  • Summary: Cinders is our latest project, and one were putting lots of hope into. It is our take on a classic fairytale in a genre that we havent tried before. The game is going to be an atmospheric Visual Novel of quality thats not frequently seen in the genre. We want the players to enjoy theCinders is our latest project, and one were putting lots of hope into. It is our take on a classic fairytale in a genre that we havent tried before. The game is going to be an atmospheric Visual Novel of quality thats not frequently seen in the genre. We want the players to enjoy the beautiful world of animated illustrations by Gracjana Zielinska, and offer choices that will make them question the somehow naive and banal morals of the classic story. The game is under steady development and should be released around Summer 2011 for Windows and Mac OS X. Expand

    Cinders’ story had me hooked from beginning to end, while its compelling cast of characters, the themes it explores and its deviations from the traditional narrative of Cinderella made for a surprisingly poignant tale that I won’t soon forget.

    Cinders is a fine experience to have at home or on the go. The developers have done everything I would have wanted in a port. If you’ve been waiting on checking this out or are just looking for a new visual novel on the Switch, give Cinders a go.

    Cinders is a magnificent example of how to update an old story for a modern age, and visual novel fans should pick it up immediately.

    Cinders breathes new life into a tired fairytale in a way that is smart, dark and funny.

    Cinders is a visual novel based on the classic Cinderella story while reflecting a more modern take on the original and as a game that offers four different endings, it works: its concise, appealing writing, quality illustrations and compelling finals make this a motivating experience for fans of visual novels. Pity for its rather short length, which means that players have even more reasons to reach all possible endings.

    Though Cinders would like to be a mature version of the Cinderella fairy tale, it fails to separate itself from the original and ends up rehashing a story we've all heard before.

    If you want something short with a little kick of humour, then Cinders is probably right up your alley. It’s nice, but not much more than that.
