東方Project (Touhou Project) is an OTL series of 2D (with 3D background) vertically-scrolling danmaku shooting games made for PC-98 and Windows, all made by Team Shanghai Alice (which has only one member: ZUN); though also has four fighting games made in collaboration with Twilight Frontier; and is also a manga series too.

Started originally in 1997, the first game, Highly Responsive to Prayers was released in 1997 by Amusement Makers for PC-98. Soon, by the time Mystic Square was released for PC-98 in 1998, the series went inactive for a while.

By 2002, the Touhou Project was back under a new 'company' and Embodiment of Scarlet Devil was released under Team Shanghai Alice for Windows; and thus ended the PC-98 Era. From then on, ZUN would create the Touhou Project for Windows, and at least 1-2 (rarely 3+) games was released per year (except 2006 and 2012), with the latest release being Double Dealing Character in 2013.

Other variants of this game/manga series have also appeared in other time-lines, but not limited to:
