* FracturedFairyTale: The story gives Cinderella a secret that causes the Prince to have her executed in one ending, and even the happy ending is quite atypical in its treatment of the Prince and Cinderella's relationship. Additionally, all plot happens in one room, and you play pet parrot that is [[FunnyAnimal trying to]] [[ShipperOnDeck match up]] classic pair. [[spoiler: Cinderella is actually natural enchantress, but lives in kingdom where most people are [[TheFundamentalist overly]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist religious]], believing magical powers to be [[DealWithTheDevil result of compact with demons]] despite this being untrue. Prince couldn't recognise her because of enchantment which is restored when she puts on slipper. Her family regards her with mixture of fear, repulsion and pity, hiding her because they're both ashamed and wish to protect her-stepmother is even implied to experience [[CrisisOfFaith crisis of faith]]. Depending on your decision, stepmother either switches slippers and Prince marry stepsister, realizes ruse and leaves, executes Cinderella or destroys slipper and evidence of her magic, eventually finding reason to court her and marry.]]
