Secret Agent Cinder - a short Twine game of espionage and ball gowns in Versailles

In Emily Ryan's illustrated interactive re-telling of Cinderella, you play as Secret Agent Cinder, who's been charged with a mission to obtain secret military plans while dodging palace guards and potential suitors. Don't bring any weapons or draw any attention to yourself, maintain your revolutionary zeal, and remember: you have to get out with the papers before midnight.

Emily Short takes a quick look at the game.

It seems a kitty buggy on my ancient iPad, can't wait to try it on a real system. It's a really cute implementing of the tech.

Charming! What a find. Good balance of options and intuition. I loved that I could complete the mission but not complete it very well. First IF I've seen in a long time that I wanted to play again right away. Thanks for sharing.

What a fantastic little game! The twist is inspired, merging the French Rev and the story of Cinderella in such a fresh and original way. I loved the artwork, Cinder's unchanging expression, and the dorky-but-cute Dauphin (who shows up, shoujo comic style, with roses and sparkles) and who also makes (SPOILERS) a potential love interest. It's short, and not to hard to figure out, but I replayed it a bunch of times just to see all the potential outcomes. I really hope the author does more-- it's fantastic work.

Dammit, I can't figure out how to keep my shoes on.

My shoe!

Really loved this, the art is fun and the puzzle is tricky, going to have to try it a few more times.

But hey I got a gold star for Revolutionary Zeal, that's got to count for something!
