Apologies, we’re a week late on this one. Last week, Moa Cube’s Cinders was released and is ready to be trialed or purchased on Moa Cubes website. Cinders tells the story of Cinderella through an interactive novel interface. With astonishing graphics and by all accounts an incredibly well written interpretation of the Cinderella mythos, Cinders is certainly worth checking out.
It’s a story of four women and what made them who they are, inspired by the classic fairytale of Cinderella. 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.
The game focuses on characters and their motivations, and is heavy on player choices and role-playing. With 120 decision points and over 300 options to choose from, Cinders allows you to shape the main character’s personality and the course of the story.
Why it’s cool:
- A serious take on a classic fairytale story.
- Beautiful art by illustrator Gracjana Zielinska.
- Tons of choices and several different endings.
- Moody soundtrack by Rob Westwood.
