Cinders is a short but highly replayable visual novel with dynamic characters and sharp writing. The visuals and soundtrack aren’t revolutionary but serve the narrative well. However, slowdown, while infrequent, can be a game-breaking experience when it appears.

Cinders breathes new life into a tired fairytale in a way that is smart, dark and funny.

GOOD - Cinders is an interactive novel that retells the classic Cinderella story from a more mature perspective of each of the four women involved. Seemingly countless decisions, a variety of endings and a well-written story make up a solid foundation. Couple that with beautifully made 2D art scenes and well-planned mechanics in the game and Cinders comes out as strong game in this genre.

As a Choose Your Own Adventure style narrative, Cinders is a wonderful experience but it doesn't quite feel like a full video game.

Though Cinders would like to be a mature version of the Cinderella fairy tale, it fails to separate itself from the original and ends up rehashing a story we've all heard before.
