In general, Code Romantic is comparable to young adult properties such as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Twilight. Further details about several topics are listed below.
Violence: No graphic violence or gore appears in this game. However, themes of death and grief are an important part of the storyline. Characters must cope with the reality of war, and that includes losing friends and fearing for their own lives.
Romance: The characters involved in romantic relationships are in their early twenties and consent to their interactions. Some suggestive language and actions appear as the characters become more intimate, yet no actual portrayals of sexual acts occur.
Drugs/Alcohol: Little to no mention of these concepts occur.
Language: Some profanity occurs during heated arguments and life threatening situations.
