Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator
Top Critic Average
A gruelling and protracted stat-management simulation, with paltry interactions and stilted dialogue that's entirely removed from the actual process of parenting.
An unusual concept for a game with a mixed execution. The monotony of scheduling your daughter's life unfortunately overshadows the interesting story and fantastic art direction
Ciel Fledge is a conceptually great game that suffers from overwhelming tedium knocking down an enjoyable story.
Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator breaks new ground with its combination of game systems, but hiding critical information from the player is a real drag on a long game.
Ciel Fledge is bursting at the seams with ideas, many of them good, but with so little room for them to breathe, they end up stripped down to their most basic and least satisfying forms.
Are you good parent? Try to be perfect dad of 10-years old daughter. But it is not very funny.

Ciel Fledge could have been more robust... indeed, it really should have been. There's just not enough substance to go with the charming presentation and concept. However, it's still one of those things that's difficult to put down, not least because its gameplay loops and feedback are tight and engaging.
Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator has some great ideas. But the moment-to-moment gameplay is, for the most part, dull and not all that engaging.
Ciel Fledge has an interesting concept. It keeps you motivated to play one ingame week after another for quite a few hours. However, it fails to deliver the surprises that you're expecting. What remains is an interesting setting and many good stories but major parts of the gameplay, like the combat, remain dull.

Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator is the epitome of simulators with its detailed micromanagement and deep gameplay mechanics. Sure, the game has a few rough edges and would benefit from a few updates to the Switch version in order to make it more console-friendly, but there’s nothing game-breaking. Raising a child is no easy task, Ciel Fledge perfectly emulates this with the constant demands and its high-learning curve of what parenting is actually like. With a constantly evolving child, alongside a constantly evolving world, Ciel Fledge is a game that requires you to adapt to the situation based upon how you want your child to grow.
