Heyheyhey anyone who knows about this one and could share their opinion of it with me?

It reminds me of this fangame with in-game gacha system which I can't recall the name but as an app.

It says is a derivative work but officialy licensed hmm. And it seems it was released recently (at least internationally).

I like to have one or two casual games to play during breaks so I'm considering giving it a try if it's fun enough and the gacha isn't life-sucking.

It starts out as a visual novel (which I think is a really lazy thing to do) and I stopped playing after it was over. The next scene wouldn't even load on my phone. Within the first VN section, I was hit with "fanservice" right away, and I knew where their priorities were.

The portraits don't even change or move! They just wobble around. This is why I don't like visual novels. They're lazy and take zero effort to make. Just make a comic or manga or something! At least if you're focusing on the story, you're not being lazy about it.

Give me something like Final Fantasy or Persona! If it's an RPG, then it sure doesn't seem like it. Establish something, start with an odd statement, introduce the villain! I do like slow starts, but only if it has something interesting in it. It's not bad, just generic.

The opening is fine for the most part, and the tutorial is serviceable, but if this turns into a Gatcha game, I'm out. I don't do gambling.

Maybe I should play that Touhou Final Fantasy game I have on my hard drive.

Thank you for sharing.

To be honest turning Touhou into a cashcow with a gacha when all these years it has been relying on the work of fans including really well-made fangames which have been circulating for free or for such a cheap price (like the main games) feels like a turn-off.

Oh well. I guess it's time to go back to suffering in EOSD hell and maybe grab some rpg fangames here to compensate.

Even if it's a VN and gacha, I don't really care and i'll play it anyway. It's something that you wont need the characters and you don't compete with others. The game is just personal growth. It's a really casual game where you don't have to do anything if you don't want to, or you can spend a ton of time on it. If you don't want to play the game, you don't have to either. Because there is no other friend system, you wont really as bad as you would with a typical gacha game if you don't get what you want, nor feel the need to compete with others.

Same lol. I'll play anything that's free. As long as Touhou remains copyright free, I don't mind whatever people branch it out into. In my personal experience though...

Lost Word, alongside FE Heroes, Azur Lane, etc are the type of gacha games I have on my phone just to get log in bonuses and do dailies for a few minutes every day. But of those three, I feel I make the least progress with Lost Word, since the dailies aren't so great. The other two give you free pulls constantly so you can get new characters occasionally. But with Lost Word, 80% of my characters are from the anniversary event that happened last year where they were giving out wishes like crazy. They're also doing it again right now though, so it's a good time to start.

But don't expect that momentum to keep up. The game gives you like, 1 of those blue cubes every so often. I've literally been saving up those for a whole year and have like, 1 guaranteed character? (That I haven't even used because I'm waiting until they eventually add Okuu to the game hopefully pls).

Heck, if it weren't Touhou, I don't even know if I'd bother looking at it. There's countless other free games with bigger budgets and more immersions, but eh, this one's Touhou, so I stick with it I guess lol. So unless your me who just likes the small dopamine / routine of having something daily to do, I wouldn't recommend it.

You know, I actually downloaded and played it for a few weeks. the thing is that not getting the characters i wanted started bothering me a little too much for my own comfort, so i uninstalled it. 

I do have some previous experience with gacha, but for some reason this happened to me with this specific one. 

The gameplay gets boring fast, the odds for getting characters are pretty bad, the last few days I played were only a boring grind for gacha tokens. But the art is pretty, and the idea of having a team of your favorite characters together is something very appealing to me... but its a gacha. its not really a game more like a gambling casino. with  touhou coating. maybe thats why i reacted differently to this one.

Yeah... i was wondering if i did the right thing uninstalling it. it seems i did. im gonna go check out that touhou pokemon game. looks fun. in a non gacha way.

Lost Word, in my opinion, isn't a very good game, but it's story is pretty cool. If anything, I'd wait until more of the story gets released internationally before playing it. It's not the type of game where you have to dump money into it to be able to play through the main story (The three guaranteed characters are more than enough to clear the normal difficulty), so it's not like you'll have to whale at any point to actually play it.

 

I'm holding out hope that the player character gets turned into an actual character at some point completely because of their journal that automatically records their memories.

I played it again. The story was SO BORING that I never even got to play the FIRST LEVEL before I uninstalled it.

The story involves lootboxes appearing in gensokyo, and it's the players job to gamble their money away until they're broke.
I'm kidding, but not about the lootbox part. That is a major part of the story, at least from what I can tell.

I mean, come on! Touhou stories were kinda bad to begin with, BUT AT LEAST THEY'RE NOT BORING!

Don't play this game. Ever. How could Zun allow this? I know he lets fans monetize their works, but like this!? No. This game should be banned. It's tainted Touhou's image, and it's tainted everyone who's played it.

If you want a Touhou RPG, play that Final Fantasy crossover. At least it's not so boring that I uninstalled it before even playing the first level.
