Publisher: Pretty Smart Games / Developer: Pretty Smart Games / Platform: Steam, Itch.io / Release Date: April 30, 2020

Can you learn from gaming? It’s an age-old question and in my studies, I’ve found that you can learn a thing or two from games designed to teach or at least use them as an introductory tool into specific subjects. Code Romantic is one of those games that attempts to gamify learning – in this case, the subject of coding. It’s a tough subject but one that developers Pretty Smart Games attempt to make less intimidating through the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world mixed in with a little romance.

Does this visual novel succeed? Well, yes and no. Code Romantic isn’t going to have you coding your own games or hacking into computers just yet. However, it tries its damnedest to help you understand the subject of coding and make it less intimidating.
