"Okay I know the art style isn't anime but this visual novel is GORGEOUS. It has dating sim elements and follows the story of Cinderella...or does it?"

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

Über dieses Spiel

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.

Ich finde Cinders ein wirklich sehr schönes Spiel wenn man die Geschichte von Aschenputtel kennt. Und für Visual Novels Fan´s ist das wirklich ein sogenanntes "Schankerl". Da die Szenen wirklich gut gemacht sind.

Es lässt einen in die Welt von Aschenputtel ganz gut eintauchen und man kann Ihren Lebensweg nachvollziehen im Laufe der Geschichte.

Ich habe bei der Geschichte richtig mitgefiebert und mir meine Entscheidungen beim ersten duuchspielen wirklich 5-6 mal gründlich überlegt ob ich wirklich diese Antwort nehmen soll oder die andere. Da ich mir immer mehr Gedanken gemacht habe wie diese Antwort sich jetzt auswirken könnte. (( Was aber im Endeffekt eigentlich nicht schlimm ist da man ja das Game mehrfach durchspielen kann und dann eben die anderen Entscheidungsmöglichkeiten wählt. ))

Es macht wirklich Spass dieses Spiel zu spielen ohne großen Hype jetzt dafür auszusprechen.

Man muss schon gut Englisch können um den ganzen breiten Sinn der Sätze oder der Story zuerfassen aber wenn man mal ein Wört nicht weiss kann man ja bei einem oder anderen Übersetzer im Internet das Wort nachschlagen um so den ganzen Satz zu verstehen wie er gemeint ist.

Abseits erfährt man noch sher gute Details über die einzelnen Personen, sodass man einige Entscheidungen sehr gut treffen kann wie ich finde weil man ein gutes Bild gemalt bekommt welchen Charakter welche Figur hat.

Alles in allem ein rundes Spiel wie ich finde. Ich werde es bestimmt noch das eine oder andere mal wiederspielen auch wenn man schon alles frei geschaltet hat an Errungenschaften.

Mir hat das Spiel sehr viel Spass gemacht.

Cinders is a pretty fantastic visual novel, full of strong female characters and decisions that have consequences. It's a darker, more mature take on the classic Cinderella fairy tale, but with some clever twists. The artwork and music are really gorgeous and add a lot to the story. It's also worth noting that this is one of the rare visual novels that uses an art style other than anime.

The game's a bit short and even going back and playing several endings won't take much longer than a few hours. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of replay value. While there are a lot of different endings in the game, things become a little tedious after you've played through a couple of times. Other than achievement hunting, there's not much payoff for getting all the endings.

Even though it's brief, the story and characters are engaging and it's an enjoyable experience while it lasts. It's also a visual novel that's a bit heavier on the novel part than straight-up dating sims; several different pairings can occur, but the focus isn't entirely on romance.

I personally think that the $20 price tag is a little steep for such a short game though, so look for sales or bundle deals.

Cinders is a colorful, emotionally-vibrant Visual Novel, starring Cinders, a wide-eyed, fiery-red, female protagonist. Cinders is about to embark on a journey—a journey of choices. The story will most certainly bring to memory another classical tale of romance, intrigue, betrayal & the pursuit of happiness.

Choices are the core gameplay element in Cinders. The choices you make really do matter. The world will unfold around you according to the decisions you make—and you will always be aware of how they affect what occurs next. The gameplay mechanic for this is that a budding branch will emerge from the corner of the screen to denote an event playing out that has been mitigated by previous decisions. This conspires to make a living world, where you’re not an observer but a participant.

While choices are at the core of Cinders, they dance around the diverse characters. The characters are complex, disturbed, scarred, & much more. None of the characters are simply good or bad. They reach out and play with your emotions as if they were flesh & blood.

The artwork in Cinders is colorful & vibrant. You’ll oftentimes find yourself looking at the background scenery, to catch a look at the swaying shrubbery, or the flickering fire. The soundtrack is diverse & emotionally fitting to each scene as it unfolds. It’s easy to get lost in the simple background melodies.

Cinders has a full screen option, with the option to choose screen ratio. The game looked great on a 30” screen at a 16:10 ratio playing in full screen mode.

In conclusion, Cinders is loosely based on one of the classics, & most certainly worth a look if you’re interested in the Visual Novel genre. It will make your heart tingle & your nerves race as you take an emotional journey with Cinders.

Cinders: "It's funny how when we grow up, we start rejecting things we consider childish, only to return to them with great joy" ♥

I'm not much for Visual Novels, or multiple choice. Never really found them very fun to play.
But for some reason, I actually quite like Cinders.

Not even sure what it is that makes me like this game.

But it is indeed a very nice VN. I can certainly recommend this game.
