A downloadable game for Windows

Cinder City is a hand-drawn point-and-click adventure about a society forced to live in an underground city for safety and necessity, and a little kid whose curiosity will make him discover long-held secrets.


It’s been over two hundred years since Phoenix Corp. built Cinder City, an underground metropolis where humankind now lives. Phoenix Corp. controls everything in the city, being the major supplier of SHINE, the most important resource to keep it all running- the city as much as the lives that inhabit it. 

Everything is made out to be perfect by the corporation, but the truth above everyone’s heads is anything but. No one knows anything about the surface nowadays and, save from the tales your grandfather used to put you to sleep with, you are no exception. 

Stories about stars, sunlight and oceans, animals you are not sure if he made up or not. All you know is that, for as long as you can remember, your dream was to see it all, and there was only one place where you could start to seek answers: Phoenix Corp.'s headquarters.
