The Touhou Project, or simply Touhou, is a bullet hell shoot ’em up video game series developed by Team Shanghai Alice, a one-man Japanese doujin soft developer. Jun’ya “ZUN” Ōta, a member of the staff, has independently produced scripting, graphics, fiction, and music for the series since 1995, self-publishing 17 mainline titles and five spin-offs as of August 2019.
