Six months have passed after Drillimation Systems voted to leave college. Even after that time has passed, the Prophet Driller received his college diploma, just one semester early before his original intended graduation on Friday, November 12, 2021. Drillimation Systems voted to leave college in the spring of 2021. And now, everything had come to a positive and happy end, despite pressure from advocates from switching careers.
Since the dropout, Drillimation had launched two new games and is working on a third one – Chuhou Joutai 2: Paraided!, Touhou 3: The Phantasmagoria of Dimensional Dreams NES Demake, and the in-development Touhou 4: Lotus Land Story NES Demake. Some players are still loving the games that Drillimation developed during the college era, and the Touhou 1: The Highly Responsive to Prayers NES Demake is still the most popular Drillimation game.
The Prophet can say that studying liberal arts can be one way to being a successful indie game developer. There can be many subjects of liberal arts that define the Drillimation Danmaku Universe.
- History – Kozan has a rich history, the characters must reflect on the mystery of who their ancestors are and how they influenced the land.
- Literature – The Drillimation Danmaku Universe is a work of fiction, and there can be many games that tell its story.
- Writing – The style in the Drillimation Danmaku Universe is unlike any other video game franchise. It spans a variety of themes, including romance, drama, science-fantasy, and more.
- Philosophy – The core value of the Prophet Driller for the games is simplicity. We want to uncomplicate things by making gameplay easy to understand even for first-timers.
- Sociology – Susumu Takajima’s interaction with the other characters helps him determine who he interacts with is a friend or enemy.
- Psychology – By looking into Susumu Takajima, you can unlock his powers through his fight or flight responses to the situations in the games.
- Creative arts – The Drillimation Danmaku Universe is enhanced by the artwork and music the Prophet Driller puts out.
May of 2021 will be referred to as their partial jump of independence. We still have another round of things we have to go through if we want to be fully independent.
