Possibly silly question, but since the game is also on Steam, would it be possible to provide a Steam key with the purchase?

Hi, just bought this game on steam and I'm loving the game so far but I'm having a bit of a problem with the resolution. The character's outlines and details are blurry, both in windowed and full screen mode. Is there anyway I can adjust the resolution?
i cant even get this game because it isn't compatible for my laptop
SHut. UP. Cinderella Phenomenon was the very first VN I played. It's what got me into it. And now there is this. God freakin bless lol
Not sure if this is where we should post about bugs, but I've noticed a few times that Lucette's sprite will pop up for a split second in between dialogue boxes when someone else is talking, when it's clearly not supposed to. This happened at various points in Rod's route, and I'm now playing Karma's route and I've noticed the same thing as well (ie: when Lucette is talking with Emmaline about what to name the special b-day cocktail)
Has anyone else noticed the same thing?
Yepp, I've also noticed the same thing
Yeah, it sounds like this "Lucette Bug" may have been fixed in the 1.1 version of the game, but although that may be the one on Steam and they said it should be available on itch.io...I can only see version 1.0.2 on itch, which still has the bug 😅. I don't think they've properly changed the download link for the newest version on itch.io--either that, or the Lucette Bug is not, in fact, fixed yet 🙃
Thank you for your hard work. I just have finished playing Rod's route, and i'm so happy. He is my favourite, so i just cried a lot when some events occured. Still i need to do the other's route, but i just wanted to comment this, and once again; thank you for your hard work.
So I finished all routes and I love this game as much as CP! Well worth the prize, especially considering the original is free AND amazing.
I used the opportunity to also replay each prequel route before its happily ever after~ Embarrassing for me to say, I did all this in like 3 days. But that's how good and addictive these games are! The art is really pretty but what captivated me originally and still captivates me most is the writing and the depth of characters, all of them having flashed out personalities and backstories, including the bad guys, even if not all was shown in CP. I really enjoyed the additional family stories in several routes in Evermore! And you made me cry a couple of times when old deaths were mentioned ;; Also loved how there was always additional conflict, someimtes more, sometimes less, besides the romance development, but we also got updates on how the side characters and other love interests were doing!
Play order recommendation:
I played Klaude's route first, and after that, all the Brugantia references became funny, so I recommend you do that!
Also, while there's no "true route" this time, I still recommend leaving Waltz for last, especially his good/normal end, it gives such a nice wrap-up of the game! (For this reason, I might have enjoyed the good ending more than the best ending in his case!)
Slightly spoilered fangirling time!
Personally, I feel like the person who most needed a sequel was Fritz, because I didn't see the depth of his character in CP, with his "good" and "bad" sides separated. Seeing him as one complex person made me like him a lot more. I loved seeing his cheeky and seductive side as part of him now. His route was among my faves! I've now also seeing a parallel between Waltz's and Fritz's stories, the guilt they deal with, and their relationship to Lucette. I feel so bad for Fritz, since his route in CP goes so much worse ;;
Also, Rod! Such a mature young man! I also loved seeing him older, he's become really attractive! I was curious how the obstacle of being step-siblings would be cleared, and I was so proud of how he resolved and handled things! I really enjoyed his route, and came to love his character more than before. But I laughed how he went from commoner to prince to commoner again then crown prince. :D
Played through Chev, Rod and Karma so far and I can't stop smiling!!!! What an amazing after-story for Cinderella Phenomenon - worth every cent!!! Every part of this is made with so much love and care, and WOAH the redrawn sprites... Who made Rumpel hot!!! (Thank you Dicesuki.) I loved seeing how much the characters have grown, how they deal with more mundane issues (if running a kingdom can be considered 'mundane'), and the characters interacting. And the fluff. Oh my god, everyone is so cute.
Evermore is the closure that I didn't think I needed, but it turns out, I do. I haven't even gone through Fritz and Waltz's routes yet!!!
