Demo is out now! https://mega.co.nz/#!tVMhjBaa!BQNOYBgESbWnPogbTYmgsMGtk5UOpvc5OXF0J0YqZsg
Hello Everyone!!

I'm here and looking for some help with a Touhou Fangame I'm currently working on :

I got a small problem, that I'm currently without much inspiration...

I'm looking for a plot for my Story and could use some help there...

Name of my Game : - Touhou - Miracle of the ancient god
The Game is an Action RPG for PC in the style of Secret of Mana (2D top down view, with Danmaku and Melee elements)

The Story/Plot ideas so far :

- The game takes place some time after the events of "Ten Desires" but before the events of "Hopeless Masquerade"
- The player will have later the choice to choose between "Hijiri Byakuren" or "Toyosatomimi no Miko" as an ally (turning the other one into a Boss later)
- Due to the events/actions from the Myouren Temple Crew crashing the Palanquin Ship into Makai, there will be a revisit / attack to/from Makai possible -> Boss fight with Shinki
- The plot will go through many areas from the original games, ranging from EOsD up to Ten Desire places

Mainly game features :

- Danmaku like elements (depending on how far I can push the process)
- A huge cast of touhou characters
- Group size of 4 characters (where some characters like Alice or such can summon additional characters)
- Configurable AI for each group member (like behaviour or scripts, like heal on low HP)
- Block Puzzles
- Some puns on other games like Castlevania and others

Hopefully I'm here at the right place, cheers!

When I try to think of a story for some reason for another, what I usually do is think about moments and scenes I would want to include, then form a plot to center around what I visualize. So if there are specific things you'd want to include, and think of a lot of them then fit them together like a puzzle.

Not sure if that helps, that's just what I myself do.

Ah, yes... I have some materials already, here's a short lineup :
- Sprites for almost every Touhou Character from Touhou EoSD up to Ten Desires (and a custom made Shinki sprite)
- Material for mapping, which also includes a custom made "Makai" tileset
- some music of which some is selfmade

Here's my work so far, it also includes an old "intro" trailer and some work in progress screenshots.


(since my last post got edited for some reason, im adding another post after this one......)

Interesting that we're approaching a demo release. I know that several RPG lovers roam occasionally around and they will most likely barge in to test when the demo is there.

Unfortunately I have to disappoint you  :ohdear:

I wish I could playtest and help out with many of the works here. But my time is limited and I cannot even test people's single dnh scripts. Usually also working on my own project time to time.

The game crashes when I try to use Reimu's normal attack. This happens in any direction, I've also reinstalled the game.

Downloading right now, I'll invest some time into it when I get the chance and give my experience with as much info as I can. I love playing these and they help me get inspired and get ideas for my own fangame. If I may ask, did you make the sprites yourself or are they a borrowed asset? I ask this because they look pretty similar in the way they look, they look good in short really lol.

It still crashes at the same action with the same message for me even after several redownloads, reinstalls and reboots.
Maybe the problem lies on my side or does anybody else have this?
