We previously covered Moacube‘s beautiful visual novel Cinders almost a year ago, which makes it a bit silly that we’ve missed its release by a few months.

Cinders is a somewhat loose re-telling of the classic fairy tale of Cinderella, with themes of free will added. The game’s story is heavily focused on the various characters, driven more by their individual conversations than the narrative surrounding the Prince’s ball. I wouldn’t call this a bad thing; it makes the narrative more personal, but it does lend it a certain flavor that I’m sure not everyone will find appealing.
