[Game review] Cendrillon Palika


A fairy tale that starts with “once upon a time”, as all fairy tales do. Haili Lalique has lived her entire life, or at least nineteen years of it, in a cursed city known as Tokyo that confines its residents unless they wear glass on their person when leaving and make sure to return before midnight, lest they turn into glass themselves and die.
