Touhou Parody Games
Touhou Parody Games
This is a thread for sharing and discussing unofficial parodies of various games using Touhou. You know, stuff like Super Marisa World, Touhoumon, MegaMari, etc.
Here's a few to get us started:
MegaMari is a Megaman clone starring Marisa and Alice, who go around beating up other Touhou characters and stealing their abilities. Patchouli Knowledge plays the role of Dr. Wily.
Super Marisa World
A tribute to the Mario platformers, with Marisa once again as the star. The game parodies many different memorable Mario stages and bosses.
As the name suggests, this is a hacked version of Pokemon Fire Red, with nearly every Pokemon replaced by a Touhou character. This includes completely new type combinations, stats, and many unique new moves that fit each character. Many of the game's songs have also been given a Touhou touch as well. The game is constantly being updated, and while an English version has been made thus far, the Japanese version is still much more up-to-date.
The original Touhoumon was essentially just a retelling of Pokemon Fire Red, but there is also another version of Touhoumon that creates an entirely new world of Gensokyo for the player to explore instead. This is still an ongoing project, though, although a short demo has been released.
A useful Touhoudex resource can be found here:
An original RPG made using RPG maker. The game's mechanics, graphics, and some parts of the plot are based on Earthbound, but of course it stars the Touhou characters. While it is primarily a parody of Earthbound, it also delves into sequences inspired by other games, including Metroid (with Sanae as Samus!), Metal Gear Solid (Sanae again as Snake), Donkey Kong Country, and Castlevania (the entire Scarlet Devil Mansion sequence halfway through the game). The English version of the game is currently still in the works, but a demo has been released that contains about half of the game. It's a reasonably long game, at any rate; probably almost as long as the original Earthbound.
Also, here is the location for Touhoubound, in case anyone is interested. I don't personally have MegaMari and Super Marisa World, though; perhaps someone else could provide those.
As for me personally, I've been playing the Touhoubound demo recently. I loved Earthbound, and the Touhou version of it is a real treat. While the story and characters are all different, of course, it still brings a nice feeling of nostalgia. I guess that's the feeling you get when two things you really like are mixed together into something just as great. Ideally, that should be the feeling you get from each of these parody games.
More Touhou RPG
You know what's been eating up too much of my time lately?
Touhou Unreal Mahjong
Anyone got a learn mahjong in 3 sentences guide?
You need to match up a hand consisting of 4 sets of 3 and any pair. Your sets can be 3-of-a-kind or a straight, all of the same suit of course. In addition, in order to actually get points for your win, you must satisfy certain conditions that can be found here:
You can complete a 3-of-a-kind ("Pon") by capturing from anyone else's discard, but you can only capture for a straight ("Chow" or "Chii") from the person immediately preceding you, unless that is the tile that will win you the game. After a certain number of tiles have been drawn, if no one has won yet, that round will end and anyone who is 1 tile away from completing their hand may take a small number of points from the others.
Of course, since this is Touhou Mahjong, there's all sorts of extra stuff added in. Practically every single character from Touhou 6-11 are playable, each with their own unique spellcard that they can use to gain an advantage. For example, Aya can take an extra turn, Mystia prevents everyone from seeing each others' discards, Rin can exchange a tile in hand for one that she previously discarded, and Satori can peek at an opponent's hand. Also, each stage has its own house rules and remixed Touhou music. Apparently, ZUN himself helped out with the soundtrack, from what I understand. ZUN may also appear as an opponent during the game's story mode.
Here's a video I uploaded to demonstrate the gameplay:
Rejoice, for TOUHOUBOUND has been officially completed! The final game is fairly long for a fan-made game, and quite well done. It features nearly every Touhou character, plus tons of references to other games. Combine that with the plot and battle system of Earthbound, and lots of SNES-style Touhou music remixes, and you've got a remarkable fan game.
What's more, an English translated version of the full game just became available as well! You can download it here:
well most of these links seem deader than Yuyu-sama.
