A fast-pace, MICRO CARD GAME. Share our vision of publishing the first Touhou Project card game in English! Read more
Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator on May 8, 2014.
About this project
As suggested by backers, we changed the 25k stretch goal.
The 1 player-mode will take a lot more work from us, but we are willing to design a simple “Boss Stage,” where you can fight against bosses with high life. They will use their designated spell cards randomly to destroy your units and attack you. You will need to strategically place your units on the field, or construct your deck specifically to counter and defeat the bosses.

(For players) The GS System is an all-new micro card game platform that takes the best aspects of collectible card games and transforms them with modern concepts, wild mechanics, and fan feedback into something dynamic and amazing!
(What is special about the GS System) The GS System introduces game-mechanics which allows specialized customization so each, and every character featured in the GS System will be tailored accordingly.
(What is it?) Touhou Project is a series of Japanese computer games about a bunch of little girls firing laser at each other (yes, really). We have taken these characters and combined it with the GS System. Now rather than only shooting lasers, they will be able to display their powerful spell cards in the form of special attacks in the ultimate showdown!
Do I need to know what Touhou Project is to play the game?
Absolutely not. You will slowly fall in love with the characters of Touhou Project once you start playing!
As a micro card game, our goal is to compact as much value as possible into a single box. You will not need more than 1 copy of the game to unleash the full potential of the GS System!
Budget - Unlike traditional collectible card games, the GS System is created with the budget of the players in mind. With this as our goal, we decided to abolish the universal booster pack system. By doing this, not only will you be saving a LOT of money, but we’ve also eliminated all the dead cards you would normally obtain from buying booster packs, and thus, lowering the costs you would normally see associated with other card games.
Caliber – Are you tired of playing with the usual elves? goblins?
With the GS System, because there are so many incredible characters out there, we are very picky, and careful, about choosing which ones we work with.
Exclusivity - When we say exclusive, we mean VIP limited-edition exclusive. Exclusive cards will not be available for purchases, they will only be available through special events such as conventions, Kickstarter, contests, etc.
Touhou Project ft. GS System, is all about the characters. It is the characters that mold stories into unimaginable, beautiful master pieces. It is the characters who generously put smiles on your face, then ruthlessly steal your tears at the saddest moment. It is the characters, their design, personalities, and of course, flashy signature attacks that makes you fall in love with them.
The characters of our first set are from Touhou Project. The creator of Touhou Project is ZUN, (c) Team Shanghai Alice. This is a limited, exclusive print set, and unfortunately, it will NOT be available via commercial distribution channel such as your local distributor, retailers, or online stores. Why? More information can be found below in the FAQ section.
What is in the Game?
The game includes 3 Pre-constructed Decks (208 Cards). In order to give you a full collectible card game-play experience, these 3 pre-constructed decks are cross customizable.
To make it easier to learn the game, AND to keep the precious cards clean, 2 paper playmats are definitely mandatory.
And of course, what can go wrong with a beautiful, Illustrated, full-colored rulebook.
What are our Goals?
> We want to bring together both experienced collectible card games veterans and new players who have never played a card game before.
> We want to make it a card game which the whole family can enjoy. With such a huge variety of characters waiting for us to create, you and your whole family are sure to find your favorite cast of comrades to battle alongside of!
> To collaborate with publishers of all aspect. We aim to one day be able to work with bring this game to your local game stores!
The beauty of the GS System not only revolves around mesmerizing characters, but also, the many, little, simple mechanics that blend so well together for an intrigue gaming experience!
All of our reward tiers offer huge values, as well as the fact that these items are very, very limited. We wanted to make sure that you are not just making a donation to finish the game, we want you to feel like you are a part of the team in our final days of developing the GS System!
We have been in development for over a year now. The art, and the game-play, everything is looking incredible. We have come a long way, and we need your help to finish. With this last push we can officially KICKSTART Touhou Project ft. GS System.

If we can make our initial Kickstarter funding goal and nothing more, you can be certain that we are going to deliver a complete and fully satisfying card game. But if given the necessary funds, we have a robust number of “must-have” ideas for additional contents that would be extra fun to our already, really fun game!
Backer Icons will be here temporarily here until we find a better place to put them. More icons will be added soon.
Risks and challenges
With Touhou Project ft. GS System, our goal is to create an entirely new card game. Although we have a working prototype, we have to admit that there is still an unimaginable amount of reworks and tweaks that needs to be done. We have tested and revised the GS System hundreds of times, and we are confident to present to you a fantastic experience.
Every single step of this project is planned out. From finishing the game (play testing, artwork, card layout, etc), to production, to fulfillment logistics, we are confident in the completion this project. However, things may not always go as planned. Through thick and thin, good or bad, you will be updated with our progress. We are prepared to face the many different challenges in order to get a beautiful game into your hands. This is our promise to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
