Umineko no naku koro ni

"As she raised a glass of water, everyone exptected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired, "How heavy is this glass of water?" The answers called out ranged from 8oz. to 20 oz. She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. think about them for awhile and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything. Always remember to put the glass down."

Looks cool but I think I prefer playing the actual visual novels since those are amazing to read.

Since it's a doujin, I don't think this game will be a part of the storyline considering it was fan made.

The entire series is doujin in that it is an amateur production. Just like how even the main Touhou series and those made in collaboration with ZUN are "doujin".

Similarly, the fighting game is made in collaboration with Ryukishi07 and 07th Expansion. It's doujin, but it is not fanmade, because its nature as doujin comes from being an amateur project, not from being fanmade.

Also, the fighting game itself is named Ougon Musou Kyoku, while the series for which it is a spin off of is Umineko Naku Koro ni. It's developed by 07th Expansion in collaboration with people who know how to code fighters, so it is an official part of the franchise, though it does not fit anywhere into the storyline specifically, so far as I can tell, nor does it progress the plot.

That pretty much sums why I think it's not canonical to Umineko despite it being official.

It hardly matters because it's all made up by Battler.
