Code: Realize is a series of otome visual novels developed by Otomate, a subsidiary of Idea Factory. Following the release of the first game, Code: Realize became a flagship otome series for Idea Factory, spawning sequels, an anime series, and the rare console release (a compilation and a sequel on PlayStation 4), previously reserved only for older hits with long-established fanbases such as Hakuoki. The games were localized in the west by Aksys Games.
Code: Realize is set in a steampunk setting, taking place in a fictional take on Victorian London. In keeping with the theme, the names and roles of the main characters are inspired by classic Western literature, such as Abraham Van Helsing of Bram Stoker's Dracula or Victor Frankenstein of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
