The two characters are alternately controlled, where the objective is to open the correct doors of the dungeon to get to the exit as quickly as possible before everything collapses. The look is reminiscent of classic video games with more minimalist touch of pixel art. There are 60 levels until the end of the game, and after each stage, a score is shown based on the time taken and items collected.

The world is ending. But it's not as scary as you think. Well, maybe it is.

We all make choices in life. Except most of those choices are not within the context of the apocalypse. Meet the staff of the Department of Pre-Apocalypse and Post-Apocalyptic Affairs: Arthur, Iris, Oliver, two of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and others. Their job is to make sure the transition from one way of life to another is as smooth as possible... you know, as smooth as an apocalypse can be. Their latest assignment is a doozy - a new Great Flood that is going to wipe the planet clean. A daunting task for anyone, and these anyones just happen to have a metric boatload of emotional baggage. Will they get their collective stuff together in time to pull of a perfect end-of-the-world?

That's up to you.

You get to make the decisions that will shape our heroes. You get to choose how they will react to the moments that will stay with them forever. Taking each of their lives into your hands, you get to make their choices for them, for better or for worse. It's part adventure game, part visual novel.

How will you end the world?


Take control of every main character as you choose how they respond to situations.

A Tale of Crowns

A Tale of Crowns video game by cherry

Made by cherry

Chapter Seven has been released!

A Tale of Crowns is a high fantasy romance with Middle Eastern roots, both on pc as well as mobile! Its entirely text-based, with choices throughout to shape both your main characters personality and skills as well as influence their relationships with others. There are four love interests for you to choose from, both female as well as male, each with their own stories and secrets for you to uncover!

Followmy tumblr blog for the latest developments! There is also a Discord server you can join; everyone that's 16 or older is welcome!

I will release each chapter as I finish it, so the game will be a continuous work in progress. It will not be available for download until the entire game is finished.

CONTENT WARNINGS: Violence, death and murder, trauma and PTSD, sexually suggestive themes. RATED 16

The story takes place in Arsur, a fictional empire within a fantasy universe that draws inspiration from historical settings in the Middle East. Much of it is based on Kurdish culture, drawing from my own experience as a Kurdish woman.

Your character is 25 years old and was born and raised in Arsur, where magic is considered a skill no different from reading or writing. Gender, sexual orientation, and race have no bearing on social position or class; it is instead only based on wealth and level of education.

The Arsurian Empire itself is overseen by a single ruler known as the Crown. Unlike traditional monarchies, however, the title is not inherited through blood. Whenever the Crown dies, their famed golden eyes pass on to the one chosen by the spirits of this world to be the new Crown: this appears to happen at random, as Crowns in the past have ranged from the poorest farmer to the wealthiest noble.

Their parents murdered and the previous Crown of Arsur assassinated, your character finds themselves on the run as theyve been bestowed with the golden eyes that mark them as the new Crown.

Unseen enemies at their heels, will they succeed as the Crown, or will they lead to the downfall of the Empire?

At the beginning of the story, youll have the opportunity to customize your Crowns name, pronouns, sexual orientation, and their skill in magic. You can also customize many parts of your Crowns appearance: hair color, hair texture, hairstyle, skin color, height, and clothing style are all up to you and will be reflected in the story as well.

Their backstory and ethnicity are locked in. The Crown is also locked in as a person of color, as is in line with the setting - their specific race is up to the player to imagine.

As for your Crowns personality, there are twelve different character traits in total, six of which will be decided based on the choices you make in-game. This will subsequently change your Crowns behavior during story and romance scenes.

Depending on what your Crowns sexual orientation is, the gender of the love interests will change accordingly to match that. There are four of them in total, and each love interest will have their own route which you will get to choose from at the end of the common route.

The Sorcerer; RozerînRêzanThe Crowns Sorcerer, widely regarded to be a prodigy and expected to become the most powerful magus in the Empire.The Hero; XelaraXelefA legendary mercenary and the leader of the Crescent Blades, whose exploits were chronicled in song. Also known as the Pale Sword.The Protector; AshtiAzadOnce a peerless soldier in the Imperial Army, now promoted to the Royal Protector of the Crown due to their unrivaled skill and exceptional integrity.The General; DelalDaraThe General of the Imperial Army, known for many strategic victories in warding off attacks from hostile nations.Artwork of the characters done by artbygaia; the other half of the genders will also be done in the future!If you'd like some resources or visual references for the story, my blog has pages to help with designing your MC, as well as more background information about the setting and what it is based on! There's also a FAQ if you run into any problems or have other questions. Additionally, I have a walkthrough on the blog for how to get a specific LIs route, if anyone is struggling with getting the bad ending!
