Crunching Koalas is gearing up for its next release on Nintendo Switch with Cinders, a mature take on the classic fairytale, Cinderella.
The game takes the form of a visual novel where everything centres around player choices. There are multiple endings to discover, a grand total of 120 decision points, and more than 300 available choices, meaning that players can shape the well-known fable in almost any way they want to - even if that means killing the stepmother.
Here's a little more info from the game's blurb:
Cinders is a witty young woman living with an overbearing stepmother and her two daughters, as if she was reenacting a certain well-known fairy tale. But unlike its protagonist, Cinders is not afraid of taking fate into her own hands. Even if it means breaking the rules...
The game takes a look at four women and what made them who they are. It’s a story about freedom, dreams, sisterhood, and finding your own Happily Ever After that may not exactly agree with the stale morals of classic fairytales.
Cinders is set to launch on Switch this Valentine's Day, 14th February; it released on Steam back in 2012 to "very positive" user reviews.
