JynX (ジンクス, Jinkusu, pseudonym) is a Japanese game developer who has become well known for their remakes of stages from the PC-98 Touhou Project games, although these stages are usually only shown as teaser videos and never actually released to the public. They are the creator of the Len'en Project, a series of games inspired from the Touhou Project, which they have released to the public as free downloads. Additionally, they hold nightly livestreams as the vtuber Kanae Tabinoki.

General Information[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about JynX. It's known that they like to drink, eat, bathe and sleep. They are also able to cross their toes without using their hands.[1] As a creator, they aim to become one that "creates not for some other goal, but because they want to create".[2] Interestingly, JynX can be considered as having a Bird's Name themself: "Jynx" is the scientific genus for the wryneck, which is a type of woodpecker.[3]

They run their own doujin circle, Trick Nostalgie and a blog named Unreal Indolence Record. They also opened a pixiv FANBOX in November 2019. Additionally, on 14 January 2023, JynX started streaming every night around 23:00 (JST) under the Vtuber persona Kanae Tabinoki. Although not strictly related to the Len'en series, they do occasionally talk about the development of the series.
