Doujin games are generally released for Windows-based computers, and, like doujinshi, doujin soft may offer games based on one or more intellectual properties, or entirely original works. The most frequent genres seen in this category of games are {{platformer}}s, {{fighting game}}s, {{RPG}}s, [[ShootEmUp shoot 'em ups]] (often BulletHell shooters), and {{visual novel}}s. These games are often released at special Japanese conventions, such as the Comic Market (a.k.a. Comiket) and Reitaisai. Depending on the game's subject matter, they can also be considered fan games (e.g., ''VideoGame/GriefSyndrome'' to ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'') or a {{Homage}} to another favorite IP (e.g. ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' to ''VideoGame/MegaMan''). Most of the time, doujin game developers manage to avoid getting {{screwed by the lawyers}} concerning the use of another IP, while a few others aren't so lucky. Case in point: ''VideoGame/RockmenR''.

In recent years, there have also been a very small but growing number of publishers, independent or otherwise, that localize these games outside of Japan and bring them overseas. There are also a few specialty online retailers that can import the original pressings of a doujin game, if copies are available in stock and if shipping the game in question isn't taxing on your wallet.
