Isolated from the world by a mystical barrier, shrine maiden Reimu Hakurei and magician Marisa Kirisame live relatively peaceful lives in the land of Gensokyo, when they find themselves transported beyond the boundary and into the unfamiliar territory of the outside world. After a chance encounter with Sumireko, a human girl obsessed with Gensokyo and all its wonders, our protagonists eventually find their way back home—but now with an unexpected guest in tow. Sumireko’s arrival not only heralds chaos for Gensokyo, but also for the outside world and beyond! It’s up to Reimu and Marisa to unravel the mysteries that threaten their home and restore peace to the lands.

From Ankake Spa, the team that brought you Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, transcend the bounds of Gensokyo in this lovingly crafted Touhou Project fan-made game!



  • Shrine Maiden Skills and Magician Moves – Enemies may unleash fountains of projectiles, but you can counter them by inflicting heavy damage with spell cards, dealing powerful blows with purification rods, and slowing attacks with well-timed guards.
  • Get to Know Gensokyo – Help out friendly Gensokyo residents by finding lost souls, investigating strange areas, and engaging in mock battles. You’ll be rewarded handsomely, and you might learn a tip or two to aid you in your quest.
  • Customizable Action – Use your favorite skills in battle to level them up and upgrade essential stats like health and attack power to get tougher. Customize Reimu and Marisa to suit your playstyle and overcome the odds.
  • Don’t Forget to Accessorize – Every weapon, piece of armor, and accessory you find has randomized stats, so mix and match to make the most of them, or reforge equipment until it suits you.

Each Step Could Be Your Last! – Brave adventurer Lance loved to party, but one night he ate too much and fell into a deep sleep. The vile Vizardians then stole his treasure and even took all his weapons, leaving only his giant spear. Lance entered the catacombs of death to confront the thieves and recover his lost possessions, but he soon realized why the spear was left behind: It barely fits in these cramped rooms!

The Right Moves in the Right Order – In this challenging dungeon adventure, each room is a brain-teasing puzzle with tight turns, deadly traps and no margin for error. All you need to do is jab every enemy with your giant spear to unlock the next door… but sometimes you can’t even turn to face them, because the hallways are too narrow and the spear is too long. Sliding blocks, crumbling platforms, spiked floors… you’ll have to plan your moves carefully if you expect to recover all of your stolen treasure.



  • 5 different stages with 170 unique rooms
  • Secret levels to discover
  • 5 distinct enemy types
  • 12 types of traps and obstacles
