formula as a 2D platformer. Get ready to experience boss fights, spell cards, and beautiful danmaku. RAIN Project takes place before the events of Mountain of Faith -- Sanae arrives in Gensokyo, only to find her memories lost and the gods of Moriya shrine out of control! Can Sanae cast away her common sense and regain control of Youkai mountain?



Gensokyo is a land of fantasy and adventure, and we've built a world to show this off. Levels are vast and sprawling, containing multitudes of enemies as well as NPCs. Optional side quests await anyone seeking a challenge.



Of course, the highlight of every Touhou game -- the bosses! In RAIN Project, boss fights emphasize speed and planning, while keeping the sense of scale and awe from the original Touhou designs. From small minibosses to epic showdowns, take on the intricate spellcards and many beautiful danmaku patterns.
