How do you fare at parenthood?
Have you ever wanted to raise a daughter of your very own? How about raising a daughter on a floating city where humanity survives after a devastating alien invasion? Oh, and she can grow up to be some kind of awesome space soldier, too. You'll get all of that in Ciel Fledge, a brand-new game coming to Steam and the Nintendo Switch this Fall according to a press release from publisher PQube games.
In Ciel Fledge, players take on the role of a parent — perhaps one of the most terrifying video game scenarios to date. After adopting a young girl named Ciel, you'll raise her from a young age into adulthood over the course of several in-game years. Plan her daily schedule, monitor her mood, and engage in challenging turn-based RPG battles against... math? Much like many recent games, Ciel Fledge represents various challenges through the medium of puzzles.
There's more to this game than simply playing a sort of 2D Sims, though! Ciel can acquire hundreds of different traits depending on how she's lived her life under your care. Combine these with a robust dress-up system and you'll have a situation where no two games will be the same.
Once she's a bit older, Ciel can drop down to the devastated Earth to explore the old world. Dig up useful things from the derelict cities and team up with your friends to fight the terrifying enemies on the planet below!
If this game sounds intriguing to you, you can watch the Ciel Fledge Announcement Trailer below to see some of the gameplay in action and get a general overview of the game. Ciel Fledge will launch on the PC, Linux, and Nintendo Switch sometime in the Fall of 2019. In the meantime, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam. You can also swing by the game's official website.
