Novel Visuals: Cinders Is A "Complex" Fairy Tale


Arty indie types MoaCube - whose lovely Co-Op is worth a look - have just released the beautiful and ominous-sounding visual novel Cinders, which is a lavishly illustrated retelling of the Cinderella story. They reckon it's a "serious" approach to the famous story, which ditches the original protagonist in favour of a "story about balancing freedom and dreams with circumstance and harsh reality; about growing up and finding out the true meaning of independence." Yes, you know the sort of thing, I suspect.

It's got a demo, so you can play a sample of the thing. And a trailer, which you can look at below.

Thanks to Cliff for the tip.
