This thesis reexamines the purpose of fairy tales throughout history and explores the effectiveness of a modern alternative to classical methods of telling these stories. To increase interactivity as well as the agency of the female protagonist and players themselves, this thesis reimagines the popular classic, Cinderella, as a visual novel.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
