A downloadable game

Crown Trick is a beautifully animated rogue-like RPG adventure characterized by turn-based combat and skill-item interactive strategy. The game has procedurally generated dungeons which means that every time you enter a dungeon it's a totally new experience.

No one knows what awaits you in the next room... Crown Trick!

From dark mages to zombies, from plants to beasts, the unique hand-drawn style dungeon is filled up with a great diversity of evils. Swords, bows, guns and staves... choose your own way to fight off whatever is in front of you.

Water, fire, ice, wind, poison and oil make up the world’s elements and they mutually affect one another and bring various new ways to damage your enemies. Discover more skills within the crown as you explore deeper and darker.

This. Game. Is. AMAZING! But I have one question. Will there be an Android port?

Please add a button in the settings by clicking on which the player can make a turn with the mouse! PLEASE!!

Only one week left to get your beta key! Check this gleam link and complete a couple of actions to receive the key :D



Please continue the game develop.

very cool so far.

excited to see what kind of cool combos and stuff we can do later on


Crown Trick is a turn-based rpg with awesome animations! This game is very cool!

Here is a concept of how the merchant room looks between the runs. You can buy some useful items, relics and also upgrade your weapon here!⚔

You will meet all kinds of weirdos in the Nightmare Realm... wait, is it a fishhook on his beard?🤔

When you spent too much time playing with the slot machine

(Screenshot from KnighWolf via Discord)

I have played both the closed alpha and the demo and I'm uncertain about one thing. In the demo after you die you awake in your hub or lobby and in that lobby you can use your soul crystals to buy permanent upgrades for the next time you enter the labyrinth. However from what I have seen of the closed alpha it looks like this feature is not present. Is the lobby not implemented yet or have I not gotten to a point in the game where I have seen it, or was the idea completely removed?

Hey Robin! Thanks for the question. We didn't add the main hall and character progression in this beta. So the recent beta may also be considered as a demo and we only included a short portion of the game in it. So don't worry, we didn't remove this feature at all. 


We just made new logo animation for Crown Trick. What do you think?

Okay so I didn't know this game was here, I just claimed the beta key from Alienware and I'm stuck at those frog shaped portals at the beginning, Once you click "That's it for now" the nightmare master never appears or gives you information at that part again no matter how many times you start a new game XD
Can anyone please tell me what to do ?

the game will have verção android and translation pt br please

What kind of strategy game is it if there is no real chess piece enemies?♟
Here is a sneak peek of how we implement one of the main boss battles in the full version of the game.

Sure! We've already talked to kingdyjin on Discord, we'd definitely like to have a look at the beta :)

Spent a couple hours on this game already and I already love it. It is very reminiscent of a lot of rogue-like games I've played before, but it still has some very unique features too. The art style is amazing and I want to see more of it. Can't wait for the full version.

Thanks a lot for giving it a try! We are gonna update the demo build real soon. Meanwhile you can join out Discord to stay tuned about the updates: https://discord.gg/FbaXFNm

THIS GAME IS VERY AMAZING! I love the fighting and the style *-* waiting for the full game <3 Greetings from Germany ^^

Thanks a bunch!


10 out of 5 Stars!!!

4 minutes in to Crown Trick and I had to stop to Wishlist it on Steam and write my review. Just from the Tutorial this game has captivated my attention. The quality of art and sound design/music is breathtaking. The game's mechanics; movement, attack, interacting are seamless and easy for anyone to understand. Adding all of this together makes Crown Trick one of the freshest games I've played all year!

Can't wait for the full Steam release!

Thank you very much! You positive feedback really means a lot to us. We will do our best to polish the game and deliver something special!

Crown Trick Demo FAQ 

Here is what we got so far:


Looks lovely, but, alas, melts my graphicscard. Its a pretty old one (Geforce 660Ti), but still should be able to handle this type of game at a reasonable temperature. Indie games based on Unity engine often seem to have that issue (but not all of them) - dont know why, maybe needs some kind of framerate limit? - Anyway, game looks nice, though i did not dare to play for long - best of luck to devs!

Had an absolute blast with this game.  Have familiar mechanics of other great rogue-likes but brings plenty of uniqueness and the turn-based combat is an awesome addition.  Can't wait for a full release.  If you want to see a bit of gameplay I did a Let's Try on Crown Trick but seriously just install it and enjoy it!