Looking forward to whatever else Dicesuki decides to do in the future!
Just wanted to say thank you for such a beautiful story and experience. I just finished the game and i gotta say, i couldn't be happier. It was worth the wait; thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for creating such a beautiful novel for us to enjoy <3.
I really hope i get to play another visual novel from Dicesuki in the future. You guys are amazing.
My friend and I just finished playing the Waltz route and we were disappointed. This feels like a continuation of the good end of the route rather than its own story/a sequel, and as a result it was pretty boring because nothing really happened. Because of this + the shorter runtime, the game was not worth $10 IMO.
* A fandisk is akin to an extended epilogue.
Really? I mean, i even think the game is way cheaper than it should be. Have you played visual novels from bigger companies? Like Otomate? Each one of their games costs, at least $25. Besides all, what jennyxxfasho said it's true. Evermore was never meant to be a complete sequel, it was just a Fan Disk, which meant, a little extension on the epilogue from the first game.
I just finished the complete game and i gotta say i'm more than happy with the development each of the routes got. I really hope you can see everything from another perspective, and enjoy and appreciate the work that Dicesuki has put on this visual novel.
Good explanation, ickyvickytorial. Others finding the game who are not familiar with the genre or with fan disks in particular would benefit from understanding this. The review above would also be helpful for them to know what to expect from this individual fan disk. (It is not inherent to "extended epilogue" that a game be uninteresting, so there is still value in sharing this experience.)
That said, it takes an undue amount of bad faith to assume the reviewer would play through the entirety of the first Cinderella Phenomenon and buy the second game if they did not appreciate or weren't impressed with Dicesuki initially. People have high expectations if they were previously impressed. With that in mind, it is just another review (as for the interpersonal approach to the game devs that many of us seem to have- I find it very kind, but there is no moral imperative to adopt that in favor of a vender-consumer mindset. As such, we do not need to judge people for using the latter. I noticed a similar response to Anime_4_life's super innocuous and supportive comment below. I did not expect that the other fans would be so defensive, and toward someone clearly enamored with the game). I am glad that you and others found value in the game and found meaning in the experience.
You're right that it was much shorter and didn't have much of an arc - I would've loved to see more happen in the routes with some of the subplots introduced in the previous game, like Lucette's relationship with her father, or more of a focus on the Tenebrarum and magic (I haven't played all the routes though, so maybe other routes have more). But, Evermore does specifically say it's not a full sequel - it's marketed as a fandisk, so there's no point in expecting it to be something it's not. Since it's still in development, maybe the devs might add more, which would be awesome, but they also might not.
Also...we got Cinderella Phenomenon for FREE. I would gladly have paid $20 for it, so the $10 I paid for Evermore feels like I'm paying the devs back for the amazing job they did on CP.
It is indeed a good opportunity to pay the devs our thanks for even the original CP and a good way to support them outside of patreon.
I found it boring too. I know all about fandisks and all that, but I found myself not caring about which ending I got or what happened in them. I’ve been playing I otome games for over a decade and I’ve purchased extended epilogues and have read translations of materials that extend the epilogue, so I do know what I’m talking about. I’ve read much more interesting after stories before. Even in the middle of the route I signed and said “this is so boring” . I only managed to get through two routes. It didn’t meet the high standard that I had in the original game, so I was very disappointed. I won’t say it’s a bad game, but I didn’t think it was worth the money I paid for it. Disappointed.
That sounds quite reasonable. I thought that the same amount of writing (and art) could be reworked to be much more interesting. I found it a bit boring seeing everyone fawn over each other for 6 chapters when the original game had so much more character. I'm not really a fan of the genre but that game proved itself to be more than what it seemed at first glance. It's good to hear that other fan disks have done more to expand the material in these games!
I would like to know how I can pay if my card has a different currency, can you tell me ?
