Chuhou Joutai developer Drillimation Systems has released a new danmaku role-playing game under the title of Touhou Kourinden ~ Mythos of Phantasmagoria on Steam and itch.ioTouhou Kourinden ~ Mythos of Phantasmagoria is a game that takes place over the span of thirty years of the lives of Rinnosuke “Kourin” Morichika and Marisa Kirisame, from the latter when she is born to establishing the Federal Kingdom of Gensokyo as its queen. Mythos of Phantasmagoria is set on the same timeline as the Chuhou Joutai trilogy, taking place 300 years before those games’ events. The demo was released on Steam two months prior and is the second Touhou Project fangame to be released by Drillimation, after Touhou Meijinka ~ Song of Divine Tempest which they co-developed with the Vietnam-based Studio Emiko and released last December.

The game was created to compete with Toby Fox’s Undertale, and aside from borrowing the system from that game, it also incorporates mechanics from two other JRPG franchises, being Final Fantasy and Pokémon. It features four playable characters with their own stats, alongside over 60 different pieces of equipment and 80 different skills to learn. Its graphical aesthetic resembles games made on the Adventure Game Interpreter by Sierra. The musical score was written on the YM3812 chip to get the same feel as Sierra’s games, as well as other Western PC games developed at the time. The score is a mix of remixed Touhou Project and Chuhou Joutai songs, as well as original tunes. Unlike Drillimation’s previous games, the score takes on a classical approach.
