Danmaku!! Let me AX you a question
« on: February 14, 2014, 06:57:10 PM »
I finally get to reveal the card game I've been working on with my friends.  I present to you Danmaku!!, a party game for Touhou fans.

Hidden Roles

Danmaku!! is a game of hidden roles, where players fight it out to discover who is their ally and who is their enemy. There are four basic roles, but there are also special roles that may replace one of the basic roles. The basic roles are as follows:

The Heroine wants to defeat the Stage Bosses sand Extra Boss.
Stage Bosses want to defeat the Heroine.
Extra Bosses want to defeat all of the Stage Bosses, then defeat the Heroine.
Partners want to help the Heroine defeat the Stage Bosses and Extra Bosses.


Special Roles
In addition to the four basic roles, there are seven special roles, which might replace the basic roles at the beginning of the game. Each of the special roles has a slightly different win condition, though they still count as the four types: Heroine, Partner, Stage Boss, or Extra Boss. With the special roles, you can never be quite sure who?s really on your team.

Stage Bosses
In addition to the basic Stage Boss, there are three special Stage Boss roles, each with their own particular win condition:

  • The Challenger is a Stage Boss that wants to defeat the Extra Boss before defeating the Heroine.
  • The Final Boss is a Stage Boss that wants to defeat the Partners before defeating the Heroine.
  • The Anti-Heroine is a Stage Boss that wants to defeat a fellow Stage Boss before defeating the Heroine.

Partners
Like the Stage Bosses, there is are special Partner roles with different win conditions:
  • The One True Partner can?t stand any other partners and wants to defeat them before defeating the Stage Bosses and Extra Bosses.
  • The EX Midboss isn?t really the Heroine?s partner at all! She wants to defeat the Stage Bosses, then defeat the Heroine, helping the Extra Boss win!

Extra Bosses
Extra Bosses have it rough, as they want to defeat all the Stage Bosses on top of defeating the Heroine. Fortunately, Extra Bosses have the unique ability to reveal themselves during the game in order to gain special advantage. There are two kinds of Extra Bosses:

  • The EX Boss can draw an extra card each turn while revealed.
  • The Phantom Boss has the ability to manipulate the Incident deck while revealed.

There are two cards for each Extra Boss: The EX Boss and the EX Boss Revealed; then the Phantom Boss and the True Phantom Boss. Be sure you only include the EX Boss and Phantom Boss cards when assigning roles. The other cards are used when the Extra Boss uses their reveal power.

The Heroine and the Rival
In addition to the Heroine, a player may be dealt the Rival card. The Rival is like a second Heroine. The Rival really wants to become the Heroine, and the only way to do that is to take down the current Heroine and take her place!


Selecting Roles

  • 5 players: 1 Heroine, 1 Partner, 2 Stage Bosses, 1 Extra Boss
  • 6 players: 1 Heroine, 1 Partner, 3 Stage Bosses, 1 Extra Boss
  • 7 players: 1 Heroine, 2 Partners, 3 Stage Bosses, 1 Extra Boss
  • 8 players: 1 Heroine, 2 Partners, 3 Stage Bosses, 1 Extra Boss, 1 Rival


Basics of Play

Danmaku!! is played in a circular, turn-based fashion. Each player has a hand of cards drawn from the Battle Deck. Players play these cards on their turn to try to attack other players. The most common of these is Shoot!.


Shoot! allows a player to attack another player in range. A player who is attacked has a chance to avoid the attack by playing a Graze! card; otherwise, they lose one life. A player that loses all of their life is defeated.

So what does ?in range? mean? All players start out the game with a Range of 1. This means you can attack a player whose Distance is 1 away. Cards such as Power can increase your Range, allowing you to attack further players.


Your distance to another player is the number of seats to the player, plus any Distance modifiers they have. Players sitting next to each other start at a distance of 1, but cards such as Focus increase your Distance modifier. This only makes you harder to hit ? you don?t count your own Distance modifiers when counting to another player. Also, defeated players don?t count, so as players are defeated, everyone gets closer.


