A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Made for the My First Game Jam, ending on July 22nd, this is the first VN I've ever published. It's a short retelling of the traditional story of Cinderella, with hand-drawn character sprites and the dreamy appearance of a storybook.

Further updates to the game may come in the future, as the artist and I make further refinements to our work.

This is listed under Android games, but I could not find any way to run this on my tablet.  Any advice?  I tried Inno setup extractor, but it couldn't even find my download folder.

A very refreshing take on the famous old story! I like this version MUCH better :)

i absolutely love this retelling of cinderella! the storybook aesthetic is also really successful; the character sprites are very reminiscent of classic etchings, and they're complemented by the black and white backgrounds. nicely done, and good luck with any future updates!

This was super nice! I love the little twist to the story, and the writing wasn't bad at all. I had some Incompetech music playing in the background to fill the scene better. Congrats on submitting for your first game jam! I had fun. :D