I just finished playing Waltz's route and I would just like to inform that there is a spelling mistake at the last choice in the story! Just letting you know since it might've just slipped past without noticing :)
Been playing and loving it! Weird question, but could you change the "normal and best endings for each route" to "good and best ends for each route" in the description above?
I know I'm a special breed of dumb, but I got what is labelled in game as good endings first for Klaude and Rod and thought the other ending was the normal ending. I tried so hard to get no affection points but never got a worst ending. So I decided to move onto Chevalier and was super surprised when credits started rolling. Checked the achievement screen and...yeah. The endings are good and best not normal and best. I mean, admittedly I'm stupid...just wanna help others like me. If there are any. LOL.
I originally played Cinderella Phenomenon back in 2017, and I have since gone back to it multiple times over the years as it as by far the best otome games I've ever played. You can imagine my happiness to see this released! I have only played three of the five routes so far, but returning to the world of CP has brought me so much joy after following the progression of Evermore over the years. Thank you, Dicesuki!
LOVED IT! I've been anxiously waiting for the game since it was announced, and though I've only played Rod's route so far it was great. Some slight glitches and a somewhat abrupt ending, but overall awesome. :)
I fell in love with Cinderella Phenomenon at the start of the quarantine and it has brought me so much joy. To finally have the sequel right before Christmas is a blessing. Thank you so much for your hard work! I've finished Klaude's route and Fritz's-- It's been great so far! There are a few bugs (Lucette popping in and out is one) but nothing too distracting from the lovely story. Thank you once again, dicesuki! I'm looking forward to more of your works in the future!
To my knowledge I have gotten every CG and every ending, yet for some reason the last two achievements (The top and bottom ones on the right side) Won't unlock. Is there something I'm missing?
Hello! The first achievement is for getting a best end without using the RCI while the 2nd achievement is for reading all of the dialogue and the script variations based on your choices. We'll be sure to include descriptions in our next patch!
There's a bug on Rod's route, I chose to ask Emelaigne for advise but during the scene in the Throne Room after talking to Sebby it said that I asked Ophelia, which was the right choice but still;;
Is it released yet?
Yes, it has been released on itch, but not yet on Steam.
If I buy the game here, do I need to buy it again in Steam when it will be released there?
I just found the first game earlier this week, and was hoping there would be a sequel. Needless to say I am very excited about this, and it's a wonderful birthday present to get more scenes w my lovely Klaude :3
This is such a good sequel and I've only played Rod's route, but I can honestly say that I'm so excited that this game is here! Props to the creators - you did such an amazing job <3
I want to thank you for your dedication and your work in this game. for sure it is very beautiful, I already bought it and I am very happy. S2
An update: i finally downloaded the game and run it and it's working fine.. I saw many comments saying they couldn't open the game but thankfully mine is fine. I have a Windows and my computer did give me a warning that it may be not safe but I clicked run anyway and everything is fine.
Well it worked! Even if it has bugs, idc. I'm so happy it worked on my old Mac os. Thank you for the game, and any future projects rather free or not will have my money.
my eyes are already blessed
Hi, some animations don't work for me. I don't see Lucette in the corner (she sometimes appears for 0,5 second and disappears again) and I don't see two crystals above water lilies for Rod and Klaude when I have to choose the path. Is it because I tried to play it on computer with Windows 7?
It's Windows 7. I installed the game on computer with Windows 10 and everything works now. It's a pity, I wanted to play it on my old laptop, it would be more convenient for me.
I can't open the file and I don't know why, it won't let me know what's wrong. I'm playing on macOS!
