Hey there! Today, we're chatting with the mastermind behind 'Celestial Crowns'. We will chat all about the visual novel, what inspires their work, and much more! Be sure to check out all of their links after you read all about it.
1. Tell us a little about yourself and work?
My name is Min and I'm a solo dev. My brand name is "Harlevin VNs." I started making visual novels in 2015 and have since published individually or worked on collaboratively ten works.
2. Tell us about your BL game?
I have a few games that fit into the BL category. My current project is called "Celestial Crowns," and it lets you become a Monarch in charge of a fantasy kingdom, where you must deal with the recent assassination of your father, and a proposal from a neighboring kingdom. It features a personality system where most choices are tied to nine different traits, with up to nine options for each choice for more replayability.
3.What inspires your work?
Visual novels in general are very inspiring to me, I love the medium and feel it's my favorite way to tell stories.
4.What does pride month mean to you?
Pride month to me means a time to celebrate and lift up people in the queer community, which I am proud to be a part of.
5.Where can people support your work?
Most of my visual novels are free and can be played at https://harlevin.itch.io
6.Tell us about anything you want! Can be something you are working on, something positive, or something totally random!
I will be launching a Kickstarter shortly! It will be my second attempt to raise money for Celestial Crowns. The first was unsuccessful but still raised nearly $14,000, so I think with a smaller goal and project scope we can get there this time. You can follow the prelaunch page here to be notified when we go live in the fall: HERE
