Following its roots as a successful low-target Kickstarter campaign back in April 2018, developer Studio Namaapa and publisher PQube have successfully released Ciel Fledge – A Daughter Raising Simulator onto the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC platforms. Child raising simulators aren’t a big component of the sim-game genre, with this niche mostly dominated by Gainax’s Princess Maker franchise. But unlike the PM series which typically takes place in fantasy settings, Ciel Fledge finds you raising a daughter in a floating city in the sky.
You are chosen by ARK Administration to name, adopt and raise her as your daughter until she reaches adulthood. This includes helping her through school and choosing hobbies, finding a part-time job, or just spending time together. The decisions you make will have an impact on her life, contributing to different personal strengths/weaknesses and plot elements being unlocked or locked.
Taking Ciel under your wing, you guide her through a strategic management system where you form a daily routine around classes, hobbies and hanging out with friends. The challenges which face her can be overcome by a match-three puzzle battle system, a preview of which you can find above and below.
