Celestial Crowns is a fantasy/romance visual novel. Customize your character, go to war, learn magic, and so much more! 


Set in a world where they worship the stars, play as the newly crowned Ruling Monarch of the kingdom of Lauté. In ancient times, the Royals were masters of the elements with the ability to spellcraft that made people believe they were gods. Nowadays, the ability has faded with misuse, and the only Royal left known to have this ability is King Aalam of Andromeda. With your kingdom on unsteady ground after your father's recent assassination, this dangerous King with magic beyond comprehension  has an offer you can’t ignore:

Accept his hand in marriage, or go to war.

Love interests


Sahi is the general of the Lauté army. He is very much against both options and feels that there has to be a middle ground, somewhere. But his aversion to the marriage option may have something to do with the fact that he's been hopelessly in love with you for years.


 Aalam is the King of Andromeda. For unknown reasons, he is determined to have your hand in marriage. But no one knows anything about him, not even what he looks like. Can you really accept stepping down from your throne to join him in Andromeda?


Lune is the Royal Advisor. He believes you should accept King Aalam's offer of marriage before irreparable damage is done to both countries. Lune doesn't think you're fit to rule and isn't afraid to tell you. It's not like he likes you or anything.

All 3 love interests have their own plot within the overarching story of Celestial Crowns. The routes will vary greatly, feature 50K (estimate) words of new content, and allow you to visit new locations and meet new characters.

story-driven narrative with stat-building aspects that allows a unique experience in each playthrough.


Create your character: The default player name is "Terra," but you can adjust the main character's name and choose their body type and pronouns.


Choose your personality: Your choices will add stats to the MCs personality. Mix and match different traits to shape different scenes and find your ending. Players will have choices based on 9 different traits. There can be as many as 9 different options for every choice encountered.  More stats in certain traits will unlock more choices down the road for endless replayability!

Find your affinity! Your spellcrafting  element will be determined by the choices you make in the common route. Throughout the game, you can master ice, fire, earth, or lightning. Spellcrafting is featured more heavily in some routes than others.