Edit: I tried a different program to unpack the zip file and I can open the game now, but it immediately crashes :(
I’d try using itch to run the game. I’m also on a Mac and found it works perfectly when using that!
i cant open the game i downloaded it unpacked the zip file and it says i dont have permission to open the game
Try opening the game by clicking right click then choose run as administrator
Let me know if it worked :(
Omg finally!!!! I just registered on this website, I thought it will be released on steam today also but I can't wait anymore so I'm just gonna buy it from here :) ugh but I'm at work right now so I have to wait for 6 hours until I get back home. Anyways thank you all for your hard work. <<<<<<3
Ps: I wish I can scream from happiness right now but can't do that at work T_T
I think their Tumblr said it'd hopefully be released on Steam in January. I couldn't wait either, so I bought it here, and I'll probably buy it again on Steam when it's released there.
Super excited to play this, a big fan of the first game! <3
I have experienced a bug? or something: So far it seems like the right choice indicator isn't working (during Rod's route at least).
Edit: it's appearing for some of the later choices, and for some it doesn't (even if I try every alternative).
I might have an answer for Rod's route - for the first choice, you only get the indicator in the second chapter when someone brings it up :) So they all seem to work so far, at least for me.
I don't want to split hairs, but it is difficult to download the app and my anti-virsus is very sceptical of the files. When I download it directly from the itch page it says that this title is hosted on an incompatible third party website. Also when I download it through zip files my anti-virus says that Cinderella is trying to gain/change my LOG.TXT file in my desktop. So, just letting you know. I am not computer tec savy and I am sure some of the others are not either which may frusterate some users trying to figure this out and, finally, play it after this huge long wait. T_T.
Wow I didn't know we had to pay to play the game, all my time waiting gone... But I guess it makes sense cause of the quality of the game is awesome. The story, the illustrations, the characters and so much more... And yes it is super affordable but I'm broke at the moment so I'll have to wait before I can finally download the game. ;-; But can't wait till I finally do!
i mean they have been working for years on this game.. It makes sense that we have to pay for it. Also 10$ is affordable
Also... this sequel was always planned as commercial, the cost is clear since the release of the first CP. And yes, it's still very affordable.
omg, really now? wtf is wrong with you?! Even the first one was waaayyy too good to be free, I ever wondered, why they don't sell it for money! This game is so good and they fully deserve it to sell their VN!
"You dont even deserve to play it with that attitude" bruh chill they only said they didnt know they had to pay. You do realize we're in a very taxing situation and for some people, every dollar counts. They simply didnt know in advance that they'd have to save money, and there's nothing wrong with that. Anyway, I hope enjoy the game.
And now I have it!!!! Been looking forward to this for years! ^^ Thank you developers for all your hard work!!!
So excited to play!!!! Pulling an all nighter! Thank you guys for all your hard work! This is what I've been looking forward to all year!!! much love!
Hell yea I stayed up till 3 am for this shit fuck yes
My father doesn't allow me to buy things online especially the games but when I grow up and gain my own money I wıll buy thıs game T^T I really loved the first game its the best VN that I played so far thank you so much for all your efforts!!!
Awww I was looking forward to the release of this game. It's just a pity that the Steam version will be later ... Now I'm having a problem whether to buy the game here or wait for the Steam versions.
I feel ya, I prefer Steam since it can more easily track my play-time and achievements. However, I've decided that I can't possibly wait any longer for Evermore, and I want to support these amazing dev's and I have the money to do so, so I'm going to buy the itch version ASAP, and then I'll buy the Steam version once it's available and I'll play that version going forward :)
I paid/donated $21USD for Cinderella Phenomenon after I played it for free on Steam since it was such a great game, and buying Evermore twice will cost around the same amount, so it makes logical sense in my mind (even though Evermore will be shorter).
Anyhoo, I wish thee luck in coming to your own decision! :)
I'd do the same, but I do not know if I itchi not grabs the additional fee for currency conversion money. (I generally don't buy on itchi) ;w;
Developers have said they get a slightly higher cut from itchio! But I don't know about the currency conversion..
I'm not sure about the conversion either (I'm Canadian) but imma pay it regardless 😅. Though you'd think that the conversion would be split the same way the original US amount is? But again, I don't actually know
