Amusement makers, but I don't remember anyone else being cited in the staff roll. Doesn't mean that he couldn't have received some help though.
>Eh, that's basically like the game's manual though. The first Mario has a pretty interesting premise to it if you bother to read the manual, but that's pretty iffy when it comes to judging the game itself.
Not really a manual per se, you have the background of the characters and sometimes the background of the setting of the game (th7, for example). I actually read them after playing the games and it made feel everything feel more solid, story wise. Again, I'm mentioned them because that's where the "doesn't have enough depth" part is filled.
>It's a polish thing. Maybe that's just a nitpick. I said in my review that it might be due to Zun's, "stubbornness".
Don't get me wrong, ZUN could do with learning how to draw, what I meant is that the graphics as they are are sufficient, so to speak. It's not as bad as, say, undertale. For doujin standards it's pretty passable.
>You have to admit that there has been much much better though.
Doujin? Hardly. From guys who knew how to draw and spend their free time drawing in computers for years? Yeah. Most of the doujin floppy CGI specials suck balls (and for a reason, CGI drawing was ridiculously hard back in the 90's), and the one or two that don't were made by a guy with mad skills that later found a job in a company like C-ware, Telenet, Queensoft or elf or something (I have jedi somewhere, maybe I could upload it so you can see how ridiculous it is? I gave up ten minutes after trying to draw an eye).
Touhou is pretty respectable compared to other stuff, moreso coming from a guy who doesn't know how to draw. I actually haven't seen yet anyone using animated primitive shapes in their backgrounds, too. I'm not saying ZUN is good, I'm saying that they are pretty good for a 1996/97/98 doujin game, and actually better than some games made by companies.
