There's no adequate measure that can determine how much i'm grateful to you for this amazing game.
(pardon my English)
I'm usually very cranky about judging such kind of games, but Cinderella was the first to actually fulfill everything I usually expect from a game and it didn't disappoint me anyhow even after I finished it!
Graphics (sprites, CGs) is not superior, but it's unique (for me) and very plausible to the eye. Backgrounds sets the mood, music suits perfectly to every situation it follows. And the main part: THE PLOT.
OH, HOW MUCH I WAS WAITING TO AN ACTUAL DECENT PLOT AND CHARACTERS, OH, MAYBE FOR CENTURIES. And that's why I'm grateful to you.
It's been a long time since I was enough emotionally engaged in current story to actually feel sympathy and worry for their destinies.
Main heroine isn't stupid and has a solid personality, believable one, what I've never seen in games of the same kind. She even changes drastically as the story progresses, which is unique nowadays.
Boyz also aren't pretty dolls, I can believe in their reasons to do or say certain things. Dialogs and plot are solid and never disturbing.
I can talk a lot about these masterpiece, yeah. I may be blind to some obvious flaws of the game, but the problem is I DON'T CARE. I DON'T WANT TO SEARCH FOR THE FLAWS BECAUSE I'M ENGAGED TO THE STORY. I usually try to find every possible inconsistency because I don't care for characters, i don't believe them, i'm irritated by their words, actions, presence. But money has been paid and I don't gain my entertainment from the game itself. That's where I need to start entertaining part myself. AND THERE'S NOTHING MORE SATISFYING AS LAUGHING AT THOSE LITTLE DOLLS, THERE DEAR PATHETIC PROBLEMS, VALUES, EVERY RIDICULOUS EXCUSE AND EVENT WHICH IS PUT TO MOVE THE PLOT, I SWEAR.
But that's not what I paid for. It frustrates me more than makes happy. And for Cinderella, until I passed the whole game, I didn't pay a penny. And I gained more than I ever expected from the otome and the free-to-play game combined. Again, I may be blind to some unforgivable mistakes, but I gained everything I ever wanted from this. Entertainment. Fun. Emotions. Engagement.
From the bottom of my heart, I wish you, Dicesuki, not giving up on developing such content, succeeding your goals and be paid for your undoubtfully hard work. I'll support you in every possible way i can find. Thank you for the story I can enjoy and love.
(Also I enjoyed Rod's route the most :)
My luv to little boyz, especially with solid personality, is botomless)