The above chart shows the distance from A in a hypothetical game. Players F and G both have +1 distance. Note that distance modifiers other players have aren?t counted, so the distance from A to E is still only 3, even going through F and G

Characters and Bombs

In addition to choosing a role, at the start of the game, each player chooses a character from the Touhou universe to play as. Danmaku!! comes with dozens of characters to play as, each with their own unique Abilities and Spell Cards.

A character?s Ability allows them to bend the normal rules in their favor. These benefits are in effect throughout the game. In addition, each character has access to a Spell Card. Spell Cards are attacks that come with an additional powerful effect.


Players can activate their Spell Card by playing a Bomb card. Bombs can also be used to perform a ?Bomb Cancel,? countering a Shoot! or Bomb played by another player. This makes Bombs one of the most powerful and versatile cards in the Battle Deck.

Project Status (Danmaku Unstable 4-18 has been released.  Some character errata was released on 4-29)


This is today's errata release for the trouble characters:
http://danmaku.mysteryparfait.com/download/danmaku418/tts/ErrataPita5.jpg

Yuuka's bomb now attacks all.
Marisa got a complete rewrite, check her out.
Tenshi gained some independence from 1up cards, since her spell card is the only one with a downside.
Okuu got her new passive rolled into her bomb, trading utility for a triple attack.
Eirin's bomb is now Omiki/Cheers and heals herself and another for 1.

Changelog:

  • Several characters gained secondary passives to help them out
  • Remilia nerfed, now only draws instead of steals
  • Marisa steals regardless of whether or not she hits!
  • Okuu can also discard Invocation cards to draw 2
  • Meiling's max hand size is 7 on other player's turns
  • Futo gained Alice's "No discard powerups" as well
  • Miko can just give cards to another player once per turn
  • Party cards are now distributed secretly, Miko's bomb too
  • Satori gained a 25% evasion, making her the hardest to play base character.  Carrot wanted to unlimit her mind reading but it slows the game too much.
  • Reimu now bans categories, and they're listed on her card to help noobs.
  • Any dodge card counts against Reimu's passive (There's still only one kind in the base set, but this is future proofing)
  • Suika has +1 Range, and +1 Distance at 1 life
  • Nitori still has +1 Distance, but can also discard an Item to draw 1 card.  Not a good deal but it helps
  • Cirno has +2 Range now, she retains her blind spot and vulnerability to her own bomb.
  • Eirin's bomb now just heals any one player for 2.  That's still a lot by the card advantage rubrik but it's not as spikey.
  • Yuuka lost her Tempest bomb, her bomb now negates avoiding her attacks that turn.
  • Trashing a card via Seal Away is now optional
  • Carrot got sick of 4 player games sucking and is working on an alternate game mode.  The game now officially supports 5+ players only until he works that out
  • Carrot confirmed there are supposed to be 4 1ups
  • Anti-Heroine now only needs to kill 1 stage boss then the Heroine
  • Finally got the TPB's Incident ignoring on the card


Thanks for reading, I hope all of you download and enjoy Danmaku!!

A pleasant surprise, and wow, this is surely the first non-program/PC game that I've seen being released on RikaNitori. Usually they end up in Rumia's Party Games.

Do you intend to print them as real cards by a professional printing company?

Did I mispost? I thought that forum was for games on the forum, whereas this one is for game dev, even if it was assumed to be computer games.

We have every intention of printing them professionally.  Our goal for this year is to make it to Otacon and Gencon with the completed game, but with everything happening with our group this year that may be a tall order.

No you didn't miss post, since this is actually a real off-line playable game instead of Forum Game. Rumia is for text-based forum games though people have hosted board games there for fun online.

It is just rare to see such things appearing as fanwork from fans. I am quite surprised and amazed. And you even intend to release it at a con. Good luck!

Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaah!

I've been following this on Tumblr!
I remember in 2011 someone else tried to make a Touhou card game similar to Bang! as well, but the project died. This one, however, seems to be gaining much more momentum, and I'm really excited to see where it goes.

@Helepolis

Thanks for the well wishes!

@KrackoCloud

You follow us on tumblr? I'm amazed since I felt that of the social media sites it was the most dead.  I am admittedly bad at tumblr though.

Gaining any attention has been really hard.  The Touhou fanbase seems to be extremely decentralized.  We took an early alpha to Animefest last year though, and were able to get non-Touhou fans to play and enjoy the game, so we're confident in our work at least.

It baffles me how you received no attention with it.
The art looks amazingly well done and I really like the idea for the game, I would totally play it!

It's really a matter of engagement.  The creator of the Dilbert comic once said that the true test of his comics was if people showed them to their friends and coworkers.  We have to generate that kind of excitement as well. 

If anyone feels like helping out, it gives us a big boost whenever someone shares our posts.  We are planning some fun events to encourage this in the near future.  We usually update all the sites on Thursdays.  I will  also update this thread as well from now on.

Links ahoy!

Are you aiming also for the eastern fandom or just for west for now? Otherwise I would definitely suggest to record a NicoNico video where you subtitle in Japanese to explain the game and show some examples.

I think you should put the japanese site link on a more noticeable place like above the site banner, I didn't saw it earlier and actually have to look carefully to find it.

It's something we'd like to do in the future, but right now we're concentrating on the game itself.  The game is great at converting people into 2hu fans though. ;)

As long as it is purely for promoting the art instead of the game I think there shouldn't be any issues with that.

Though you'll need to think of your image file sizes, they exceed way for the 150kb we usually maintain. Please do something about that (thumbnail the art). Also it would be nice to avoid the 72pt  :V as it creates huge scrolling a long with the images. I edited them out for now as links, leaving you to decide/fix.

I've edited the sketch images down and will reformat the rest of the posts to fall in line.

I may post to the art board in the future but for now I'll keep it here.  Don't want to be too irritating with the promotions.

This looks like a really unique card game that seems very fun, I kinda flipped out when I saw how far it's been designed and have told a few of my friends already. With how popular Hearthstone is and a few other card games this seems like a good time as any since I'm sure someone will find it and try it out. Trying to think on how one could do a YouTube video promoting it, also can't think of any large card game website to spread the news about this around either. (not very huge on the card game scene...)

We believe in talking about things you have done instead of things you're going to do.  Though this has resulted in us being a bit unheard of ^^;

Also thank you very much for telling your friends. We really need to spread the word at this point.

Update Time!

China Hong Meiling, the Gatekeeper of the Scarlet Devil Mansion has joined the battle!

Meiling was illustrated by Finni Chang. She?s got a bunch of other work on her website http://finnichang.com/.



Meiling brings to Danmaku!! the power of . . . naps. We chose to go with the fanon interpretation and allow Meiling to take it easy for a turn, which gives her a nice card bonus.

Meiling?s spell card helps her perform her duties as a guard even while sleeping on the job. She can attack an aggressor and draw two more cards, giving her more opportunities to use a Graze! on behalf of her allies.

Also! Dejinyucu will be live streaming once again this weekend. This time she?ll be working on the Power card. I?ll post a reminder here and our other sites with the link.

Chile: 4pm! (Deji?s time)
EST: 2pm!
CST: 1pm!
PST: 11am!

Woot! Thank you!

For the time being those were the streams.  They were kind of an inpromptu thing.  Deji is scheduled to do more cards but at a later date. 

For those who missed them, these are the results.  Their backgrounds are in flux because first ones failed a print test.

We now have final art for two of the most important cards in the game: Bomb and Power. Both of these pieces were drawn by the very talented M. Beatriz Garc?a, a.k.a. Deji.

We have large versions you can download at our site.
