Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator from PQube and Studio Namaapa has you raising an adoptive daughter in the far future. Learn more in our Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator review!
It’s the year 3716, and humanity is under the constant threat of an alien lifeform known as the GIGANT. The planet’s surface is a dangerous place, left in ruins by GIGANT, which is why the remaining humans have built sky platform armadas, known as ARK. Seven ARK were created in total, and your role will be to raise Ciel, who has found herself in the sky city of ARK-3. A group found her on the surface, with no recollection of who she is or what her past is. You will nurture Ciel and help her grow into a young adult over a ten-year in-game period.
You will be selecting your background story as well, which will provide you with different pros and cons for your journey – that is, right after you select your name as your first action in the game! You will also select your skill focus on Strength, Intelligence, Charm, Imagination, and Spiritual. Strength will boost activities that require physical prowess. Intelligence is ideal for dealing with the more scientific and logical activities. Charm is good for interpersonal interactions, improving charismatic skills. Imagination revolves around creativity and the arts. As for Spiritual, it’s a skill focus that is tied to the realm of the unknown. Choose wisely, as your focus will have an impact on how you play the game!
The final decision before jumping into the whole daughter raising simulator thing will be to pick your previous occupation. You could, for example, be a soldier who once served in the ARK-3 airborne infantry, with a specialty in surgical strikes on the surface, which will boost max stamina while lowering charisma gain. Another option could be that you were a laborer, working hard every day on many construction projects, which allowed you to increase your overall physical strength while seeing a lower boost to intelligence gains.
The game is called Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator, and it certainly fits the bill! You’re going to have to decide how to schedule each day for Ciel, planning for classes and other activities, so that she can continue to grow and develop as the years go by. Every activity will require her to work hard, so you’ll need to pay attention to her overall mood at all times, or else she might end up leaving an activity unfinished if she’s tired or bored. You’ll also have to decide how to show her the consequences of her actions, be they by way of rewards or punishment.
Along with the time management side of things, Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator also features a fun way of taking on tasks and activities: with a match-three puzzle card game! The match-three puzzle game will be used for tasks such as completing a test at school, taking on a race, as well as for some RPG lite turn-based battles when Ciel and her friends are out exploring. It’s a nice change of pace from the planning and simulation side of things, helping to complement the overall package.
There’s a lot to do and see in Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator because every action you take will help Ciel to grow physically and mentally. The Ciel you are taking care of in your second year with her can be completely different from the Ciel that another player is raising, with variances in their height, weight, and a variety of traits that are unlocked with every activity and hobby she takes on. She’ll grow older with every passing year, which will have an effect on the clothes she wears, and what ending you’re going to get. A short adventure this is not, since you could be spending well over 30 hours playing this one!
And bumping the overall time you’ll spend playing Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator is the set of in-game achievements you can unlock as you progress through the game. The objectives you have to complete to unlock all 43 achievements include things such as collecting all vegetables found on the planet’s surface, finishing each of the game’s chapters, defeating 100 enemies in the surface, raising a single stat to 999, or collecting and adding 150 cheesecakes to your inventory. You know, the usual.
Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator is a fun game on Nintendo Switch, with a ton of content and plenty of activities that will aid you in raising Ciel into adulthood. You’ll need to keep a close eye on Ciel as she goes about her day to day life under your care, or else she might end up collapsing from being too tired, ending up sick in the process, which is very bad. Are you up for the challenge? Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator is out now on Nintendo Switch for $19.99.
