“《东方梦零魂》是一款回合制弹幕棋盘战略游戏,游戏拥有着有着精美的画面立绘和优秀的配乐以及独立的开场动画,每位角色都有着精致的建模,可以让玩家自然的沉迷其中。但目前养成机制还不成熟,且本作难度较高。喜欢东方的小伙伴不要错过。”

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Because the production team first time of making game the skills of making games and experience are lacked, the release of the pre-emptive version can collect feedback from the players in first time to help us better improve the game during the development process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“After the release of the EA version, we expect it will take another 2 months to refine it to better. EA version is about to opening the story of the 00-04 chapters in the game, mainly to test whether the relatively competitive core combat system is feasible and how much it needs to be polished. When the core of system is sure no problem, we will spend more four months to complete the content fill.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The preemptive version contains the plot of 00-04 chapters, 4 scenes, 5 BOSS, and 5 operable characters;

The full version contains 19 chapters, 9 scenes, 11 BOSS combinations, and 11 actionable characters.

  • The pre-emptive version of the game lasts about 3 hours;
  • The full version has more than 20 hours of playable content.
  • The skills, effects, and details of the battlefield will be polished in more detail.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At present, we have produced the game's core combat system, plot dialogue system, equipment system, lineup adjustment system and mid-path QTE system. And completed some art resources such as scenes, models, and music creation including theme songs. It has been ensured that in the EA version players have been able to 100% enjoy the game experience that we originally intended to create for the player.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is no difference between the pre-emptive experience and the full version. The pre-emptive experience version purchased by the user is equivalent to buy the the full version.Even after we update it, the price will not increase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will actively collect feedback about the EA version from the community to improve our game.”

Reviews

“A truly amazing fangame. Now that it has been translated into english, it would be a shame to not give it a try if you like Touhou or turn-based tactics (or both!).”
CPT Gadget

“对于本作的主要角色之一“博丽灵梦”的喜爱,在接到邀约的第一时间就进行了尝试。不得不说,本人之前游玩过的几款东方游戏都是弹幕射击题材,而本作将“弹幕”要素与回合制战旗的融合确实让我在第一时间大吃一惊,简单体验后,个人感觉本作的这次融合尝试颇为成功,是一款即使刨除东方题材也十分值得尝试的佳作。”
爱の榨汁屋

“作为一款回合制游戏,也为了迎合弹幕机制,游戏的创新玩法基乎发挥的淋漓尽致。在准备时间,可以同过商店购买装备,也可以替换角色的出场阵容,给游戏带来了更多的可玩性。游戏拥有多种多样的精致的场景和激动人心的配乐。但是虽然场景十分精致,但是战斗中除了boss在释放技能时偶尔可以改变一下视角,来欣赏一下地图之外,玩家不可以自己改变视角。如果可以自己可以自由调整视角的话,游戏体验应该会更加完美。非常有意思的回合制游戏,其中也融入了很多意思的玩法,人物的立绘和剧情也是十分的优秀。非常推荐东方粉购入。”

About This Game

Story


Scarlet Devil Mansion is asking for trouble again.

For the sake of convenience, vampire lord Reimilia Scarlet release scarlet mist to blind the sun. No doubt such stupid behavior will definitely result in a tragedy. Look! Reimu and Marisa are coming to teach her a lesson.

What is different is that Reimu and Marisa use dummies called “Nil Souls” to defeat opponents this time. Come on! Let’s choose your soldiers , pick up your weapons , dodge opponents’ bullets and beat them down.

We firmly believe that this brand new scarlet mist anomaly will keep company with you during your playing of about 20 hours.

1.A unique system including turn base and barrage — turn-based barrage system.





1-1 What is the turn-based barrage system?

To cut a long story short, it is a system syncretizing turn-based game and barrage. A system in which the barrages will move according to preset trajectory after players complete operation. A systemwhichletsplayersthink twice before every character’s every step so that their characters won’t be hurt by changing barrages. So this unique system requires players to have the ability of deducing situation they will face after several rounds and scan changes of battlefield in the dynamic perspective.Just think about how you try to guess your friend’s next step when playing chess, then you may understand the system better.


▲ This turn-based barrage system nearly like this in the game.

1-2 How can I enjoy the turn-based barrage system?

The answer is the diversity of barrage itself. In this aspect, TouHou Project’s official games and other barrage games have given us a lot of reference. Barrages in the game can be classified as:regular barrages,random barrages,tracking barrages and blocking barrages.Meanwhile, bosses’skills can add more changes to barrages. Let’s see two examples. Rumia can hide barrages, which means palyers can’t see her barrages completely. As a result, players have to deduce trajectory of barrages according to their acquaintance with barrages and then dodge them. Hon Meirin is good at knockback, so chances are that even if players have dodged barrages, Hon Merin can still use her skills to beat them back to the area surrounded by barrages or even to a barrage. We hope that we can combine bosses’skills with rules of barrages to create more plentiful experience.


▲ Tetris barrages? Are you kidding me?(´_ゝ`)

1-3 How can we cope with barrages?

We provide three ways:dodge,just stand stillandelimination.Here we don’t to talk about the first and second ways more. As for the third way, players’ characters will have the ability of eliminating barrages. For example, we design some skills which allow players to eliminate barrages in a certain area, and some spell cards which can attack bosses while eliminating barrages in a large area. We believe that properly using skills of eliminating barrages while attacking bosses, together with barrage itself, will create something interesting. We hope we can make the system more attractive as possible as we can.


▲ Oh~ my friend, are you annoyed with being surrounded by barrages? Here is Master Spark, eliminates abundant barrages in a line, releases powerful blast to the maximum and leaves no side effects at the same time. Are you sure you can refuse such a mighty spell card?


