Publisher PQube and Indonesian developer Studio Namaapa have announced Ciel Fledge, a “wholesome simulator about raising a daughter in a future world” due out for Switch and PC via Steam this fall.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
In a distant future, humanity has abandoned earth… facing near-extinction by a colossal alien threat.
Amidst the destruction, a mysterious young girl is rescued and brought to safety on ARK-3 … a magnificent city built in the sky.
Ciel Fledge is a game about raising an adopted daughter in a future world that still has hope. Featuring compelling management gameplay and a lovable cast of characters, it’s up to you to take care of Ciel until she reaches adulthood and becomes ready to fledge the nest.
- Schedule – How will you raise Ciel? Using a helpful schedule with touch-screen controls on Nintendo Switch, plot each day of the week and see what happens as the days unfold. Choose classes and hobbies, and encourage Ciel to make friends. Or take a part-time job to earn more money, and enjoy nicer meals for dinner.
- Supervise – Monitor daily activities, and watch how Ciel behaves. Keep an eye on mood, as Ciel might abandon activities if she becomes too tired. Boost stamina with items, spoil Ciel with a generous allowance, or scold her when she skips school. It’s your responsibility to choose how to deal with her.
- Battle – The trials of daily life take the form of challenging puzzle battles: complete an activity, or pass a class test, by winning at strategic match-three card games. Learn techniques and build friendships to gain extra support in battle.
- Grow – Every choice affects how Ciel grows. Track progress each week and see how her stats and relationships have changed – with hundreds of unlockable character traits that can affect Ciel’s interactions and abilities in battle.
- Customize – Each Ciel is unique to the player. With a range of outfits, equipment, and multiple endings to the game, it’s up to you to shape what kind of person she becomes. Her age, height, and even weight will change as the years pass by.
- Explore – Send Ciel on expeditions to the surface of Earth to explore and discover new areas of the old world. Scavenge useful items, and work with friends to fight enemies for a huge stat increase.
- Unwind – Lose yourself in the wholesome sights and sounds of the city, and ease into the daily routine of ARK-3. Featuring an enchanting art-style, and a smooth instrumental soundtrack inspired by Japanese City Pop.
