“Touhou Luna Nights is an exploration focused 2D action title from Indie development studio Team Ladybug.
The title has garnered Overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam and has sold over 150,000 units globally.
The protagonist is a recurring Touhou Project character, Sakuya Izayoi. Remilia Scarlet, head vampire of the Scarlet Devil Mansion sends her maid Sakuya Izayoi with no warning to a world much like Gensokyo, but not quite. With no choice but to search for a way out of this strange world of Luna Nights, Sakuya begins her journey.
The action in this title is heavily based around Sakuya’s inherent ability to stop time and her skills with throwing knives, all expressed through stunning sprite animations. Aside from this there is the well known Touhou Project Graze system where you can avoid enemy attacks just in time to restore HP and MP and promote an exhilarating style of gameplay”