▲ Besides active attacking skills, some supporting skills also have the effect of eliminating barrages. How to use these skills properly will become the core of the system

2.Six kinds of skills, weave , combine and mutate.



We will spend most of time on developing skills in the following days. After all, combos between skills decide whether the game is attractive. So far, we’ve designed and classified skills as following:


▲ Attack,Instant damage without any cost. Meanwhile you can also recover your mana. But it will be restricted by distance.


▲ Defensive skills,Reduce damage from bosses’ attack.


▲ Barrage skills,Bosses only at present. Bosses will use barrages to fulfill the battlefield, surround players’ characters and finally kill them.


▲ Spell card,High damage, high cost and various additional effects.


▲ Summons skills,Bosses only. Bosses will summon servants to raise their damage.


▲ Supporting skills,Skills of coping with different situation and raising combating effect.

2-1 System of opponents’ skills

As for opponents’skills, we preset three motivating method:RA(random and active),CA(conditional and active),andCP(conditional and passive).ere is brief explanation:

  • Generally, opponents will randomly launch a skill randomly every round.
  • When some conditions are met, opponents will launch one or several active skills.
  • When some conditions are met, one or several passive skills will be motivated.种被动。


▲ ur anonymous Rumia is killed by opponent’s combo of barrages, spell cards and environment restriction.

2-2 System of players’ skills

or four skills. Attack has restriction on scope, skills will cost characters’ mana and defense has no restriction. Besides all above, there are other several rules:

  • Restriction on scope.
  • Some skills only have certain effective rounds.
  • Some skills have CD.
  • Some passive skills cannot be motivated inbattles but they will take effect continuously (For example, floating opponents won’t be influenced by environment.)
  • What’s more, in our next developing step, we are considering letting players themselves choose skills


▲ Marisa can’t release ‘Master Spark’ due to CD of five rounds.

2-3 Servant system ——Icing on the cake

To keep players from being bored with the pattern of fighting against bosses, bosses will summon two to four servants to combat together. Every servant has its respective action bar, which means players should regard each servant as an opponent. Servants have their own action patterns as well as interactive(with their masters of course) action patterns. How and when to cope with these servants properly will also be an interesting core remaining to be pondered on.

So far, we can show you following information……


▲ Reimu andher servants —— Red and white magatamas


▲ Marisa and her servants——Casket of Star


▲ Patchouil and her servants——Philosopher’s Stone

3.team , items and storyline exploration



3-1 System of team

‘TouHou Nil Soul’ is a turn-based barrage game requiring all characters ally against opponents. At most five characters are permitted in one team. More characters will be unlocked with the exploration of storyline. Each character has different position and feature. Using these features properly to foster strengths and circumvent weaknesses will make your combat more efficient. What’s more, each character will have following designing:

  • Potential combating statistics.
  • Three or four innate skills(we will improve this aspect in the following editions)
  • Three slots for: weapons, armors and accessories.


▲ You can check and adjust characters’ status when you configure team for next battle. Grey characters are unavailable.

3-2 System of items

We design the system of items of course. Putting different items into right slots can considerably raise characters’ statistics, which will do help to your following battles. Here is some information about items:

  • The only way to gain items so far is: First, win a battle. Second, go to Kourindouand get some dormant items. Third, infuse ‘Nil Soul’ into items and waken them. Now you can use them.
  • Wakened items have random statistics.
  • Different levels will randomly drop different items. For example, if you get a Reimu’s weapon in ‘Hakurei Shrine’, then next time you may see this weapon in another level instead of ‘Hakurei Shrine’. The reason why we design this mechanism is that we hope we can avoid letting players play one level repeatedly just for one specific item.
  • So far, each character has her private weapon but armors and accessories can be used universally
  • All dormant items you get from all levels will only exist before next time you get new dormant items. In other words, if you don’t waken dormant items you get from the last battle during the period between the last battle and next battle, these dormant items will be replaced by new dormant items


▲ fter you win a battle, you can get some dormant items in Kourindou. Since the ‘Nil Soul’ is finite, it deserves to think twice before wakening items.

3-3 System of levels

We design a map ranging from Hakurei Shrine to Scarlet Devil Mansion.What’s more, you will see some special landmarks on this map, they correspond to battlefields in official games.Yes, those familiar opponents will challenge you when you exploring the map. Here is the explanation in detail about this system:

  • You can only unlock next area by defeat the boss of this area.
  • You can challenge every area repeatedly.
  • You will get random items from different area.
  • Story of each area will only be motivated the first time you challenge the area
  • What’s more, we are trying our best to polish this aspect and enrich players’ experience of exploring the map.


▲ Once you’ve explored the whole map, you will get a picture of part of Gensoukyo. By the way, we haven’t designed this picture completely on the basis of official games.

4.ther things we think we should display here



4-1 Characters in the official game ‘the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil’ are all available.

Besides Reimu and Marisa, nine characters in ‘the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil’ will appear in our game. They will be unlocked with players’ exploration of storyline.


▲ The deblocking of two vampire bosses has some special conditions so we decide not to display their images here.

4-2 Humorous storyline

We fill this game with a great deal of stories. While enjoying the main line, we hope these stories can make you smile knowingly.

Yes, it is just a relaxing game, a pleasant game from the beginning to the end. So, you can motivate any story as you wish.




4-3 Salute the original music——Remix based on original music

In recent years, the mainstream of composing TouHou fan music is reshaping original music. Actually, we’ve chosen a different way when we developing game music. We decide to use the remix adaption of original music (which is closer to original music). So far, we’ve completed 23 songs. Well, that’s not the end. This number is still raising.
