Now that steam has some big sales to it, what are some of the best touhou fan games I can get there?

>> No.22517267

I recommend buying Gensokyo Night Festival. It's pretty cool, unique, and definitely worth your money.

You should support content creators

I do think that doujin type games should be nowhere near as expensive as AAA titles.

you can always order doujinshi on the internet and have it shipped

but given that not even 1% of people who consume doujin anything does this steam is probably fine

>> No.22519572

also between the 30% cut that resellers take and the extra 20% you'll have to put in for overseas shipping, steam's 30% cut is unironically better if you're buying the same game

this is assuming for the moment that you're buying something directly from the creator and not a translation, in which case the creator probably gets something between like 10% or zero idk how it works

This. The revenue authors get is higher than steam's with Epic Games.

>> No.22520090

Epic only cares about getting high profile indie games onto their platform. There is no chance in hell that doujin games are going to be getting onto the Epic Store. A higher revenue split doesnt mean anything when the store has less users, less features, and probably requires games to be translated. Plus I really doubt any Japanese people use the service to begin with.
Its also worth noting that (at least in terms of Touhou fangames) ZUN hasnt given his permission to sell on the the Epic store.

Lets also keep in mind that when it comes to doujin culture in general the people who create doujin works are not really that worried about making money off of their creation. Its more about the passion of the hobby and sharing what youve made with others. Hence the reason why a pretty large amount of doujin creators actually end up losing money overall when attending Comiket.

>> No.22520129

>company only cares
That sounds like propaganda.
Authors get a better revenue from Epic Games than steam.

>> No.22520191

how much cut the author gets doesn't matter in this particular instance because there are in fact no doujin games of any kind whatsoever on the epic games store, and a bigger cut of zero dollars is still zero dollars so it's honestly inexplicable why anyone is talking about it in this thread. the games you want people to buy on your super great better-than-steam storefront simply do not exist.

in the digital distribution of doujin games, steam is simply not competing with epic games. it's competing with shit like dlsite and toranoana and i'm pretty sure those places have even more shit rates than steam does.

>> No.22520236

The fact that Epic has had a very consistently been poaching games off of Steam and the fact that the only indie's they've thrown sacks of cash at are highly anticipated ones paints a very clear picture. There is no chance Epic would start accepting doujin games, especially with how strict they are with whats allowed on their store and, again, I really doubt they would allow untranslated or super niche games on there.
Plus the general scummy behavior from them makes me never want to see doujin games on that store. Do you want to start seeing doujin games being "Epic Store Exclusive"? Yeah me neither. The way that store operates in general is very anti doujin.

As far as I remember DLsite takes a much higher cut than the standard 30%, not sure about others though. There could be some Japanese sites that have a much better split but when you consider the fact that ZUN and other doujin creators started putting their games on Steam specifically to make them more easily available to international fans it ends up not mattering.
Im not trying to shill Steam or anything here im just trying to make the point that its the overall best option whether we like it or not.

>> No.22520244

>The fact that Epic has had a very consistently been poaching games off of Steam

I'm not the retard trying to paint something that directly benefits the author as some conspiracy.

>> No.22520423

Not when their games wont be accepted and wont sell as much even if they did. You are assuming that Epic would even be interested in super niche games and that they would even allow something that is not translated (which Steam doesnt require). Not to mention doujin games are almost entirely amateur works that they wouldnt be interested in having on their store.
You also seem to have missed my point earlier, which is that doujin creators are not in it for the money (for the most part). Its about the passion and sharing that passion with others. When the goal is to share your work with as many people who would be interested as possible its kind of counterintuitive to start selling on a store that will try and make your shit exclusive to their platform. Just because someone makes more money per sale on the Epic store doesnt make it better for business or better for consumers (which the Epic store certainly is not).

>> No.22520433

Imagine being such a peasant that you need a vendor when you can go buy the fucking game from the creators themselves instead of being the loser that uses garbage services with shit tier translations to get his games dumbed down for normalfags.

Yeah just go to Japan and buy it personally, its that easy. Or perhaps you could buy it digitally from the creators own store, which I really doubt like 99% of them have.
>shit tier translations
What part of Steam doesnt require translations dont you get? Notice how none of the official Touhou games have translations (except for AoCF sort of).
>games dumbed down for normalfags
Name one doujin game not just on Steam but even on Playstation or Switch that had to be "dumbed down" to "appeal to normalfags". You cant, because this is a non argument using a boogeyman that doesnt exist when it comes to doujin. Doujin creators like ZUN dont give a fuck what the audience thinks because doujin is ultimatley about making something you want first and foremost and sharing with others who might be interested second, profits be damned. Doujin creators arent going to start dumbing down their works or changing how they do things for "the normies" because thats just not how the culture works.

Zero dollars, which is the total amount of all doujin game revenue on the Epic Game store, is not higher than literally any amount of dollars that exists. That's not "semantics." It's a fact.

That wasn't the point. Doujinshi is by its very nature amateur work so it doesnt need professional level translations. Would it be preferred? Sure, but you cant expect doujin creators to pay the cost of one. Hell im sure alot of these translations were done by the devs themselves (and for alot of them it shows). What im getting at is comments like >>22537525 are useless and offer nothing, not even an explanation as to why its bad. Alot of doujin creators know that there is an english speaking audience that wants to enjoy their work so the fact that an effort is being made to make that happen is still a good thing even if the translations often arent the best. Hell, id argue not hiring some big company or top level translator is more true to the doujin spirit.

I just want a PoFV 2.0 kind of game by ZUN released on steam and ''random oponent matching system'' as online mode to play or server list that is possible to join as a spectator. While level of danmaku would increase steadily as a player gained XP, decided by many factors, using hamachi to play PoFV with someone is for people with special needs and many times the latency between 2 players despite good connection is so out of synch that it's basically random on who wins.
