Trick Nostalgie (トリック・ノスタルジー, Torikku Nosutarujī) is the name of JynX's doujin circle and the banner under which they release their work. It is a Japanese doujin game developer that specializes in shoot 'em up games and music. Its releases so far have been the Len'en Project games and arrangement albums related to the Touhou Project. It's unknown as to how and why JynX created the circle.

Name[edit | edit source]

The name "Trick Nostalgie" does not have a clear meaning. "Nostalgie", an old spelling of "nostalgia", possibly references the PC-98 games of the Touhou Project as JynX is known to create remakes of them, where "trick" can reference the fact that JynX usually uploads video footage without releasing the actual games to the public, creating a type of fool. The middle dot () in the name is used in foreign names to show where the next word begins.

Members[edit | edit source]

  • JynX — General Producer/Game Designer/Character Graphics/System Graphics/Background Graphics/Sound Effects/Script/Illustrator/Music

Just like ZUN, JynX appears to be the only member of Trick Nostalgie. In other words, JynX does the programming, art, and music entirely all alone. While this is true, Rei, Zelo and Kanae Tabinoki are also listed as members of the circle.[1]

Additional Information[edit | edit source]

The circle logo displayed when starting up a danmaku shooting game.
  • In the circle logo that is displayed when started up the danmaku shooting games, the bird that is writing out "Trick Nostalgie" in English bears a striking resemblance to surrealist artist René Magritte's The Large Family.
  • Trick Nostalgie has occasionally been abbreviated as TriNos (トリノス, Tori no Su), as seen highlighted on the circle's logo at the start of many youtube videos, which is a pun on "Bird's Nest" (鳥の巣, Tori no Su).[2]
