「 5 minutes till the clock strikes twelve.
Now, Cinderella. It’s time you woke up from your curse —— 」
Cendrillon palikA (サンドリヨンパリカ), announced at Otomate Party 2017, is a Nintendo Switch game slated for a 2018 release.
|ARTIST Suzushiro Karin (Norn9 FDs)
DIRECTOR Koijuuri (?)
WRITER Sasaki Maro (sub-writer for Trigger Kiss, Yuukyuu no Tierblade, Yunohana SpRING!)
The beautiful town of glass, « Toukyou » (透京·lit. the transparent city).
—— However, this town is cursed.
While the curse means no one can leave Toukyou for good, the townspeople are able to exit the town for a short amount of time — as long as they keep something made from glass on them. However, if they do not return before the clock strikes midnight, they will suffer a painful, despairing death as their bodies slowly turn to glass…
One day, a girl who had been living a peaceful everyday life in Toukyou meets a certain magician. The magician informs her about a special pair of glass slippers, and of a way to break the curse.
Make the « The Astrolabe of Judgement » move once more.
Somewhere else, 6 young men each receive a message — and along with it, a single glass slipper.
Is this all part of somebody’s plan, or is God merely playing a prank on them…?
However, the girl is yet to find out…
About the truth that has been hidden to them all, and about the secret which lies in the glass slippers.
And so, as tears collide with the wheel of fate,
the curtains to a beautiful, yet sorrowful story begin to rise ——
The capital city of Japan. (oh ok so “japan” is still a thing, they just changed the kanji for tokyo LMAO)
A beautiful town once admired by people far and wide, its buildings and structures are all made from glass. However, at one point in time, a curse was placed on it, causing it to become a sorrowful paradise. The town itself is shaped in a circle, and is enclosed by a thin layer of glass.
Due to the curse, certain restrictions were created.
1) One must wear an item made from glass when leaving Toukyou.
2) If one does not return before midnight, they will turn to glass, leading to death.
3) One may leave Toukyou during the sunrise of each day.
The Astrolabe of Judgement (審判のアストロラーベ)
A clock at the top of the clocktower which was built in the very center of Toukyou. The town’s most well-known landmark, it is off-limits to regular townspeople. The clocktower is generally guarded by a watchman, while the tower itself is managed by the ruler of Toukyou, « M ».
The ruler of Toukyou who is in charge of managing the Astrolabe, as well as the town itself. The role is always passed down to a different woman. However, there are few who know her personally.
