Touhou Kishinjou ~ Double Dealing Character, the fourteenth game in the Touhou Project series of shoot-em-ups, is available on the Japanese Playism website. The game costs 1,512 yen and can be downloaded for PC (no Mac version is available).
Playism are known for helping bring a lot of the doujin games available via their website over to the West. Siliconera got in touch with the company to ask how the deal with Touhou developer Ohta “ZUN” Jun’ya came about.
“In regards to Touhou, we’ve essentially been approaching ZUN-san every time we’ve seen him over the last 3 years, and it was recently that he finally came around, agreeing that it would be a great opportunity,” Playism Marketing Manager Nayan Ramachandran replied.
“We’re super excited for Touhou on Playism. It’s a big step for Japanese indie games.”
I then asked Ramachandran if there were plans to release Double Dealing Character in English at some point in the future, and the answer was a “no comment”.
“In regards to an English version, we can currently neither confirm no deny an English version,” Ramachandran said.
