“Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit took the best out of older games but also added its own personality into it. It doesn’t feel just like a copy of another game; it has its very own identity and a great one at that. This is a must play for any fan of the adventure game genre.”
9/10 – Capsule Computers

“Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit is an evolution of the point and click adventure, and long live this revolution of the genre if it’s of this quality.”

About This Game



Legends of the past come back to life in this charming European mystery point-and-click adventure.

Crowns and Pawns, a modern-day detective point&click adventure, inspired by classics such as Broken Sword, The Curse of Monkey Island, Still Life, Syberia and others. The game highlights the less explored history of Europe to the world of adventurers. Experience the legendary stories of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, bring to light the conspiracy of the villainous branch of the KGB, solve puzzles and follow hints to reveal the secrets of the King who was never crowned.



The story follows a girl from Chicago, Milda, who unexpectedly receives an inheritance from her grandfather – a house in Lithuania. She sets off to Europe, but upon arrival she is threatened by an unknown man, demanding that she gives up her inheritance. Determined and intrigued by the mystery, she explores the run-down house, discovering old documents and clues dating back to the 15th century. Before long, Milda gets dragged into a dangerous search for a long-lost mysterious relic with a curse...



  • A blend of history and myths set in a modern world, featuring real life locations all around Europe.
  • Crowns and Pawns is led by the art director of the highly acclaimed fan-adventure Broken Sword 2.5.
  • Classic point-and-click puzzles that involve finding items hidden in beautiful environments, creatively combining the contents of your inventory, interesting dialogue choices, and more!
  • Feel like a detective uncovering the conspiracy behind a cursed relic.
  • Beautiful hand painted art that comes to life with a touch of modern graphics features.
  • A world that reacts to your decisions.
  • Change the looks of the main character to solve puzzles (or for fun!).
  • Fully voiced dialogue.
  • Music written by the award winning composer Daniel Pharos (A New Beginning, Memoria, Blackguards).
  • A control scheme perfectly adapted for the best possible experience with both a mouse and a gamepad.



The mystery detective point&click adventure is brought to you by the award-winning indie game development studio Tag of Joy.
