Guys! BIG. THING. Possibly the biggest in MoaCube’s brief history.

We're on Steam!

If you already own the game and would like to redeem your key, please email me with your purchase data. Here's more info.

Any help with spreading the word is much appreciated. Let’s show Valve that narrative games for a slightly different audience can still do well on Steam! :)

I've finished the game recently :) At first, I wasn't used to the art (I tend to go for more anime-esque ones). Once I got used to it, I couldn't go back!

Backgrounds were illustrated beautifully. Music, enchanting. Dialogues, witty and interesting. But most of all, I felt like I was in control while playing because there were so many choices!
If there was one thing I wished could change, it would be the ending bit.
I wished there were more scenes rather than just narration ^^
Thanks MoaCube for bringing out such a great product!

One of my all time favourite VNs, ever. The art style is absolutely breathtaking - I love how characters are actually realistically proportioned, unlike the common anime style art in VNs.
I loved the story overall, but IMHO the only romance I really liked was Tobias. The Prince simply didn't get enough screen time for me to really care about him - it would have been a lot better if there was some way the heroine could meet him at least once before the ball, perhaps unknowingly, like when he and Perrault go hunting. Perrault had a lot of potential, but... idk. His personality failed to charm me. There's a CG of him kissing the heroine in the game files, but I've played through the game a hundred times and have never, ever been able to get a kiss out of him. Their relationship never even gets to romance at all during the game, there's only hints of it in some of the epilogues. Kind of disappointing.

Thanks! <3
The Prince thing is intentional to make a jab at the fairytale. They barely know each other, and any decision regarding their marriage is either silly or dictated by Cinders' ambition (which may end well, but still...)

It's been a long time, so I don't remember all conditions for Perrault's romance, but it's there. He's an experienced man, and much older than Cinders, so it takes some full on seduction to make him fall for her in a span of a week.

Yesterday, I noticed Cinders while browsing the Nintendo eShop. It looks like the VN's about to be released in digital-only form for Switch. I wanted to comment on this in a recent r/visualnovels thread, but Reddit wouldn't let me log in at the time...
I've already purchased a few VNs / narrative games / story-driven adventure games on Switch. I've started Oxenfree, Gaokao 100 Days, and a couple of otome games. Still planning to read Planetarian and Night in the Woods. So much of my time on the system has been dedicated to Lumines and Puyo Puyo Tetris...

Oh wow, I haven't been here in forever! :oops:

Yeah, Cinders is coming to Switch on Valentine's Day. It's one of the first OELVNs on the eShop, actually, so that's cool.

I gotta say having your own game on a console by a company that shaped your childhood feels absolutely amazing! <3

You are a trailblazer for the EVN community! Keep it up! What's your next project?

How were you able to get on Switch, btw (if you don't mind me asking)? Did they contact you?

Did you use Ren'py to make Cinders?
