Imperishable Night is the 8th game in the main series of Touhou Project. The moon's been replaced by a fake one, and the youkai don't like that, so it's up to the protagonists to get to the bottom of it. The main gameplay gimmick is that each of the three human (and one part-human) playable characters is paired up with a non-human character whom they can shift to by focusing. It also has an unofficial English patch that makes the characters cuss like sailors.

"Now, bitch, get out of the way!"

Full Unlock Code

Imperishable Night follows up the previous two games with yet another full unlock code.

On the Score Ranking menu, hold either Shift or Ctrl and press Right five times, Left one time, D two times, and Q three times. If done correctly, you'll hear the 1up sound, and the Extra Stage, all solo characters, and all practice stages and spell cards (including Last Word spell cards) will be unlocked for all characters and difficulty levels.

Music Oddities

Extracting the game's MIDI soundtrack reveals several oddities:

  • The first track in the soundtrack, track 00, is not the menu music but rather the Stage 1 theme, "Illusionary Night ~ Ghostly Eyes". It's possible that because the song originally appeared on ZUN's album Ghostly Field Club, the song's MIDI was simply copypasted into the game's soundtrack before the rest of it was written. The menu music, "Eternal Night Vignette ~ Eastern Night", is track 01.
  • The numbering on the soundtrack skips over track 02, likely because the song that would normally go there, the Stage 1 theme, is track 00.
  • th08_16.mid (Ending theme) has some notes after the loop, though they seem to be a copy of a main part.
  • The MIDI files from Trial Version 0.02 are malformed, and don't play correctly outside of the game.
