The Crown of Leaves

The Crown of Leaves is a hybrid of non-kinetic visual novel and point-n-click adventure, that will tell you a story about mysticism, riddles, constellations, anthro, beasts and ghosts! Three chapters are planned for release; The first chapter has already been released - and it's here. Roui, a resilient city dandy, a half-educated jeweler and the author of scientific magic articles, dealt with a colossal failure and had to return to his homeland: Latori. Science isn't a thing here, and local shoddy mystical beliefs are really irritating and dejecting to Roui. He dreams to return to his old life... But how can it be possible if you have no money? One day, a prosperous local baron commissioned him for a bracelet, a gift for his lovely bride. Roui, in need of the extra coin, graciously accepted the order... But not long afterward he faced a new problem - the Mad Rook, a legendary and mysterious spirit, began to meddle in the lives of the locals, including Roui's. This spirit, an entity that plays tricks on mortals once a year, is possessed with strange magic and a dark sense of humor. Despite all the strangeness of the story, everyone can find something parallel to their everyday life and see themselves in one of the characters. This story will capture you and won't let you go until the very end.

Review from Steam

This is a game I love deeply, and will probably love for a long time after this. I don't have much money but I wish I could support the developers as much as I can. There is no game I love more than this one, even AAA games don't feel as special as this game. A review like this would not give it the proper justice it deserves.
I could talk about this game for hours to someone, but I don't know anybody else who plays this game and likes it as much as I do.

Review from Steam

So I bought this game a while back because it was 5 bucks and so why not buy it. And I was astounded by how beautiful the game was. The characters are another high point as well. All of them have distinct personalities and backstories that are just dying to get flushed out. The first chapter while not the most interesting thing in the world is still a fun thing to play through with there being 3 paths that all lead to the same endpoint. However you can't blame the first chapter for not being the most amazing thing in the world because it is an epilogue for the rest of the story. Which brings me to the second chapter. It starts off right where the first chapter ended. But this chapter is where the story gets very interesting and I became even more engaged with the game. The visuals are even more stunning for this chapter as well. The second chapter ends off as a cliff hanger as well which is to be expected. Overall an absolutely fantastic game that's absolutely worth the seven bucks for the game and the dlc. Though you'll have to wait on the third chapter to come out at a later point which will probably cost 2 dollars like the first.
The things this game does really well are:
Atmosphere - I absolutely love the atmosphere of each of the areas especially with the soundtrack complimenting them.
Soundtrack - This game has a wonderful soundtrack that compliments the game very well but it is very good by itself. It's worth the dollar and it throws the devs some extra money which they very much deserve.
Character design - The character design in this game is phenomenal. I could gush over it all day. Every character is unique and even background characters all have their own flair.
Backgrounds - The backgrounds in this game are beautiful each one of them being their own work of art. They all fit the atmosphere and are just pleasing to look at in general
Dialogue - Each character you talk to has their own dialogue tree. It's just perfect enough where it doesn't feel too short, but doesn't feel too cumbersome either.
In Game Mechanics - The mechanics are very simple but they are quite enjoyable. It creates a great combination of point and click adventure and visual novel
The Universe - The universe inside the game is quite expansive however we only explore a small part of it but it could easily be built upon. If you read the dialogue there's many different races, regions and different worlds entirely. The universe is just begging to be further built upon and could be easily adapted to different types of games.
The Story - The story is quite unique from anything I've played and the universe plays a big part in how the story plays out. However I can't go into too much detail without spoiling the story.
This doesn't really fit into a category, but if you pay attention to the backgrounds they change as you progress. It's not like characters you directly interact with as well it's just a nice attention to detail.
I really only have two minor inconveniences. One is that while the translation isn't bad (unlike what the negative reviews would like to tell you) it's just that there's some typos and minor grammatical errors here and there. It's not like broken english just some minor flaws within the script.
The other thing I noticed was that in the second chapter some of the animations for the mouths just needed a touch more polish and it's really only something you can realize if you're really paying attention.
My final thoughts are that this is a magical game that's worth every cent. It is highly underappreciated and deserves way more recognition than it does because of how much it does right.

It's really good. It's got great design and art, and the story and worldbuilding is engaging. Absolutely worth the price.

Review from Steam

Ok, where do I even start...
HOLY JAM THAT WAS ONE HECK OF A RIDE. A vibrant world full of thoughtful details, colorful personalities and a story that resembles a ball of yarn after it was given to a bunch of playfull kittens, so convoluted and bizare, yet so intriguing at the same time you can't help but dive in headfirst, and all that neatly wrapped in gorgeous art and animation. Can't wait to see what chapter 3 would reveal.
If you like reading good stories - you need to give this one a go. You'll love it, I promise.

Review from Steam

This game has astonishing visuals and the style of it is just beautiful.
To top it off, the story is really well told and got a wonderful depth to it.
Although the game starts a bit slow, as soon as it caught your interest it will drag you in and makes you want to know about the world.
The characters are wonderfully designed both visually and personality wise.
Both the attention to detail and the execution of making the details part of the adventure is just lovely.
I adore the gameplay style, although I got stuck from time to time.
Overall, if you couldn't tell, I love this game and can very much recommend it!
