    Not a Touhou one but they are doing a new one based on the Record of Lodoss series. Looks about as good regarding spritework and animations.

    Does that one have the grazing and time manipulation mechanics? Those were the main factors for me with lunar nights.

    Unfortunately, neither of those mechanics are present. Labyrinth focuses more on that Symphony of the Night feel with movement tech, light environmental puzzles, and elemental powers.

    EoSD Hard 1CC is so close, and yet so far, so I decided to go for IN 1CC to relax a bit. Border Team is probably strongest shot type in the whole series for survival.

    Lmao at those prices, but i guess ZUN needs the cash to feed his alcoholism. Beer doesn't grow on trees i guess.

    Touhou as in the actual games by Zun rather than the fangames, memes or doujinshit, has a microscopic audience that is more than willing to bear those prices, content to be able to buy the game online at all rather than ordering a CD from japan. Zun isn't making a mistake here, lowering the prices further won't bring much more of an audience while ending up with less total profit made, this isn't stardew valley, you ain't bringing thousands more of buyers for every penny you remove.
    The touhou shmups proper are even more of a niche of mostly enthusiastic fanboys than the average shmup series. They're barely represented in shmup communities like system11 and system11 alone has a larger membercount than all three biggest touhou forums combined. There's just no money to be made trying to get cheapo for the sake of selling a large amount of copies (not ever happening)

    Dariusburst cost 45 euros outside of sales and it has quite the enduring megathreads. Price isn't everything in pure niche markets.

    I highly, highly recommend Rabi Ribi if there's some of you who enjoyed Luna Nights but want something.. more. More content, more thought into how to make complex spell cards work in a platformer, ability to somewhat makes builds for your character, more everything. Having played that one before the other, I must say, while I enjoyed Luna Nights, I feel like I had already seen the sights of what a game inspired by Touhou put into a platformer format should really play like.



    Although it's not a touhou game, the dev is clearly a touhou fanboy just trying hard to not call his game touhou. And in purely gameplay terms, it feels more Touhou than the actual touhou platformers in general. I have never seen a game containing such an insane variety of bullet hell patterns too. There's so many boss encounters (they are the true meat of the game) and they all have a great variety of spell patterns.. boss rush mode is like 1h+ of gameplay of insanity

    I wonder if they're going to release the rest of Windows games.

    At least Phoenixx Inc. keeps publishing more Touhou doujin games with English localization on Steam. Some kind of tactical thing and puzzle platformer thing.

    I remember playing rabi-ribi like a year or two before lunar nights and I didn't like it much for some reason, don't quite remember why, never finished it, I think I got to about half way then gave up.
