Update 1.2 Coming



Hey,

I'm currently working on a mobile version of Cinders and having to go through the game's code is a great opportunity to update the PC version as well.

I've collected a list of outstanding issues, but if I missed anything, please let me know in the comments here or in the dedicated community thread. :)

KNOWN ISSUES TO FIX:
- Some leftover typos.
- Odd crashes or black screens on Win10 machines.
- Steam Overlay doesn't work properly.
- Achievements sometimes don't unlock on High Sierra.
- An option to disable some of the flashier effects.
- Skipping seen scenes should only stop on choices, like in Solstice.

As I'm porting the game to the newer version of the engine, it'll also run much faster. I don't suspect the game slows down for most of you, but hey -- maybe someone is playing it on a REALLY old machine.

Reviews

“MoaCube focuses on the women of the tale and what made them who they are. The game is about nuance, is about understanding the motivations of another human being.”
Kotaku

“Asides from being delightfully well-written, highly replayable and filled with complex, convoluted characters, Cinders is also beautiful.”
IndieGames

“A visual novel that presents the deepest, most complex, most original, and ultimately most compelling re-imagination of the Cinderella universe.”
91/100 – RPGFan

About This Game

Cinders is a mature take on a classic fairytale with a heavy emphasis on player choices and role playing.

Cinders is a witty young woman living with an overbearing stepmother and her two daughters, as if she was reenacting a certain well-known fairytale. But unlike its protagonist, Cinders is not afraid of taking fate into her own hands. Even if it means breaking the rules…

The game takes a look at four women and what made them who they are. It’s a story about balancing freedom and dreams with circumstance and harsh reality. About growing up and finding out the true meaning of independence. Distancing itself from the judgmental simplicity of the original, Cinders tries to explore the more complex nature of oppression, responsibility and innocence.

With 120 decision points, over 300 options to choose from, and multiple endings, Cinders gives you total control over the main character’s personality and how her story unfolds.
